A Dornier 228 aircraft of Tara Air registered ‘9N-AKK’ met a runway excursion incident this morning at Ramechhap Airport during landing.
No serious damage to the aircraft or crew and passengers on board the aircraft has been reported. A flat tyre caused the aircraft to veer just a notch off the runway and caused its nose landing gear only to skid off the runway.
A minor problem on the nose landing gear had been caused. The aircraft has already been inspected and all the passengers and crew on board have been disembarked safely.
