Tarom flight RO207, an ATR 42-500, suffered a runway excursion after landing at Chișinău International Airport in Moldova. There were no personal injuries.
After landing on runway 08 of Chișinău International Airport (KIV), the flight crew lost directional control and the aircraft exited the runway on the right side. It rolled on the grass for almost 90 m. The crew tried to return to the runway surface by using steering and ailerons and by applying a thrust differential of the engines.
When the aircraft returned to the runway surface, the main landing gear wheels hit the concrete support of a signal light situated on the runway edge. The aircraft performed an accentuated turn to the left, crossed the runway diagonally and exited on the opposite side (runway left side), stopping with the landing gear on the grass surface on the edge.
