The aircraft stopped about 70 metres from the runway, but has since been towed to a safe area for examination, as part of the investigation.

Safety is the most important priority for Air Force operations. Air Force aircraft are serviced and flown under a very strict and controlled airworthiness and safety system. All aircraft are under constant surveillance to ensure that they maintain the highest standards.

There is minimal impact to operations in the Middle East Area of Operations (MEAO).
