DTS Incident Statement 11 April 2019


Auric Air Services Limited had an aircraft incident in Pemba on 10 April 2019 at about 1417hrs. After a normal approach, when the aircraft touched down, it suffered a tire puncture. In the course of rolling with the punctured tire, the aircraft was dragged to the right resulting in a minor runway excursion. Due to recent rains the ground on the runway strip was soft that made the aircraft come to rest in a slightly grooved state. The pilot handled the operation very efficiently. The approach was normal, there was no injury and the aircraft has suffered no damage apart from the burst tire.

 The relevant authorities were notified of the incident immediately.
