PICS: Plane crashes on to road after overshooting airport runway

05 August 2016, 13:56

Milan - A DHL cargo plane skidded off a runway at Bergamo's Orio al Serio airport overnight, its nose busting through a perimeter fence and onto a provincial highway. Officials said no one was injured.

The low-cost airline and cargo hub near Milan was closed for about 2.5 hours early on Friday, creating delays during the busy summer travel period. Some flights were rerouted to Milan's Malpensa airport.

Television images showed the plane's nose partially blocking a roadway flanked by emergency vehicles.

Italian aviation officials said the Boeing 737 400 overshot the runway on landing from Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport just after 04:00. The pilot and first officer were both uninjured. The cause was under investigation.

The Bergamo airport is Italy's third-busiest, with over 10 million passengers last year.

Pictures circulating on Twitter showed the aircraft lodged onto a road at the end of the runway:
