UPS flight 5X11, a McDonnell Douglas MD-11F cargo plane, taxied off the runway after landing at Almaty Airport, Kazakhstan.
The aircraft landed on runway 23R at 10:44 UTC. A person on the scene stated on his Facebook page that the aircraft was to follow the 'Follow me'-car that was waiting for the aircraft at the end of the runway. Instead of turning right to follow the car, the aircraft taxied straight ahead, off the paved end of the runway.
