NEW DELHI : Pilots of the Beechcraft KingAir C90B aircraft—an air ambulance managed by Jet Serve Aviation Pvt. For instance, Club One Air, one of the oldest and largest air charter firms in India, operated about 150 air ambulance flights during April and May. The pilots wanted the Mumbai ATC to confirm whether the landing gear had indeed fallen off. The Mumbai airport at the time was operating with lower than usual staffing amid the second wave of covid-19, which had necessitated a state-wide lockdown in Maharashtra. As the plane approached the runway, and prepared for the landing, airport and DGCA officials held their breath.
