A Copa Airlines Boeing 737-800 landed on Cordoba’s runway 18 at 03:14L (06:14Z) and turned off the runway into a high speed turn off taxiway C (about 1900 meters/6300 feet down the runway) but it became disabled before crossing the hold short line. The runway needed to be closed, as the aircraft was deemed as still on the runway.

The aircraft (HP-1821CMP) was performing flight CM-124 (dep Sep 2nd) from Panama City (Panama) to Cordoba,CD (Argentina).

Argentina’s JIAAC reported they have opened an investigation into the occurrence, the exact nature of which has yet to be determined and that had happened at 06:15 UTC. There were no injuries.

According to a photo that surfaced in Argentina the inboard right main tyre deflated.
