The moment a passenger plane skidded off the runway after a forced landing at an international airport, with everyone on board surviving
- A plane crashed dramatically in Somalia, apparently after its landing gear failed
- Despite the terrible accident, all 30 passengers and four crew members on board survived.
This is the amazing moment when a passenger plane crashed at Mogadishu International Airport.
Video captured the plane’s dramatic slide across the runway in Somalia as the pilot struggled to land the plane safely at Aden Adde airport on July 11.
Despite the shocking accident, all 30 passengers and four crew members on board were reported to have survived, with only two “minor injuries” needing treatment.
The crash was reported to be caused by faulty landing gear.
The images show the plane crossing the runway and breaking through a wall that borders it.
The image shows the plane sliding down the runway, allegedly after a problem with the landing gear.
The plane, reportedly affected by a tailwind, turns as it approaches the border fence.
As the plane crosses the runway, its wing makes contact with the fence, causing the plane to spin.
The rear of the plane then hits the fence bringing it to a dramatic stop.
Parts of the plane seem to break loose and shoot past the rigid edge.
Images of the aftermath showed the extent of the damage to the Halla Airlines plane.
The fuselage appears to have been broken from behind, and from another angle, the cockpit appears to have collapsed.
Video also showed a fire truck and emergency workers on the scene afterwards.
The plane is believed to have been on a domestic flight from Puntland in northern Somalia.
Somali state media later confirmed that the Halla Airlines plane skidded off the runway.
Industry insiders have named the aircraft an Embraer EMB 120, as reported in The express.
world flight noted that the conditions were good at the time, with ‘good visibility’ but 17kt winds from the south-southwest, which they say would have generated a ‘tailwind’.
On July 18, 2022, a Fokker 50 operated by Jubba Airways similarly crashed at Aden Abbe International Airport in Mogadishu, with all 36 on board surviving.
While landing, the wind from the plane hit the ground and broke up, causing the plane to roll off the runway.
US Army personnel were coincidentally present, undergoing medical training, and were able to help evacuate the passengers.
