Descripción:
A Sahara India Airlines Boeing 737, VT-SIA, was engaged in a training flight with an instructor and 3 trainee pilots. Five circuits and landings were completed uneventfully. During the sixth touch-and-go exercise, after the take off from runway 28, the aircraft had climbed to 400-500 feet when it banked left and crashed at the International Terminal Apron. The wreckage of aircraft hit an Aeroflot Ilyushin 86 aircraft parked on Bay No. 45 as a result of which it also caught fire. Two Aeroflot employees, a Russian ground engineer and an airport worker were killed inside the Il-86. One employee of an airport oil company was killed on the tarmac.
The Ilyushin 86, RA-86119, had made an unscheduled diversion to Delhi due to technical problems. The airplane had been repaired and fully fuelled (52 tons).

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The accident occurred due to application of wrong rudder by trainee pilot during engine failure exercise. Capt. did not guard/block the rudder control and give clear commands as Instructor so as to obviate the application of wrong rudder control by the trainee pilot".
