I just heard on the local radio station that there was an apparent incident at Aqaba Airport with a passenger plane overshooting the runway on landing and overturning?

Anyone have any further info? If indeed true, hope everyone is OK!

Apparently it's not a crash after all:

http://www.cnn.com/2005/WORLD/meast/...7/26/mideast.crash.reut/index.html

JERUSALEM (Reuters) -- A Jordanian plane suffered a tire puncture upon landing at an airport in southern Jordan on Tuesday, an Israeli rescue service said revising an earlier report that the plane had crashed.

"This was not a crash. The plane's tire burst and the ruckus appeared like a crash," a spokesman for ZAKA told Reuters when asked about the incident near Aqaba, on Jordan's border with Israel.

KC135, your humorous comments are too close to the truth of news around the world. But thank God/Allah, apparently no one was injured or killed in this incident.

I agree, that no one was hurt or killed is the most important part.
