Real story behind 'Runway 34: What really happened?

The incident took place on August 18, 2015. A Jet Airways flight 9W 555 arrived from Doha, the Capital of Qatar, over Kochi at 5.45 am in the morning. It was a Boeing 737-800. The visibility was low for the aircraft's landing due to the haze that came out of heavy rain during the previous night. After holding on for almost half an hour, the pilot decided to divert the aircraft to Trivandrum.

However, the visibility at Trivandrum was also less than what was required for the landing. The brave pilots declared “May Day” and managed to land the aircraft 'blindly' in the seventh attempt. If the pilots would have gone for another go-around, the plane would have crashed due to lack of fuel, the officials said. Therefore, the incident turned out to be one of the most serious safety incidents at any Indian airport.
