The Embraer RJ145 belonging to BMI Regional is understood to have left the runway whilst taxiing after landing from Frankfurt at 11:36am.
Bristol Airport said none of the 25 passengers on-board flight BM1822 were injured and they were bussed to the terminal from the aircraft.
The airport warned there may be delays as the aircraft is recovered to a parking area.

Hey Hoss, can you possibly spare a cupful of your own perfection for us mere mortals?

bmi regional incident

Looking at the BRS website the current situation re affected flights is thus:

Departures: 34 left prior to the incident; 28 have been cancelled; 22 are showing 'next information'; 2 are showing 'check-in closes'; 1 is showing 'final boarding'; 1 is showing no information.

Arrivals: everything seemed to have arrived normally prior to the incident. After that 20 aircraft are shown as diverted; 26 cancelled; the remainder 'next information' or blank.

A lot of people will have had their Christmas plans ruined.

Shame that the US Navy don't run the flight deck, sorry RW at BRS. Its not much bigger than a large carrier! Perhaps EZY and FR could fund the hull cost of the 145 after it's been pushed over the side.

OK I know that its got to stay where it is now that the AAIB are on the way but you have to feel for the number all those that have been inconvenienced with little chance left to retrieve their Christmas plans.

If all this is 'just' a matter of having left the paved bit of a taxiway in LVP conditions, presumably getting the kite grass stuck in the process, surely it'd be possible to throughly record the incident scene by camera, sketch and notes, do a few measurements and get the thing moved within a couple of hours?

WHAT and not inconvenience several thousand people 2 days before Christmas.....

After all the report will probably run to at least two sides of A4

Runway now closed until 21:00!

Waiting patiently in the terminal for the 145 crew to just pop in and explain why are Christmas plans have just been trashed from going off-roading! Itís mayhem here and no idea if flights will occur or cancelled. Still the bars are still open - bless!!

If this was just a nose gear in the mud.....why is the airport still closed till 21:00? I thought they’d removed the aircraft much earlier. You’d think that with it being “frantic Friday” they’d pull out the stops to get things moving ASAP.

Feel sorry for the crew but, come on chaps! 8 hours to shift a commuter jet? Why are the AAIB involved? This is an incident, not an accident. Jobsworth?

Sure if that is what it is. BRS has form though. They had problems with braking efficiency on this runway which resulted in an AAIB report in 2009. Hopefully long since sorted and unrelated to today's events. While it needs
to be reported I can't see why a minor taxiway excursion would require an AAIB field investigation requiring the a/c to be left in situ. Will have to wait and see.

The next possibility is that AAIB will arrive, by car, and say they want it left in position until early morning light, when they can take photographs of the skid marks.

Just seen Nigel Scott, BRS business development director, (BRS currently has no CEO) on the local tv news. He said they can't move the aircraft until the AAIB investigators arrive to inspect it in situ and this is taking longer than expected.

The tv people said they've been told the earliest the airport will re-open is 9pm this evening.

For me, a low speed issue such as this with no injuries is not a major incident.
AAIB are not required to hold the recover process up. Why? Because 1000's of people are being disrupted unnecessarily. BRS will have competent managers to capture evidence post incident, BMI will have their process for capturing pilot reports and A/C data etc. All this can be reviewed by AAIB.

All the passengers, BRS and the airline are getting caught in the middle of ridiculous over regulation here!

Edit - Looking for a job. I have worked with their counterparts the RAIB. For an incident such as this, there is nothing that won't be covered through analysis of all the above I mentioned plus interviews with the pilots, cabin crew and atc. I appreciate everyone has a role to carry out, but there will be thousands of travel plans at stake here. Get those people moving!

In my experience, an event in which there are no injuries and which has easily explained causes and contributory factors, is quickly released by the AAIB Inspector.
Do we know if the A/C had fully decelerated prior to the excursion?
