[Aviation incidents] IndiGo ATR-72 tire burst on landing – Two Aeromar ATR-42 seriously damaged in ground collision – Linea Aerea Amaszonas Metroliner overran runway


Next to the ground collision with Germania and El Al at Tel Aviv airport another series of aviation incidents occurred this week, all reported by Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre (JACDEC).

2 different incidents involved ATR aircraft: in India an IndiGo ATR-72 (VT-IYD) suffered a tire burst on landing runway 09R at Hyderabad Airport. All 76 on board remained unhurt.

Two ATR-42 (XA-UAV) + ATR-72 (XA-UYY) of Mexican regional Aeromar sustained serious damage in a ground collision on the maintenance ramp at Mexico City Intl Airport (MMMX). It appears the ATR-72 was doing engine runs when it jumped the chocks.

In Bolivia an Linea Aerea Amaszonas SA-227 Metroliner (CP-2459) experienced runway overrun on landing at Riberalta Airport (SLRI), 13 passengers on board. The aircraft came to rest on the grassy, downsloping terrain adjacent to a public road about 100 meters further.
