An Aeroplane Crash

To be a witness to an accident is bad, but to be a part of the accident is horrifying. As a witness, a person feels helpless, however as a victim one feels let down by the Almighty.

It was six minutes ago when I took a flight from Bangalore to New Delhi, It was an early morning flight and was to reach New Delhi at 12 in the noon.

The flight took off on schedule and everything was proceeding normally. About seven minutes before landing, the captain of the aircraft spoke to the passengers stating that the wheels of the aircraft had jammed and that he would be trying his level best to land the aircraft safely.

Inside the aeroplane the reaction of the passengers was panicky. Some women started crying. Some men started rushing towards the doors of the aircraft. They were restricted to their seats by the cabin crew. I could see people casually praying for a safe landing.

A few air-hostesses moved towards the emergency exits and began operating some instruments on the door panel. The captain asked us to sit on our seats and tie the seat belts, as he was trying to make a belly landing. The no-smoking signs were up. The air-hostesses explained the emergency exit procedures to the passengers. She told us to hide our faces in our laps. Once the aircraft had stopped we were to open the seat-belts and rush towards the emergency exits, the inflated slides would be ready to make our getaway smooth.

The aircraft started losing height. We could hear the engines screaming as the pilot tried to control the descent and the speed of the aircraft. Suddenly there was a loud thud and we experienced a few bumps. The aircraft stopped on its belly and slowly toppled on one s de. We immediately opened our seat-belts and grabbed whatever luggage we could lay our hands-on. We rushed towards the emergency exit. There we saw a huge balloon in the shape of a slide. We were told to jump on it. We did as we were told. The slide cushioned our fall. We were soon on the airfield. The air hostess kept on yelling at us to run away from the aircraft. All the passengers who had come outran for their lives. As we ran I turned back to looked at the aircraft. It was very badly damaged. One of its wings was broken into two. I could also see the fuel tank from where the fuel was slowly seeping out. At a distance, I could hear the clang of many fire engines rushing in to stop any outbreak of fire.

The whole experience of the crash landing of the aircraft was a horrifying one. We experienced death at very close quarters. I pray to Almighty that such an experience never befalls anyone.
