A Gulfstream G200, owned by SW Business Aviation of Azerbaijan, has come off the runway at a Moscow airport.

According to images posted on social media, 2008-build G200 MSN 189 / 4K-AZ88 overran the runway whilst landing at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport on February 26.

The aircraft was operating a flight from Baku, Azerbaijan at the time of the incident, with two crew and three passengers on board.

Nobody on the aircraft at the time of the accident was injured.

Pictures appear to show that the undercarriage was sheered off during the incident, with the aircraft coming to rest on its belly.

Webcam footage posted on the Aeronews Facebook page shows the aircraft sliding at a 45-degree angle down part of the runway, before coming off the runway and into an area of snow.

One of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo’s two parallel runways was closed for a short time whilst recovery of the Gulfstream took place.

Video posted on the YouTube shows the recovery underway, with a crane lifting the aircraft away from its resting place.
