Petro Air Plane Overshoots Runway

Libya Herald reports that an electrical failure caused a Petro Air plane to overshoot the runway at Tripoli’s Mitiga Airport when landing after a test flight on Friday.

The Brazilian-made Embraer ERJ-170 had two crew on board but no injuries or damage to the aircraft were reported.

The aircraft is used to transport workers and equipment to and from remote oil locations.

Petro Air was formed by a merger of four National Oil Corporation (NOC)-based aviation departments: Sirte, Waha, Zuetina and Veba. It has a fleet of twelve aircraft, including three Embraers.
