IndiGo Airways A321 Suffers Tail Strike During Landing
On Jan. 2, an Air IndiGo Airbus A321 reported a tail strike after landing in Kolkata, India. No injuries were reported. Air IndiGo says the incident is being investigated while the aircraft is being assessed for damages. While bumpy landings are common, tail strikes occur fewer & farther between. Tail strikes on landing are more dangerous vs. tail strikes on takeoff, as the tail can contact the runway prior to the main landing gear, causing damage to the aft pressure bulkhead.
