Plane Skids Off Runway At SHJ

Mon Nov 27, 2006 9:54 pm

Just got my daily email from 7DAYS:

Quote:
A collapsed tyre caused a non-commercial aircraft to skid off the runway at Sharjah Airport yesterday (Sunday 26th November), forcing its closure for a few hours. Sharjah Airport authorities said yesterday that a test flight, used for checking on navigation systems in the airport, veered off the runway after its left tyre collapsed.

Anyone in SHJ, DXB or surrounding area got anymore information?

Again?! Well, it's probably not Air Atlanta this time.

Never tell your girlfriend about all the 'action' you're getting at the airport - only photogs understand that.

It seems reading the article that Sharjah only has one runway, is that true? I thought it was a busy (cargo) airport for tech stops between asia and europe.
