Descripción:
An Airbus A320-211, registered TS-IMB, sustained substantial damage in a landing accident at Tunis-Carthage Airport (TUN), Tunisia when the nose landing gear collapsed.
Tunis Air Flight TU712 departed Casablanca-Mohamed V Airport (CMN), Morocco on a scheduled service to Tunis-Carthage Airport (TUN). The airplane landed in gusty wind conditions on runway 19 when a rain squall was passing the airport.
At about 1600 meters from the threshold, the aircraft veered to the right and went off the runway 200 meters further on. The plane then turned left and travelled a distance of about 114 meters in the grass. It then crossed runway 11/29 perpendicularly and travelled another 130 meters in the grass parallel with runway 19 before entering taxiway F were it came to rest with a collapsed nose landing gear.
