China Eastern A321 skids off runway at HKIA

A China Eastern Airlines Airbus A321 aircraft this morning (May 24) skidded off the runway after landing at Hong Kong International Airport.

China’s Civil Aviation Department (CAD) says: “The aircraft concerned (flight number: MU765) was flying from Nanjing to Hong Kong at 10.52am today. The Civil Aviation Department’s (CAD) Air Traffic Control Tower spotted the aircraft deviating from the runway after touching down.

“It eventually stopped with its nose wheel and the right-hand main landing gear rested on the grass area. The CAD immediately initiated the emergency alert procedure and notified relevant parties to attend to the incident.”

The CAD says it is investigating the “serious incident”.
