Southwest Flight Skids Off Runway At Burbank Airport; FAA Initiates Groundstop

Source: CBS Los Angeles

BURBANK (CBSLA) — A Southwest Airlines flight arriving at Burbank Airport from Oakland skidded off the runway after landing Thursday morning.

The jet was stopped by the airport’s Engineered Material Arresting System, which is designed to stop an aircraft that goes off the end of a runway.

The flight had 117 passengers on board.

Shortly after the incident, passengers were calmly seen disembarking the aircraft via an emergency slide.

Heavy rains are reportedly the cause.

1. Better than going into the Shell station across the street

like they did a few years ago. Glad to hear nobody was injured. Still my favorite SoCal airport.

2. The intelligence of the human species never ceases to amaze me.

Of course you would put a gas station basically at the end of an airport runway...makes perfect sense!

12. There was a chinese restaraunt over the wing.

That and the gas station were removed.

I know this system works, it has at Midway

We do learn.

3. This was always my fear when flying into National Airport. I always worried that I would end up in

the Potomac.

7. You would have loved Kai Tak Airport in Hong Kong...

If you overshot the runway you'd end up in the bay. If you undershot it.....

15. I used to fly in there a lot. Always amusing to check out Mrs Wong's laundry drying on the roof.

17. Not that much different then the San Diego Airport

A few degrees to the left and you land in downtown or the bay...over shoot it and you are in the Marine Corp Recruit Depot. A few degrees to the right and you land on Interstate 5 or residential/commercial areas.

18. Downtown San Diego is close to the runway, but the density doesn't compare...

Flying into Kai Tak required special pilot training because of all the required turns through the hills Kowloon is built on.

20. I have heard that, yes.

San Diego has only 1 runway and it is the 3rd busiest in the world, even with no departures between 11:30pm & 6:30am.

11. I suspect they didn't have enough runway to be legal

Even on a good day a 737 needs around 5,000’ of runway to land. They would be required to factor in a multiplier for the wet conditions and for carrying passengers in a scheduled airline operation. The runway is only 5,800’ long.

Not a good time to buy Southwest stock.

6. Remember when SW airlines slid off the runway at Midway

in Chicago and killed some people in their cars at an intersection? Midway is literally in the middle of a Chicago neighborhood and has some of the shortest commercial runways in the biz.

14. Looks like the EMAS system stopped this over run.

Something that was subsequently installed at Miday - too late for the kid killed while sitting at a light in traffic.


https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engineered_materials_arrestor_system

n engineered materials arrestor system, engineered materials arresting system (EMAS), or arrester bed[1] is a bed of engineered materials built at the end of a runway to reduce the severity of the consequences of a runway excursion. Engineered materials are defined in FAA Advisory Circular No 150/5220-22B as "high energy absorbing materials of selected strength, which will reliably and predictably crush under the weight of an aircraft". While the current technology involves lightweight, crushable concrete blocks, any material that has been approved to meet the FAA Advisory Circular can be used for an EMAS. The purpose of an EMAS is to stop an aircraft overrun with no human injury and minimal aircraft damage. The aircraft is slowed by the loss of energy required to crush the EMAS material. An EMAS is similar in concept to the runaway truck ramp made of gravel or sand. It is intended to stop an aircraft that has overshot a runway when there is an insufficient free space for a standard runway safety area (RSA). Multiple patents have been issued on the construction and design on the materials and process.

10. So even the pilots

in Los Angeles don't know how to drive in the rain.
