Plane Slides Off Runway In IST

Sun Jul 25, 2004 5:06 pm

It was just mentioned on the 10:00 news on the radio (HR Skyline) - a charter plane from DUS to IST went off the runway after landing - the plane, a F100 according to the report - was supposedly experiencing problems with the landing gear.

All 107 persons on board left the plane via slides, no reports of anyone hurt.

That's all they reported just now.

Smile - it confuses people!

I first thought it was Germania, but spiegel.de now reports it's Inter Airlines. Bad luck for them, the aircraft is just a few weeks in service...
