Narrative:
An ATR-72-500, XY-AIT, received substantial damage in a runway excursion accident at Thandwe Airport (SNW), Myanmar. All passengers and crew onboard escaped uninjured.
The ATR was cleared to land at runway 20 at Thandwe. It touched down 1500 feet from the threshold and bounced about four times before veering off the left side of the runway into a small sand pile near the end of the runway. The ends of the blades of the starboard propeller sheered off upon striking the sand pile and penetrated the fuselage. The nose landing gear collapsed. There was no fire.
Thandwe Airport has a single (02/20) bituminous runway, measuring 5502 x 102 feet.

Classification:
