Another incident in Servia just happened today, now at Pristina airport: http://www.serbianna.com/news/2006/01207.html
A MA Fokker 70 skidded of the runway while landing in snowy weather at Pristina on Thursday, prompting authorities to close the international airport.
None of the plane's 45 passengers and five crew members were injured, and no damage could be observed on the aircraft

Quoting Dc863 (Reply 11): LH with only a 46% load factor. AF packs them in like sardines to CDG. In Nov. my AF flight from BEG-CDG was 100% full.
So? That was some 3 months ago... In January/February there's always a "hole" in business, not only aviation...
In November, our sales were 30% more than we were expecting, but now in February we have to deal with about 45% less... That's the way it is
I am familiar with that event, but that was NOT a near miss, just a GO AROUND initiated by DLH pilot. JAT and DLH were packed tightly on an ILS, JAT reduced speed to minima, DLH being a little faster and that's all. DLH landed without any problems few minutes later.
Where did you hear about that?

I fly on LH3409 often -- in fact I will be on Monday -- and most of the time passengers are groggy due to the early departure time, so I can imagine their surprise when the plane plowed into the field ...
Does anyone have an idea when the preliminary incident report will be done? In these circumstances, do the Serbian and German CAA's do a joint investigation or separate?

It IS BK after all
PS: Here's my translation
The Jat Media Center has stated that most of the passengers on the Lufthansa plane that skidded off of the taxiway today, flew to Frankfurt at 14.00 on JAT flight 350, of the Serbian national carrier.
The Airbus A320 of the German company Lufthansa with 63 passengers and 5 crew members slid off of the taxiway at the 'Belgrade' airport in the morning, about 6.30am close to the time of the departure of Belgrade-Frankfurt
In a double statement, Belgrade Airport and Lufthansa haven't found the reason for the incident, they only said that noone was injured, and there was no apparent damage to the aircraft.

The information there sounded like a major alert. LH plane aborted landing in the last second, circling around, etc. In fact, if all they have were passengers' testimonies, that is understandable. Unprofessional, but understandable. After all, have you ever seen a decent information on anything related to civil aviation on any of the local TV channels?
