A cargo airplane overshot its runway on touchdown and ended up nose-down within the water of an adjoining lake earlier than daybreak on Saturday, forcing the closure of an airport servicing France’s southern Mediterranean coast. The three occupants of the Boeing 737, which was carrying air freight and got here to a cease amongst reeds, grass, and water on the airfield outdoors of Montpellier, had been reportedly saved unhurt. Authorities introduced that till the airplane has been moved, the airport is restricted to passenger and cargo flights.
Extra data on the incident is awaited.
