Yesterday, an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 was involved in a peculiar incident as it veered off the runway after landing at Addis Ababa. Flight ET-307 was left with no major damage after wet conditions affected its passage down the runway.
Having flown from Nairobi, Kenya, flight ET-307 landed in Addis Ababa yesterday at 18:20 UTC.
As reported by The Aviation Herald, the runway surface at Addis Ababa was wet, causing the aircraft to experience difficulties whilst decelerating down the runway.
Flight data shows that the aircraft landed at a speed of around 155 knots and traveled down the runway until it crossed the displaced threshold. It then veered to the right before coming to a stop 670 feet from the end of the runway.
There were no injuries as a result of the incident and the aircraft did not sustain any notable damage. As of yet Ethiopian Airlines has not been available to respond to Simple Flying’s request for comment on the incident.
