A Biman Bangladesh Airlines DHC-8-400 suffered an accident during an attempted landing on runway 21 at Yangon-Mingaladon Airport, Myanmar.
The aircraft departed Dhaka-Shahjalal International Airport, Bangladesh, as Biman flight 060 about 15:15 hours local time with destination Yangon-Mingaladon Airport in Myanmar. Weather at Yangon was poor due to the presence of a thunderstorm in the area. Precise circumstances are unclear but the aircraft suffered an accident, causing it to come to rest off the runway. The aircraft fuselage broke in just behind the forward passenger door and just behind the rear service door. The undercarriage collapsed and the right hand wing also seems to have broken at the attachment point with the fuselage. There was no fire. All occupants survived, but eleven were reportedly injured.
