印度航空公司地勤人员被吸入飞机引擎



MUMBAI: In a freak accident, an Air India service engineer died after he got sucked into the live engine of an A-319 aircraft at Mumbai airport on Wednesday evening. The engineer, identified as Ravi Subramanium, was in his forties. At the time of going to the press, the body was yet to be recovered from the engine.

孟买:本周三晚间孟买机场发生了一起罕见的事故,一名印度航空公司的维护工程师被吸入一架A-319客机的引擎中死亡,该工程师为四十多岁的拉维.撒伯莱曼纽姆,在新闻发布会召开时,他的尸体仍未能从引擎中取出。



In an A-319 aircraft the distance from the nose to the engine is about 30 feet. "When an aircraft is being pushed back, the engine, even when if it has been started is on idle thrust, that's about ten per cent of its total thrust. During taxiing its never more than 35%. Ground staff and technicians know quite well the area that should be kept clear in front of the engines," said an airline official.

A-319型客机的机鼻至引擎的距离大约是30英尺,“在客机被向后推时,即便已启动的引擎处于慢车推力状态,也可以达到其总推力的约10%,在飞机滑行时会接近35%,地勤人员和技师都非常了解引擎前方多大的范围是不可接近的。”航空公司官员说。



This is the second tragedy of its kind at Indian airports. In 1995, a person was crossing the Hyderabad runway on his moped when an aircraft (VT-EPM) landed there. Since the engines were on and the person was dangerously close on the runway, he got sucked in. "That person was a bystander who was neither working at the airport, not with any airline. He borrowed an airport pass from a policeman posted at the airport who happened to be his relative and that is how got access to crossing the runway on his moped. That was the time airport security was not very stringent and access was not tightly controlled," said an old timer.

这是印度机场发生的第二起类似的悲剧。1995年,一个人骑着一台助力脚踏车穿过海德拉巴机场的跑道时,一架飞机已降落在那儿,引擎是运转的,该人进入了危险的距离,结果被吸入。“那个人是一个无关人员,既不在机场工作,也不属于任何航空公司,他从在机场值勤的警察亲戚那里借了一本通行证,骑着他的脚踏车进入了机场跑道,那时机场的安保不是非常严格,出入控制不那么紧。”一名老员工说。
