After taking off for Venice the pilot reported smoke in the cabin and returned to MUC. Reportedly it was smoke out of the broken right engine that has been sucked into the cabin by the air conditioning system. After landing the plane suddenly ran off the runway into the field where after a view leaps the nose landing gear collapsed. The picture shows evacuation in progress seconds after the plane stopped. Today is the 20th anniversary of MUC airport by the way.
