MUMBAI: A bat decided to hitch a free ride onboard an Air India flight to Newark, which had the pilots return to land back into Delhi about two hours after take off on Thursday.
The decision to carry out an ‘air return due to sighting of bat’ was taken about 30 minutes after flight AI-105 departed at 2.20 am, said a source. The aircraft then circled over for about two hours before it landed back into Delhi.
An Air India source said that the mammal was removed and the same aircraft departed at 6.37 am and landed in Newark at 11.30. (local time).
