Days after a SpiceJet technician lost his life after he got stuck in the main landing gear door while working on an aircraft at the Kolkata airport, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Saturday informed that the man was “untrained and working without any supervision”.
The civil aviation regulatory body had earlier an inquiry into the incident.
Rohit Bhushan Pandey, a trainee technician, was doing maintenance work in the right-hand main landing gear wheel well area of a Q400 aircraft which was parked in bay no. 32 at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport when the accident took place.
Inadvertently, the main landing gear hydraulic door closed and he got stuck in between the hydraulic door flaps.
His body was removed from the landing gear with the help of Fire brigade.
The hydraulic doors were broken to rescue Pandey but he was pulled out dead, a SpiceJet spokesperson earlier said.
