The door of a four-seater plane operated by the Telangana State Aviation Academy crash-landed on a building in Lallaguda on Monday. No injuries or damage was reported.
Residents of Yadav Basti had approached the police with the door, and lodged a complaint.
The cops learnt that the door belonged to a trainer aircraft operated by the academy.
The door had crashed with a loud bang but did not cause any injuries, Lallaguda Inspector K. Kumar Singh said. It was handed over to the academy.
Academy’s Principal Chandrashekar Rao confirmed that the incident had taken place. It was being investigated.
“The Director-General of Civil Aviation will investigate the incident. The plane, a multi-engine Diamond DA-42 aircraft, was flying with a trainee and a senior pilot when the incident occurred,” he said.
The plane continued flying and landed safely, Dr. Rao said.
“The door closer to the rear of the plane had come off during flight by itself. It did not cause any safety issues for the pilots,” he added.
It may be recalled that a trainer aircraft of the Indian Air Force crashed near Keesara last month, after taking off from Air Force Station, Hakimpet.
The pilot had ejected before crash. IAF had instituted an inquiry into the incident.
