INDICE DE GALERIAS
TOKYO (AP) — A South Korean passenger jet overshot the runway at an airport in northwestern Japan, but no one was hurt, local television reported.
At least 19 flights into Niigata Airport were canceled Tuesday morning while an investigation continued into Monday night’s incident, Tokyo Broadcasting System reported.
Korean Air Lines Flight 763 landed at about 8 p.m. but could not come to a complete halt before the end of the landing strip and the Boeing 737 to rest with its front half in a grassy area at the end of the runway, the report said. The flight originated from Seoul’s Incheon International Airport.
“I saw that the landing strip wasn’t going to be enough, then “bam!” — it made a sudden stop,” a passenger told TBS, without giving his name.
Japanese transportation authorities told the broadcaster there were no injuries.
The incident is the second in a month involving a South Korean airline. On July 6, an Asiana Airlines flight crash-landed in San Francisco, killing three people and injuring dozens.
