I can only see one approach using ADSB data

I was based at LBA for several years but managed to get posted away before I went off the runway. I never came THAT close to going off, but did ruin a set of tyres staying on the hard stuff.

Flightradar playback seems to show otherwise, but that could well be my interpretation…

One procedural approach. Look at the altitude data.

Looking at the photo of the wing in Post #4 it appears that the mud has been sprayed over the wing by the engine cowl and what ever is remaining of the LH MLG, which I presume departed the aircraft? Pure speculation here, on my part.

Presume MLG bogged down deep in the muck.
That'll need more than a quick jetwash!

Everything is still attached. I’m sure it will be fine.

From BBC News:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-67174117

"The TUI flight from Corfu "moved off the runway whilst landing" at Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) on Friday afternoon, the firm said."

That's one way of putting it

Thanks, Monkey-now seen.
Did think the profiles looked a bit odd.

Throw the reversers on and back her out. Might need to rock back and fourth on the clutch a bit first. What possibly could go wrong.
Then a quick trip and £10 in the local scratch and shine to get the of the muck off.

Where’s Joe Patroni when you need him? Seriously though looks like everyone lived to tell the tale and as long as they can dig it out without collapsing the gear then it’ll be right as rain. LBA in a 737 NG in crappy WX isn’t much fun!

Just out of curiosity, do you have any idea what did they do on arrival? I'm not familiar with Leeds.

Another 738 departs the paved surface. Add it to the long list of others. In 13 years at LGW, 738s were more often than not the ones that suffered big problems on landing - from the Turkish that buckled the right MLG and sat on stand 102 for weeks awaiting repair, to, more recently one of TUI's 73Ms that knackered its NLG, round about lockdown time 2020. Seen plenty of Airbus touch-and-go last minute go-arounds but none damaged or causing lots of disruption. Apart from the Titan with the excess biocide in the fuel.

LBA is not the same as LGW. Especially on a wet and windy day.

I flew the -200 and -300 and found them easy to land. 75 a bit heavy but still easy to lay down smoothly. Could place the A330 down with my eyes closed. Now back on the 73 but -800 and that extra length does make it tricker those final few ft. Will be interesting to have a go on the MAX10; the few videos out there of it shows a shallow flare and firm landing. Could hand fly a -200 like a PA28.

I'm fully aware of that, but even Wizz manage to plonk their A321s down without too many dramas. The 738 is a pig. Shame, Boeing used to make the best aircraft in the world.

Come on guys. Some sympathy. It could happen to anyone. There are those who have been off the runway and those who haven't YET. (I retired before the YET!)
