DGCA de-rosters air traffic controller after Vistara flights narrowly avoid major accident at Delhi airport
Air traffic controller de-rostered after runway incursion involving Vistara flights.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation has de-rostered an air traffic controller following a runway incursion involving two Vistara flights. Officials inadvertently gave clearance for crossing and take off of two different aircraft from the same runway - essentially setting the Vistara flights on a collision course. The error was soon rectified with the tower controller asking the Delhi–Bagdogra flight to cancel take off.
