BERLIN – An airline says one of its planes, which was carrying 62 people, made an emergency landing at Germany's Munich airport where it slid off the runway. One passenger was slightly injured.
Air Dolomiti, a subsidiary of German carrier Lufthansa, says the twin turboprop plane turned around shortly after take-off Thursday in Munich as smoke billowed through cabin and cockpit, German news agency dapd reported.
Munich airport said the plane, bound for Venice, Italy, experienced engine problems during the emergency landing and slid off the runway, coming to a halt in the grass nearby.
All passengers were able to disembark unassisted through a door that stood only about 1 meter (1 yard) above the grass.
The incident's cause was under investigation. It spurred significant delays at the Munich airport.
