By George Hatcher

On July 15, 2013, a UTair Boeing 737-524 en route from Moscow to Kiev ran off the runway on landing. It was misting at the time, leading to a slippery runway but was described as coming to a quick stop at 30-40 meters on level ground.

Firefighters took five minutes to arrive and ambulances five minutes after that but there was no fire and no injury reported.

None of the 77 passengers or crew sustained any injury. Passengers disembarked evacuated from the plane with fixed ladders rather than inflatable emergency ladders on to the soft ground, and were transported to the gate.
