The Air India crash in Karipur airport brought back nightmarish memories of the 2010 Mangalore crash.
A committee from the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) warned of a Mangalore-type incident at the Calicut International Airport due to lack of buffer zone in front of runway.
The Boeing 737-800 aircraft while landing overshot the runway and went down 35 feet into a slope before breaking up into two pieces.
As many as 172 people have been hospitalised after the accident, with officials involved in the rescue operations saying that 16 of them are in a critical condition.
A similar crash happened 10 years back when a Dubai to Mangalore flight overshot the runway while attempting a landing at the Mangalore International Airport.
