    Please, this is not an accident. An aviation accident is when an aircraft is beyond repair or if there is one or more fatalities. Here, it most likely only an ‘incident’.
    Do your research well as your bio says you are a ‘professional’ aviation writer.
    Thanks!

      Dear Mr Rajbanshi

      As soon as an airplane sustains substential damage, it is considered as ‘accident’ by the authorities. When I read that the plane undershoot the runway, and then finally stops in the bushes, it looks very optimistic to classify it as a simple ‘incident’: a major structural assessment and repair of the airplane will be required before an eventual return to service, so by law it is definitely an accident.
      I can understand your national pride, but definitions must be respected, and legal rules followed.
