The aircraft was stopped within the airport areas designed to stop the aircraft under the circumstances.
Contrary to what is being published on some outlets, we want to assure the public that all was under control. The pilot was in control and did a great job.
Neither the passengers suffered any injury nor the aircraft suffered any damage.
Our company engineer is already in Bukoba to change the tyre and push back the aircraft on paved surface. It will resume operation once a thorough check has been done for any latent damage.
