Runway excursion at Lord Howe Island

I heard on the bush telegraph that a Kingair allegedly had an excursion at Lord Howe Island within the last week, causing runway fodder and damage to some ground equipment. Speaking with a passenger, word is that they literally missed the runway.

Canít see this on the ATSB website. Would that be enough of an incident to trigger an ATSB entry?

G'day,
just wondering about those of you who use FS2020.
There is an add on for LHI scenery that is great(payware) & it also has a 'Landing Challenge".
THe LHI landing challenge is what I always start my sim session with - in RL I have landed there in an AC690B & a Navajho - both times were very interesting to say the least for somebody who was not ever checked into LHI - so left to learn it the hard way.
Obviously the 690 was the easier of the 2 to do an acceptable landing - never liked the Navajho in a x/wind - always seeemed to run out of aileron control troo soon.
In my retirement I am realy enjoying FS2020 - no bloody CASA - no annoying ATC - go anywhere & do anything - all great fun. The visuals are stunning but gotta have a good computer to really make it sing.
