New Delhi: A Kingfisher Airlines aircraft on Thursday hit a dog on the runway at the Bangalore Airport during its takeoff causing the nose landing gear to collapse.

The aircraft, having never left the ground, came to a halt on the runway and the crew performed an emergency evacuation of the 25 passengers on board.

The ATR was under the command of Captain Mmopi who has over 11,000 hours of flying experience, according to a press release by the airlines
