Plane skids off runway in Myanmar


YANGON: A Myanmar Airways plane carrying about 60 passengers skidded off the runway at a regional airport on Monday, the second such incident in less than a month.

Both propellers on the Chinese-made Xian MA60 were damaged in the landing at Kawthaung in the southern region of Taninthari, but nobody was injured.

In mid-May, a Myanma Airways MA60 overshot the end of a runway at an airport in eastern Shan State due to suspected brake failure, injuring two people.

The same type of aircraft crash-landed at an airport in eastern Indonesia on Monday, injuring two people.

The plane involved in the latest accident in Myanmar is about three years old.
