MNA plane veers off runway at Manaung Airport

November 16, 2016
A Myanmar National Airlines (MNA) plane skidded off the runway while landing at Manaung Airport in Rakhine State yesterday morning. There were no injuries but the plane suffered damage.
The Cessna Grand Caravan XY-AMC was landing at Manaung Airport, also known as Samonte Airport, in Kyauk Phyu District at about 9am when the right tire of the plane became flat, causing the plane to veer off the runway.
None of the 8 passengers or crew members on board were injured. It is learnt that only the propeller was damaged.
Myanmar National Airlines is making arrangements to bring in another plane so that the flight need not be cancelled, it is learnt.
