Midair fight; Two Spicejet pilots clashes over landing

Putting 160 passenger's lives in danger, two pilots found arguing on who should land first. Ironically they are from the same airline Spicejet. The incident had occurred on Wednesday at around 7 pm when the Indore ATC cleared the Delhi-Indore flight of SpiceJet for landing. Around the same time, the airline's  Hyderabad-Indore flight was also on the approach but was to land after the Delhi flight.

"However, the pilot of the flight from Delhi contacted the ATC, saying the Hyderabad flight pilot was arguing with him over landing. In the process, the two aircraft came at a distance of 3,100 feet though they were in the required vertical separation limit," a source from the ATC added.

No official response from the airline has come so far.
