The thunderstorm that hit Kyiv Thursday night disrupted flights at both of the city’s airports

The thunderstorm that hit Kyiv Thursday night disrupted flights at both of the city’s airports. Flights were suspended for three hours at Kyiv Sikorsky after a violent wind gust hit a Bravo flight landing from Antalya, forcing it onto a muddy side strip. There, a passenger told Interfax-Ukraine, the McDonnell Douglas MD-83 jet ‘sat on its belly.” At Boryspil, at the same time – 20:40 – a UIA Boeing 767-300ER destined for Tel Aviv encountered extreme turbulence and returned to the airport for an emergency landing. No one was injured in either incident.
