An AirAsia Airbus A320 plane reportedly overshot the runway at Kalibo International Airport near Boracay, a popular Philippines tourist destination, on Tuesday evening. Posts on social media showed emergency slides being deployed from the plane, which appeared to have come to a halt on a grassy field, the Straits Times reported. Passengers said the plane came to “a very abrupt stop.” No injuries were reported. The flight was scheduled to depart at around 4.15pm on Tuesday, but was delayed by almost two hours due to bad weather, according to the paper.
