Manita Roy said:
"To everyone wondering, this airport is located at high mountains in remote region with no infrastructure available. The tyre burst and the plane blocked entire runway. No such equipment to remove the plane was available. The plane had to be pushed sideways anyhow and these people pushed the plane. A great example of unity and spirit."
Kunal Patil said:
"What else we can expect from country like Nepal."
Tronix Gamerz replied:
"K it was tyre burst and they were helping plane off runway because it was blocking the area for the other planes."
Aeroplane passengers pray hard
A message by @instablog9ja revealed that the incident forced the plane to have an emergency landing in Port Harcourt.
The pilot made that decision after sounds of cracks were heard from the aeroplane's engines. In the video, there was a great noise of people praying the only way they could.
