Gwalior, Nov. 10 (ANI): Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Governor Rameshwar Thakur had a narrow escape on Tuesday when the state government-owned plane they were travelling in aborted landing after two vehicles were spotted on the runaway of Gwalior airport.

"The plane was barely a few feet above the runway when the pilot spotted the vehicles. He immediately aborted landing and took a go-around," said Manoj Srivastava, Madhya Pradesh Public Relations Commissioner.

Chouhan and Thakur had gone to Gwalior to welcome President Pratibha Patil who was scheduled to present colours to the 47th Squadron and Tactics and Air Combat Development Establishment Wing of the Indian Air Force. (ANI)
