Jet Airways 9W2374, a Boeing 737-85R (WL), suffered a runway excursion at Goa-Dabolim Airport (GOI) in India.
Flight tracking data website Flightradar24 shows the aircraft taxiing from the platform onto the main runway at 04:59 hours local time. It back then tracked on the main runway towards the runway 26 threshold. After making a 180-degree turn to align with the runway, it continued turning to the right. It moved forward and entered downsloping grass, ran over the PAPI lights and continued until it came to rest at the side of an airport perimeter road, 220 m from the side of the runway an 7 meters below runway elevation. The nose landing gear collapsed and both engines contacted the ground. Photos from the scene show scrape marks on the left hand forward fuselage.
Twelve passengers suffered minor injuries during the evacuation.
