Kerala plane crash

Kerala plane crash

Kerala plane crash

(OP)
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-536998...

Slightly confused as you might expect but tried to land twice in a monsoon, apparently landing on 10 runway instead of 28 as originally required and ran off the end and down a steep incline at the end of the runway.

More info.
Apparently landed downwind and touched down 100m along the 2800m runway.

Pilots and 16 more dead, many injured.

RE: Kerala plane crash

This happens every year, I think there was 5 or 6 last year.

In the western world we have retard pits at the end of the runway to catch the plane.

its not a long runway for a 60 ton aircraft with standing water when you touch down with a head wind at the right place. Never mind 1 km in leaving 1800m left and a 10 knot tailwind.

Nobody ever seem to learn though.
