Rough translation of comms from Aterizare ratat? la Cluj-Napoca | Dialogul dintre comandant ?i turnul de control

Pilot: 9301 - We're off the runway!
Tower: Confirm. Welcome! Continue to Delta to parking.
Pilot: No no, we're _OFF_ the runway! PAN PAN!
Tower: Confirm, Thank you!
Pilot: We're off the runway - but we're fine, we're on solid ground. Engines still on. Currently assessing the situation and preparing for evacuation.
Tower: Confirm. Ground emergency services notified, help is on the way!
Tower: Can you confirm runway excursion? Any damage? Need to inform ground.
Pilot: Runway excursion, right side. We're now shutting down engines. Looks like we hit ground with one engine. No casualties.
Tower: Confirm right side, informing ground. Confirm, no casualties, help is coming. Runway closed.
Pilot: We need a fire engine to take a look at us from outside, we can't see the whole thing. We're fine, no fire danger. Need to know if we can deploy slides or wait for stairs.
Tower: Confirm, 1st car is at site. We can't see any damage to the plane.

"We're off the runway" and "runway excursion" very close when attempted in Romanian.

Amazing that, with just a little bit of French and Spanish, I can mostly read Romanian TV captions! "Romance language", indeed.

Will wait for more details before commenting on the event itself.

Start searching Amazon for cheap keyboards, you're going to owe a lot of them!
