Another website is showing an image of UTAir B737-500 VQ-BAC that went off the runway at VKO today. This aircraft is ex CO N33608, and delivered to the Russian airline about a year ago.

Has anybody more info about this incident? It seems a lot of Boeing 737's come off the runway lately after other recent similar incidents...

There has been a rash of 737 accidents and incidents lately, hasn't there? Even American Airlines is under the FAA's scrutiny for three incidents & accidents in the past few months. I suppose it's the odds caching up with airplane. There are 3,000 in service worldwide.

Of course, once is there one incident, then the media seems to bring up every minor problem. I think that tends to make it seem like there is a major problem with the airplane.

I haven't seen any news yet on the incident at VKO. The airplane doesn't look badly damaged, so let's hope no one onboard was hurt.

It doesnt have anything to do about the aircraft being a 737. It could have happened to any other a/c.


On another note, it occurred another "aircraft off runway" at ARN involving a IR A300

True. I don't say that it is the 737 in particular. Although, lately a lot of 737's went off... in similar cases. I don't mean anything with that, but it's just the occurance.
