The Mumbai-bound flight of Singapore Airlines mistakenly made an approach to land at the Juhu airport on Monday morning.
 
The the flight #SQ422 was cleared to land on Mumbai runway number 09. After the error was picked up, the aircraft changed its course and after a go-around, it landed on the correct runway of the Mumbai airport.

Sensational reporting. I don't expect the operating crew to even aware of the existence of the small Juhu airport. Going on instrument flying, there is no need to look outside so far out. Besides, SQ pilots are not normally dependent on visual approach since most of them started with jet airliners, unlike their counterparts in America or Australia.

Sensational reporting.

 

Yes, it is sensational reporting - in these days of instant gratification, stories cannot be thoroughly verified. That is why we have so much fake news....
