A Biman Air aircraft has skidded off the runway in Yangon, Myanmar and broken into pieces. The Biman Airlines flight was carrying a reported 33 people. Four people have been injured in the crash. Biman is the flag carrier of Bangladesh.

 

At least five women and 12 men were being taken by ambulance to North Okkalapa Hospital at around 9pm last night.

 

The Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 aircraft took off from Bangladesh’s Dhaka-Srahjalal International Airport late yesterday afternoon before a bumpy landing at Yangon International Airport.

That's what I was expecting on Lao Airlines about eight years ago.  I was scared shitless [my wife was fine with it though she's Thai].  All sorts of weird manoeuvres on take off and landing.  

 

Seriously, never again.
