Man City superstar unhurt in incident where airplane came off runway

Nothing seems to be going right for Manchester City superstar Vincent Kompany lately. Injury-after-injury has kept him from helping his club in crucial games, but now his bad luck appears to be following him into one of the worst possible places: airplanes.

According to ESPN FC, Kompany was on board a plane that came off the runway at the Norwich Airport over the weekend. The Man City and Belgium defender was not hurt after the plane had issues taking off. Kompany went to watch the Citizens take down Norwich City in a 3-0 FA Cup win in the third round and tried to take a charter plane home.

In a statement from the airport, it was revealed that the airport was remaining open to certain traffic and reported the incident to the necessary authorities.

“The airport remained open to helicopter traffic. The Air Accident Investigation Branch has been informed, which is standard practice,” the statement to the BBC read.

Per Phil Brockwell, of Centreline Air, in an interview with the Eastern Daily Press, the reasons for the plane veering off were unclear, but the speed of the flight was low.

“It was at a fairly low speed of its departure, at which point it veered off the runway, for reasons for which we have some guesses.”
