Moments of panic were experienced by the passengers of a plane that was forced to abort the landing at the last minute in the Mexico City International Airport, after verifying that the runway was occupied by another aircraft, which had not been able to take off in time.
The video shows the moment in which the pilot is carrying out the respective runway approach maneuversafter having obtained the permits from the control tower for the landing, when suddenly it has to abort ‘in extremis’ thanks to the warning given by pilots on the ground about the plane that had not taken off on time to Guatemala.
The fact unleashed the indignation of the passengers and forced to initiate a research for the clarification of the case, due to an oversight in technical matters that could have ended in tragedy.
PILOT AVOIDS A TRAGEDY:
Controllers authorized a Volaris plane to land at the Mexico City airport.
But on the runway there was another plane from the same airline.
The pilot of the first plane notices and calls off the landing at the last minute. pic.twitter.com/gYQgbrhYGe
