Iran: An Iranian passenger plane overshot a runway as it landed Monday in the southwestern city of Bandar-e Mahshahr, barrelling into an adjacent highway without causing casualties. Arriving at Mahshahr airport, the pilot landed the aircraft too late and this caused him to miss the runway.
The McDonnell Douglas jet, belonging to Iran’s Caspian Airlines, was flying from Tehran’s Mehrabad Airport with 135 passengers plus the plane’s crew. All were reported safe.
Iran’s aviation authority said, “the cause of the incident is being investigated”.
