A SEAIR plane overshot the runway upon arriving at the Manila Domestic Airport Sunday afternoon, ABS-CBN News reported.

The SEAIR Dornier plane, with registry number RPC 5328, overshot the grassy part at the end of Runway 13-31 after arriving from Caticlan, Aklan, at around 5:55 p.m.

According to Manila International Airport Authority assistant general manager Octavio Lina, the plane carried 32 passengers and three flight crew.

The pilot was identified only as Captain Mendoza.

There were no major casualties reported though some passengers sustained minor injuries and were taken to the Philippine Airlines Clinic near Villamor Airbase in Pasay City.

The plane is still at the grassy end of the runway as of posting time.

I thought "incidents" are exclusively happenning with Asian Spirit only ...:rolleyes:

Seriously - i wonder why this happened since even the shorter "domestic-runway" is not short at all (in particular for a turboprop like the Do 328)

SEAIR so far had no "incidents" which lets me expect a tech failure rather than a human error as the cause !:hmm:
