Air India crash: plane landed too far along runway, investigators say

  • The crash at an airport in Kozhikode killed at least 18 people when the Boeing 737 skidded off the runway, hurtled down a slope and broke apart
  • India’s civil aviation chief said it looked like the plane had landed about one-third of the way along the airstrip, not leaving it enough room to stop
