Spicejet DH8D at Belgaum on Oct 24th 2021, landed on opposite runway
Last Update: October 24, 2021 / 18:17:39 GMT/Zulu time
The crew taxied the aircraft to the apron, had passengers disembark and embark for the return flight and performed the return flight SG-3734 without reporting the occurrence. After arrival back in Hyderabad a report had been received by the airport of Belgaum, the CVR and FDR were secured, the CVR however already was overwritten.
The airline confirmed ATC had cleared the flight to land on runway 26 at Belgaum, however, the aircraft landed on runway 08. Both pilots have been de-rostered.
India's AAIB is going to investigate the occurrence. The AAIB reported the aircraft landed on the other, unassigned end of the runway. While this is serious enough already the crew apparently committed an even bigger mistake by not reporting the occurrence and performing the return flight. About 4 hours after that landing on the opposite end of the runway the airport operator sent their report in, but by then the CVR, storing two hours of audio, was already overwritten.
