Taxyway Excursion. Big drama I think not.

But it does beg a question. They managed to keep it on a 45m wide runway, but lost it on a narrower // taxiway. It looks to be tilted left; does that suggest an undercarriage problem, or have the boggies sunk in grass? Steering problems? It is a slight drama because it shouldn't happen. Straight bit of tarmac, no corners, no ice; so what happened?

They took taxiway/ runway exit 'A' and turning to the parallel (90 degree right), it looks like, they over cooked it on the wet surface - skid marks lead the way.
Aircraft is leaning due to unlevel grass.
Easy to criticise, but as with all incidents... "it'd never happen to me" if you asked them 20 seconds before.

Clamchowder, you need to edit your post and change Taxiway A to Taxiway B.

They were in the turn from Taxiway B onto Taxiway A when they overshot the turn.

Slippery when wet, new tarmac, a bit of excess speed... voila

I've heard random stories when P2F have "forgot" to press rudder cut-off button to do the rudder check, so no suprise there...

Yep, especially from Greenlights, who obviously has a grudge against Small Planet. Turned down by them maybe?

HotelTango, nice try, but sorry, if you had read my previous post you would know that I have a seat, and I've never paid for working for the record.
