Pune, 20th March 2023: Today, a Su-30 MKI of the Indian Air Force engaged the Aircraft Arrester Barrier at Air Force Station, Pune. The event occurred after a routine training sortie, due to inadequate deceleration experienced by the pilots on the landing roll because of a technical snag.

Indian Air Force spokesperson, Wing Commander Ashish Moghe, said, “There was no damage to the aircraft. Engaging the arrester barrier gear is a planned activity for stopping a fighter aircraft. The runway, which had been closed temporarily, has been made operational again. An investigation has been ordered into the incident.”

Many flights were diverted due to runway closure.
