An Indigo plane from Mumbai with 161 passengers and crew developed a technical snag in its front nose wheel indicator on Wednesday while descending which was later resolved by the pilot.

“IndiGo flight 6E-933 from Mumbai made a normal landing at Trivandrum airport this evening. While descending, the commander observed an anti-skid nose-wheel steering glitch in the aircraft which needed the computer reset procedure (to rectify the glitch) as prescribed by Airbus,” the airline said in a statement.

Following the standard operating procedure, the pilot immediately informed the ATC which activated the rescue services to be on standby, it said.

The aircraft made a normal landing at 1618 hours following which computer reset was carried out by the pilot, and thereby the glitch was rectified, it added.

“The pilot was able to operate the nose wheel indicator after a second try and the flight made a normal landing,” airport director George Tharakkan said.

The flight after a thorough check later left on its onward journey to Bengaluru-Kolkata, airlines sources said.
