By George Hatcher

A Tiger Airways Philippines Airbus A320 was taxiing on the runway at Kalibo International Airport in the Philippines when the plane got stuck on the runway. Passengers were provided accommodations at a local hotel as they waited for the situation to be amended. A dozen flights had to be rerouted, in the meantime.

50 passengers were aboard the flight bound for Singapore when it got mired while making a 180-degree turn at the end of Runway 05.

Airport traffic was halted as the situation was resolved. The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines announced that the front wheel “stuck on a soft spot and got stalled while making a 180-degree turn at the end of Runway 05.”

The Aircraft Accident Investigation & Inquiry Board is investigating.
