  • Mumbai plane crash: Husband of pilot killed blames aviation company

The crash of a chartered aircraft in Ghatkopar on Thursday left five persons dead, including the four-member crew and a pedestrian, whose bodies were severely charred, rendering their identification hard. "Today was the first test flight of the aircraft upon completion of maintenance task before applying for the grant of Certificate of Airworthiness/ Airworthiness Review Certificate by DGCA", a tweet by the Ministry said.

"The VT-UPZ was Uttar Pradesh government aircraft till 2014 and was sold to UY Aviation Pvt Ltd, Mumbai in 2014".

The fuselage broke into several pieces and one piece was recovered at least 50 metres away, while some other portions of the plane were seen burning in thick black smoke in the premises of the under-construction building. The aircraft took off from Juhu airport for the test flight.

The footage, however, does not give a clear picture of whether the aircraft burst into flames mid-air or whether it blew up on impact of the crash, an official said.

An Air India passenger plane crashed in 1978 about 3 kilometres (2 miles) off the coast of Bandra, Mumbai. There were four people in the aircraft - two pilots and two aircraft maintenance engineers. "I think the pilot purposefully manoeuvred the plane to this site to avoid casualties", said Prakash S Giri, who lives opposite the construction site where the 12-seater plane crashed. After her studies from Allahabad Central University, Maria completed the pilot training from Rae Bareli Indira Gandhi Flying Academy.
