MA Aircraft Skidded Off Runway At BUD

Fri Jan 06, 2006 9:10 pm

Sorry guys, no English link yet, but I've just read this on a Hungarian online news site:

MA671 from Berlin skidded off from runway 13R today morning 11:08LT at Budapest Ferihegy Airport (BUD/LHBP). All passengers abandoned the plane safely, no injuries at all! Runway 13R/31L now is closed due to investigations... I have not yet received any more information about aircraft type or anything else... Looking forward...

Regards,
Andras

Glad to hear everyone on board are safe.
Is it Fokker 70? Was plane damaged?

Updated news says it was a Boeing 737-600 with 32 pax onboard. The aircraft landed normally, but they wanted to leave the runway at high speed and aircraft skidded off from it due to high speed turning.

Ummm..silly question from new member but...why would you want to leave the runway at high speed? Will the Captain face some kind of prosecution?

Thanks

Probably because another plane(s) was due to land or take-off.

Some news say they got an ATC message, that they should leave the runway immediately. Other reason for the high speed turning should be the end of the runway... Maybe they reached the end of the runway with a high speed.
There is a short report on Malev's site: Malev.hu
