MUSCAT, Feb 11 (Reuters) - A Pakistan International Airlines
passenger plane with about 70 people on board crash-landed on
the runway of Oman's main airport in Muscat on Monday, forcing
the cancellation of all flights from the facility, a safety
officer said on Monday.
Ali Al Zuwaidi, flight safety director at Muscat
International Airport, said the pilot had reported no injuries
among the passengers or crew.
"A PIA aircraft crashed on the runway after its landing gear
collapsed," Zuwaidi told Reuters. "We had to close the airport
indefinitely until the investigation has been completed," he
Zuwaidi said the scheduled flight by the Boeing 737 aircraft
was arriving from Islamabad when it crash-landed.
Muscat airport is undergoing a $7.4 billon extension to
expand its runway and terminal building.
