Air India plane makes emergency landing

New Delhi: An Air India flight to London from the Indian capital was forced to turn back and make an emergency landing Saturday, 30 minutes after take-off, an airport spokesman said.

“There was a technical problem. The lights of a smoke indicator went off," Arun Arora, a spokesman for New Delhi’s international airport, told AFP.

All 115 passengers and 15 crew members were safe, airline officials said.

It was the second such incident this week. On Thursday, an aircraft of no-frills airline GoAir made an emergency landing after a problem was detected with its nose wheel.
