An UPS Airlines MD-11 (reg. N271UP) from Seoul skidded off end of runway 23R after landing Almaty Airport, Kazakhstan at 16:40 local time.

For a reason still unknown, instead of following green lights and the “follow me”, the aircraft didn’t turn right but continued to move 20 meters into snow and red lights at the end of runway.

The plane didn’t suffer any damage and will be pulled back on tarmac.
