Indian Passenger Plane Hits Buffalo On Runway

Suzanne Robertson
The airline COO has taken to Twitter to express his anger at airport security.


Kapoor is the COO of SpiceJet, India's the fourth largest airline. 

SpiceJet Boeing 737-800 was taking off at the Surat airport on Thursday when it struck a buffalo. The plane's captain reported that the buffalo was set against a black background, and therefore invisible. No passengers or crew were hurt in the accident but the buffalo died. 

Some on Twitter were comparing the collision to a bird strike but Kapoor wasn't having any of it.
