Aviation authorities are investigating why a Vietnam Airlines plane did not land in the middle of the runway at Hanoi’s Noi Bai airport.
The plane, VN1544, took off from Hue in central Vietnam at 7:50 p.NS.on Saturday and landed at Noi Bai Airport at 9pNS.NS.
However, the plane made a mistake when touching down, deviating from the center of the runway.
The probable cause has not been determined.Authorities have retrieved the plane's flight recorder and the results of the investigation are expected to be announced soon, the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam (CAAV) said.
A representative of Vietnam Airlines blamed heavy rain in Hanoi on Saturday night for obstructing the pilot's vision, causing the landing error.
However, all passengers landed safely, the representative emphasized.
Last May, a Vietnam Airlines plane was caught landing on an unfinished runway at the Cam Ranh Airport in the central province of Khanh Hoa.
The incident was considered "serious", second only to the aviation accident in Vietnam's fault classification, prompting the CAAV to open an investigation. Several people, including the American pilot and his Vietnamese copilot, were suspended.
Vietnam's aviation industry has experienced rapid development in recent years.The country served more than 53 million airline passengers in the first half of this year, up 14% from a year ago.
