Emergency Landing of Royal Malaysian Air Force Plane at Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport

A plane from the Royal Malaysian Air Force skidded across a runway during an emergency landing. The Beechcraft B200T, which was conducting a training flight, took off from Subang Air Base on October 16, 2023, just before 11:30 a.m. local time. 


It was forced to make an emergency landing at Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (SZB) around 1 p.m. Videos from the scene show the aircraft sliding on the runway with its left wing touching the ground, eventually coming to a halt on a grassy patch. 


The plane belonged to the No 16 squadron and had four crew members onboard, all of whom were safe and unharmed. The Air Force will conduct an investigation to determine the cause of the incident. The runway was temporarily closed by Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) upon request from the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) to facilitate the removal of the aircraft.
