News Summary: Myanma Airways grounds Chinese-made MA60s after 2nd landing mishap in month

Associated Press

DOWN TIME: Myanmar's state airline will stop flying its Chinese-made MA60 planes following a second accident with the turboprop in less than a month.

ROUGH LANDINGS: One of the planes swerved off the runway while landing in southeastern Myanmar, causing no injuries but damaging both propellers. Another shot past the end of a runway when its brakes reportedly failed. Two passengers suffered broken arms.

MORE PLANE PROBLEMS: In December a Fokker aircraft belonging to privately owned Air Bagan crash-landed in a rice field in Myanmar's Shan state, killing two and injuring 11.
