Air India plane crash
New Delhi, Nov 17: Almost after six months of the deadly Mangalore plane crash, a report submitted to the Civil Aviation Ministry claimed that it was the main pilot Zlatko Glusica, who caused the accident in which at least 158 people were killed.

The report also revealed that Glusica did not heed to his co-pilot Capt HS Ahluwalia's suggestion for taking "a go-around" and not to land.

The Air Indian Express on May 22, 2010 had crashed outside Mangalore airport in Karnataka, killing 158 people when it burst into flames after short of runway and plunged into a nearby forest.

The CVR recording of 2.05 minutes also indicated that despite being warned by the aircraft computers to "pull up, the captain had not paid any heed. He also ignored the co-pilot telling him to go-around," stated the report.
