Air India crash: Pilot emptied fuel tanks before landing so the plane doesn’t catch fire

New details are emerging from Air India plane crash at Kozhikode that shook the nation. By Saturday evening, the death toll was 19. The tragedy would have been all the more horrific had it not been for pilot Dipak Sathe. It has now come to light that as landing gear of the plane did not deploy, pilot Sathe made three rounds of the airport so that fuel tanks were empty. This created a massive difference as the plane didn’t catch fire after it crashed. Sathe died in the crash, but his actions may have saved lives of more than 100 people onboard the plane.
