  • Description

    A to aide of Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and India's new High Commissioner to Australia died along with 46 others when a blazing Indian jetliner crashed near a fashionable Delhi residential area on Friday (1 June).

    The jet, a Boeing 737 belonging to Indian Airlines, came down in flames while preparing to land after a two-hour flight from the south Indian city of Madras. It was the second major crash on the approach to Delhi's Palam Airport within a ???.

    Indian Airlines said there were 58 passengers aboard the aircraft, which apparently broke up before coming down and burning out of control.

    Some passengers managed to scramble from the wreckage, and they said they could see the flames from inside the aircraft and that there had been widespread panic among the passengers.
