Indore, Jun 16 (PTI) Passengers onboard an Air India plane had a close shave for the second consecutive day as it suffered a bird-hit while landing at the city airport today.

Air India''s Mumbai-Indore-Bhopal-Delhi flight (IC-133) with 140 passengers and six crew members onboard was landing at the Devi Ahilyabai Airport when a bird hit the aircraft, Airport Director Vivek Upadhyaya said.
