A Beechcraft B200GT King Air 250, transporting remdesivir injections meant for critical COVID-19 patients, suffered an accident during an attempted landing on runway 06R at Gwalior Airport (GWL/VIGR), Madhya Pradesh. All three occupants were injured.
Footage from the scene suggests that the aircraft hit the barrier nets that were positioned short of the runway 06 threshold.
The undercarriage collapsed, both props separated and the nose suffered extensive damage.
Since Gwalior is a joint military/civil airport, the barrier nets were used to prevent military jets from overrunning runway 24L.
