The aircraft touched down on runway 23 but ran off the right side of the runway, into the grass. The right hand undercarriage collapsed and the plane sank a meter-deep into the mud, causing the severe damage to the right hand wing and the separation of the nr. 3 engine. The airplane came to rest 7300 ft from the runway 23 threshold. Chittagong has a single runway (05/23) which measures 9646 x 150 feet.
