Plane crash drill at Oman airport

Muscat: If you hear of a plane crash at Salalah Airport on Wednesday, don't worry. Officials will be staging a mock plane crash outside the airport boundaries.

Oman Airports Management Company (OAMC) will be conducting a response exercise, simulating an aircraft crash outside the airport boundaries, in collaboration with Royal Oman Police (Dhofar Governorate ROP) and Public Authority of Civil Defence and Ambulance, Sultan Qaboos Hospital, Military Hospital and Salalah Air Force.

In an announcement, OAMC said the emergency exercise will take place on Wednesday in between 8:00 am and 12:00 pm. “Ambulances may be seen on the way from hospitals and to the exercise site during the exercise,” the OAMC said.
