MIAMI – A Cessna T303 Crusader overran the runway and crossed a road amid snowy winter conditions at Annecy Mont Blanc Airport (NCY) on Friday.
The aircraft, with registration HB-LUX, appears to have departed from Berre/Marignane Airport (LFTB) in the south of France. Snowfall arrived in the early afternoon, potentially complicating the landing but an investigation is ongoing.
No Life-Threatening Injuries

Around 29 firefighters were involved following the accident, highlighting the fact that runway overruns can affect aircraft large and small.
