AtlasJet 757 Is Out Of Runway In Istanbul

Mon Feb 07, 2005 4:32 pm

Due to heavy snow and bad weather conditions, an AtlasJet -757 I guess- aircraft with 180 pax couldn't stop at the end of the runway of Istanbul Ataturk International Airport. It was coming from Frankfurt.
thnx God noone was injured...

According to radio and newspaper reports here in Frankfurt, it was an AtlasJet A320 (link, but only in German: http://www.fr-aktuell.de/ressorts/nachrichten_und_politik/nachrichten_aktuell/?cnt=628337) with 150 people on board - but they agree on nobody being hurt, fortunately.

The aircraft is removed from the mud and now it is in the maintenance hangar.
I hope it will fly soon...
