Bad Week for Keeping Your Twin Otter on the Pavement


915 - DHC-6-400 JA201D First Flying, Osaka


Two days after MASWings 9M-SSB departed the runway landing at Mukah, Sarawak, Japan's First Flying DHC-6-400 JA201D has experienced a runway excursion at Aguni, Japan.

The aircraft was arriving from Naha-Okinawa with 12 passengers and two crew onboard, when it departed the right side of the runway, impacted a drainage ditch and then collided with adjacent bushes. All passengers & crew received minor injuries and were transported to hospital, while the aircraft has reportedly received substantial damage.

First Flying had only begun scheduled Twin Otter operations earlier this month.
