The security forces managed to round up the dog within 10 minutes. At 15h14, the plane safely landed. Tho Xuan airport’s security force later had organized an inspection and checked the system of security fences, door gates, and sealed the hole to avoid a similar incident, according to Tuoi Tre.
The aviation industry’s regulations mandate security forces to be in charge of catching stray animals wandering on runways, taxiways, aprons, in a bid to ensure flights’ safety upon landing or taking off. Animals, like cats and dogs, might be sucked into a plane’s engine if the proximity is too close. Thus, the aviation industry stipulates to regularly check the surface of the runway, taxiway, and apron to ensure that there are no foreign objects or animals entering the airport, affecting flight safety.
