GURUGRAMThe Indian Aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation has grounded the two SpiceJet pilots who were operating the SG960 Bengaluru-Guwahati flight.
A SpiceJet plane undershot the runway while landing at the Guwahati airport last week on Friday.

The Boeing 737-800 with registration VT-SLL was performing flight SG-960 from Bangalore to Guwahati. According to the local sources, the pilots lost perception of altitude due to low clouds on short finals, causing high descent leading to touchdown at about 2.12G short of the runway threshold.

The hard landing reportedly damaged three threshold lights and rolled out without any further incident. An inspection revealed one of the tires had received cuts. None of the passengers were affected.
