We understand that the autobrakes were set wrong.

A Skylease Cargo Boeing 747-400, registration N908AR performing flight GG-4854 from Chicago O'Hare,IL (USA) to Halifax,NS (Canada) with 4 crew, landed on Halifax's runway 14 (length 2350 meters/7700 feet) at 05:06L (09:06Z) but was unable to stop before the end of the runway, overran the end of the runway, went down a slope and through the localizer antenna and came to a stop about 200 meters past the runway end. The four crew received minor injuries, the aircraft received substantial damage with all gear collapsed, engines #2 and #3 separated, engines #1 and #4 damaged and creases in the fuselage skin.

Do we know how many PSIs were dumped to the brakes?

All of them, of course.

The ATL comment that it was the second over run for the plane AND pilot was interesting.

Hey, Gabe! What's the English equivalent for "persevera y triunfarás"? :mrgreen:

Persevere and thou shall triumph.

Now, what would be the English equivalent for the synonym proverb "Con paciencia y con saliva"? :twisted:

With patience and saliva. (and confirmed by Google translate)

Must be some crazy Argentinean colloquialism.

I can see a certain gutter mentality, but even that requires some explaining.

Let's say that in involves a male elephant and a female ant.

You should ask there, this is a PC -except for 3WE- and family friendly forum... especially since Monchie failed to turn it into a shemale porn site as promised

For 747 watchers, here are additional details.


Crews take apart cargo plane that overshot Halifax runway 17 November

With lurid photographs and video.

Halifax airport returns to normal operations in the wake of Boeing 747 runway overshoot 9 December

The Halifax Stanfield International Airport has resumed normal operations a month after a plane overshot a runway, taking out navigational equipment and leaving a trail of debris in its wake.
* * *

Still to be replaced are some approach lighting towers, which help guide pilots to the runway, but airport spokeswoman Theresa Rath Spicer said they aren’t affecting operations.
* * *

She said approach lighting is only needed when landing in darkness or poor visibility, so in those conditions, the airport’s other three approaches are available.

Following the incident, the runway remained closed for nearly two weeks before reopening on Nov. 20, though without its full navigational capabilities.

Rath Spicer said the SkyLease Cargo plane also took out a large localizer antenna that was part of a navigational aid, but it has been replaced in the last couple of weeks.

She also said officials have removed and disposed of the contaminated soil and are working to backfill and grade the area in order to extend the runway-end safety area – a project that began before last month’s incident.

A runway-end safety area is a buffer strip that extends past the end of a runway. It gives planes extra stopping distance and can reduce damage and risk to passengers in the event of an overrun.

Transport Canada requires an extra 60 metres of prepared surface at the end of each runway, though it recommends an additional 90 metres for a total margin of 150 metres.

I find it disconcerting that one of the most important aspects of this story is being grossly underreported: the fact that a number of lobsters apparently are going to be able to celebrate one more Christmas than they otherwise would have.

That is a remarkably perceptive point and shows how badly "identify politics" has affected the media. Plenty of coverage of misogyny or relative genderism, but not one peep for lobster rights.

The sound of the digger arm as it crushes the skin of the aircraft is both satisfying and unpleasant. It's very much like the sound of the crushing of many aluminium cans (surprising that...)

This was also a somewhat underreported aspect of the slight malfunction that occurred aboard RMS Titanic. Said malfunction, while problematic for many of her passengers, was a veritable blessing for most (if not all) of the lobsters in her kitchen.
