MS A320 Off Runway At NBO

Wed Jun 06, 2012 1:29 pm

Looks like the nose gear was locked at 90°, but a "witness" who saw the landing says the gear was properly deployed and aligned when they touched down.

At least the damage is not too high apparently, although this aircraft will be out for a while and probably generate some impact in the SU operations.

SU is Aeroflot not Egyptair.

Please note:

SU = Aeroflot
MS = EgyptAir

Yes, SU is just the country code for Egypt.

Have to say, I wouldn't find it that comforting to have a F/A say "this sort of thing happens all the time"! (Mind you, in fairness to MS, it doesn't happen that often).
