On different continents, two Embraer ERJ jets slipped after landing on the same Thursday

Aircraft from Piedmont Airlines and Airlink ended up suffering runway and taxiway excursions in different situations

For different reasons, two Embraer ERJ regional jets ended up leaving the limits of the runway and taxiway on the same January 18th.

In Mozambique, an ERJ-135LR from the South African airline AirLink suffered a runway excursion after landing at Pemba Airport, coming from Johannesburg.

The aircraft, with 35 occupants, ended up stuck in the mud, but the passengers managed to leave it safely.

Hours later, a Piedmont Airlines ERJ-145LR, working for American Eagle, had just landed at Rochester International Airport in New York when it slid off the taxiway.

A video on social media shows the aircraft in snow, which may have contributed to the incident. The N922AE jet had 53 people on board and there were no injuries.

The incident with the AirLink ERJ-135LR ZS-SJX, however, occurred in hot weather, but a video taken by a passenger shows that it had rained and the runway was wet.
