KUCHING: A light aircraft carrying six passengers from Mukah, including a Sarawak minister, skidded at the Kuching International Airport upon landing on Sunday evening.

State Welfare, Community Wellbeing, Women, Family and Childhood Development Minister Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah was among the passengers on board the plane.
All passengers and crew escaped unhurt in the 6pm incident that forced the airport to suspend operations when the Hornbill Skyways Beechcraft 20 skidded to a spot approximately 500m from the airport's Fire and Rescue control tower.
