I was going to Dhaka from Comilla . I decided to go by air instead of train. By air it takes twenty-five minutes,by train four and a half to five hours. When the plane reached the said destination,it did not land as usual,it circled around for what seemed like eternity. I was nervous,this I knew was unusual. To make matters worse there was a lady traveling for the first time,she continued asking,’how long does it take?’ I was in no mood to reply,I knew something is terribly wrong. I noticed the flight attendants moving back and forth.They were not telling us anything.

After circling around for how long,God knows, the plane made a belly landing. The pilot was trying to use up the fuel,by flying around,when it was indicated that the fuel tank was empty. He landed.

I heard the flight attendants telling each other,”Thank God They are safe”. For me that was a,”Close Call”.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this story.

    I personally do not like to fly. It is, however, a fast way to get to some places. It sounds as if the flight you described was managed well by the pilot and his/her crew.

    All good wishes,

    robert
