Plane comes off runway at German airport

Forced evacuation of 168 passengers as Nouvelair flight slips off the runway during takeoff from Dortmund airport.

A passenger jet slipped off the runway at Dortmund Airport early today, forcing the evacuation of 168 people on board. No one has been reported injured, German officials say.

The Airbus A321 rolled off the runway during an attempt to take off this morning. The plane was operated by Nouvelair, a private Tunisian airline, and was laying over in Dortmund on a journey between Berlin Schoenefeld and Monastir.

Hmm, earlier this year I was on board of a Wizzair A320 also in DTM when we had a rejected take-off due to a bird-strike during take-off (a pheasant). Wonder if it was the same again.

That would be one tough and determined pheasant to knock out two passenger aircraft! Big grin

actually, this was a landing accident. News is that the airport is open again after they brought in special equipment from DUS and cleared the runway finally at 9 pm

Those things are evil - I've nearly been killed by hitting one of those at speed on bike, I can't think they'd do a jet engine much good either!

Thank you, that made my day! Here is a link to an article in a German online magazine, including some pictures:

Is it just me or aren't you surprised that this made actually very little news in Germany? Of course slides weren't deployed, so evacuation is a little bit dramatic, but still, after the Spanair crash in public opinion airplanes are death traps right now, and so I would have expected it to be a big story.

Apparently, the passengers were not "evacuated" but disembarked via rear stairways ..

I live in DTM (the city, not the airport of course), and there are always political debates about either extending the runway and lifting the curfew, or closing the airport alltogether. I rarely use DTM, but take the train over to DUS. DTM is basically just an airport for leisure flights, and some LCC like Easyjet, Germanwings and Wizzair. IIRC LH has axed their ~4x daily flights to MUC recently.
