Garuda Indonesia Airbus A330 stuck in mud after landing
A Garuda Indonesia Airbus A330 became stuck in the mud off a runway after landing in Sultan Hasanuddin International Airport (UPG) in Makassar, Indonesia.
The Airbus A330 operated flight GA610 from Soekarno Hatta International Airport (CGK) in Jakarta, Indonesia. The Garuda Indonesia wide-body landed at the airport at 5:07 PM local time (UTC +8).
