  • Yesterday, 12 July, this @skyexpressgreece ATR42-500 (SX-FOR, msn 524), operating flight GQ405 from Naxos to Athens, with 46 passengers and three crew, was back tracking runway 36 for departure at about 17:20hrs local time, when the aircraft went off the paved surface of the runway and came to a stop with the main gear in a ditch.

The tail hit the ground, the lower fuselage below the propellers rested on the runway edge and the nose gear on the runway surface. There were no injuries, the aircraft sustained substantial damage.

Passengers on previous flights reported it was common to backtrack the runway, line up for departure and then roll back using back power to get as much runway available for take-off as possible.
