Boeing 737 Slides Of Runway In Russia During Snowstorm

Reuters reports A Boeing 737-800 passenger jet operated by Russia’s NordStar carrier slid off a runway as it landed on Monday in a heavy snowstorm in the Russian city of Norilsk with 101 passengers and 6 crew members on board.

No one was hurt and the plane did not sustain any damage, the carrier said in a statement, adding that passengers were able to disembark from the plane themselves.

NordStar blamed the incident on the poor weather conditions.

On Friday night, a jetliner chartered by the U.S. military carrying 143 people slid into a shallow river while landing in Florida during a thunderstorm, injuring 22 people.
