The 727 (Heavylift?) veered off rwy 01 and came to rest about halfway down.

Rwy 14 now in use for all ops.

No further details yet.

From Ch 10 News footage it looks to be still on all wheels, but bogged well off the runway.

It could be there for a while.

Runway mishap causes Brisbane Airport chaos

The main runway at the Brisbane Airport is closed after a freight aeroplane ran off the end.

The mishap happened around 4:00pm AEST when a Boeing 727 heavy lift freight liner got stuck in grass at the end of the runway.

Most domestic and international flights are currently unable to land and are flying in a holding position until the freight plane is removed.

Jim Carden, from the Brisbane Airport, says the flights will be redirected to the Gold Coast if the plane cannot be removed quickly.

"We're endeavouring as a priority to remove the plane from the runway and to resume normal operations as soon as we can," he said.

B105 (Yes, I get it here in the desert!!) reckons it could have been a result of strong x-wind and a wet runway.
Comments?

Channel 7 just crossed live to their chopper over BNE and the main tyres have sunk into the ground about 6 inches. The report said that the airport firies are trying to dig out around the front of the wheels and using the aircraft engine thrust to move the aircraft.

Passengers delayed by plane mishap
25 jan 05

HUNDREDS of passengers were delayed after a cargo plane mishap closed the main runway at Brisbane domestic airport today.

The Boeing 727, on a flight from Cairns, ran off the main runway shortly after 4pm (AEST), said Brisbane Aircraft Corporation (BAC) spokesman Jim Carden.

The plane with a crew of three on board, was operated by HeavyLift Cargo Airlines and was empty when it landed.

It was believed the aircraft had been due to take a load of cargo to the Solomon Islands tomorrow.

"We understand, but it is not confirmed, they had a problem with the front nose wheel at relatively low speed, which caused them to go off to the side of the runway," Mr Carden said.

Planes smaller than a Boeing 737 were being allowed to land on the shorter cross-runway but larger aircraft were being diverted to Coolangatta on the Gold Coast or to Sydney.

Several hundred passengers waited at the airport as the plane was manoeuvred from the runway and taxied to another area early this evening.

The backlog of passengers was expected to be cleared tonight.

Executives of HeavyLift were being sought for comment.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) was investigating.

Nit-picky I know but where the press/media and aircraft are concerned, one can't let these things lie ....

How do they know it was the "front nose wheel", as opposed to the rear nose wheel?

I don't know how much digging they had to do but they drove it out under own power.

Is it true that the crew were ground testing the aircraft after it had been in for maintenaince having an 'All terrain' traction system installed. Specially designed for those rough strips that one so often encounters in the third world. "Ladies and Gentleman todays flight is brought to you by the new Range Rover Discovery......"

They used a heavy duty tow truck to unstick it, rumour has it, because qantas wouldn't lend BAC a tug. Any truth to it? (I thought a tug would have been no good on grass any way)

Having had the misforture (fueled by stupidity) of trying to cut across grass in a TAA Toyota tug after towing a Cessna that collaped nose gear at Wynyard, and subsequently sinking to the axles and need the fireys to drag me out, I can understand why QF did not offer a tug to do the job.

The main problem is the extra weight added to the vehicle to allow effective braking with the weight of an aeroplane behind it.

The toyota tug was rated up to DC9, and the rear was solid cast iron. QF Hobart (or whatever brand they are now) tugs would be similar I am sure.

Best

OK guys,the real story:wet runway, gusting x-wind,on landing roll NWS cable breaks,NW off-centre,steering rams now locked due no follow-up,spear off runway onto grass.Attempt made to move a/c under own power by crew unsuccesful.Engineers from Jetcare attend scene,dig sloping trenches in front of gears,lay down steel plates,steering disconnected, and a/c moved out under own power to runway and then towed away. All that done in 2.5 hours and no input from the Rat! A/c currently having cables changed and being inspected for damage. Cheers!
