An Airbus A310 of Iranian Mahan Airlines has crashed guardrails, as it failed to stop while getting its parking position, at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport, on Dec. 24.
The front landing gear of the Iranian plane, which has departed from Tehran, as well as a terminal coach at the apron placed behind the guardrail were damaged after the incident.
The passanger aircraft was steered to the newly installed S6 parking position by officers, after having landed at the Ataturk Airport. However, the aircraft landed ahead of the parking position and managed to stop after crashing the guardrails in 30 meters distance to the position.
The State Airports Administration deployed rescue teams and fire crews at the scene, while front landing gears of the plane were destroyed. An investigation regarding the incident has been launched.
