NGHỆ AN — The Civil Aviation Authority of Việt Nam (CAAV) is investigating the damage caused to a local household’s roof allegedly caused by an aircraft landing at an airport in central Nghệ An Province.
Earlier, last Friday, Lê Văn Tiến, 56, a local in Nghi Trung Commune of Nghi Lộc District reported that 200 tiles came off the roof of his house. Twenty of the tiles were completely damaged.
No casualties or other damage to property was recorded.
At 1pm when the incident occurred, there was no wind, Tiến said, but he did see an airplane flying past his house.
He blamed the damage to his roof on the aircraft landing at the nearby Vinh International Airport.
Northern Airports Authority and security officers of the Vinh International Airport came to Tiến’s house the same day to examine the case and report it to the CAAV for further investigation.
CAAV said that it would study the air traffic and flight route control information and ask the airline to deal with the incident in line with the laws if the damage had been caused by the airplane.
Locals in Nghi Trung Commune are reportedly usually wary of living near the airport due to the noise and strong winds caused by aircrafts landing and taking off. — VNS
