Kenya Airways Runs off Runway in Dar es Salaam

A Kenya Airways Embraer 190 has just run off the runway at HTDA while landing in a heavy rainstorm. It looks as if the passengers were evacuated using the slides!

Please tell me I'm mistaken, but that looks awfully like someone evacuating their bag!

Only in Africa

Question New Version of an Airstair?

I see they deployed an 'air stair' - was this to protect the Slide?

Right Engine Cowling Damage

One can see some damage on the bottom lip of the right engine cowling.

@Pohm 1, not only in Africa, after the Asiana accident, there were pictures doing rounds of pax who went down the escape slides with their carry ons.

And why would the CVR be "accidentally erased?"

Its not a question of erasing.

The CVR records a 2 hour loop, if there is a reportable incident it must be disconnected and tagged for removal on landing.
If it is not disconnected it will overwrite the important recordings.

Disconnecting the CVR is a non-standard item performed ONLY when there is a reportable incident so it can easily be overlooked in the general confusion which follows an incident.

CVR issue

Quite right Ancient Greek! It has also been "accidentally erased" by pilots...to save face and more!

The picture showing the ladder is taken some time after the evacuation.

The chap in the hi viz vest is a ground handling agent getting bags off. He's put a ladder on because otherwise it's quite tricky to walk up the slide.

Slide???

Why not disengage the slide then stand the ladder in half extension against the aircraft. The slide has to be removed anyway.

Indeed, but I'd think it's most likely the agent doesn't know how to disconnect a slide or doesn't feel he has the authority, the crew are likely long since gone off for debrief. Either way it's nowhere near as daft as believing that the photo is a representation of an actual evacuation.

What happened to the Kenya Airways Embraer which ran off the runway in Dar es Salaam in April? Has it been repaired yet or id 'The Pride of Africa's' pride a little dented?
