F100 - Overshot Runway at Newman Airport (9/1/2020)

For those who may have had family/friends on this flight, this was on Twitter a short time ago "Newman Airport this morning, looks like the plane failed to stop, this is at the end of the runway"

Aircraft is an F100, aircraft registration is VH-NHY, flight number is QF2650 (NWK2650). Flight was Perth to Newman.

That closure will really screw around what is usually a big crew change day for the mines

ABC Report

Somebody said to me once that the ABC rarely reports on anything that might paint Qantas in a bad light, and that they jump at opportunities to report on pretty pictures etc taken from a Qantas flight. I dismissed them as being paranoid.
Given that at the time of writing this, a potential aircraft accident wasnít worthy of an article from the ABC, I wonder if perhaps they were right.

You might be on to something. Compare it to the coverage of this incident https://thewest.com.au/news/perth/co...ng-b881276619z

Still nothing in The West at the moment. It would be extraordinary if an airline could suppress a story such as this.

I guess GT is in the clear regarding his CL membership.

Tyres don’t have infinite grip. We’re used to having all the grip available to retard the aircraft, but when a strong crosswind prevails during the rollout, a good amount of the grip is being used just to prevent the aircraft from drifting sideways.

So, there is reduced grip available to retard the aircraft. Wet runways, as we know, further reduce the grip.

Maybe a number of reasons- queue the usual suspects: Press on; Land long; Speed above the bug, Weather; Runway surface; Braking/ Reverser technique [OMG they're stowed!]; Mechanical failure or,,,, GT spilling his machiatto in the Captain's Lounge.
Guess we'll find out.
Good Luck to the Crew, could have been better, but could have been worse.

Interesting that it looks like the crew put everything away after they came to a stop and then shut down. Everything looks nice and orderly.

But Iím no expert

I just feel really bad for the crew. It would have been a sleepless night last night with all sorts of demons present.

I would say get in touch with your EAP as soon as possible, or via the union services which is when your fees become the best investment in your career.

We are all human and fallible. But it breaks my heart to see the roo off the end of a runway.

But for the grace.

They could have popped the slides and disembarked onto a wing full of spoilers and turning engines I guess.
