Yep. I think the aircraft landed roughly according to this trajectory and ended up positioned facing around SSW as per this:

Seems to have been a rather short ground run as due to the down slope, auto brake medium and max reverse would normally be required to make the high speed exit on the north side of the runway beyond where the aircraft came to rest. Did the gear collapse as a result of the excursion into the grass or was it damaged on touch down causing the excursion ?

My red line is just a guestimate based on the video above and where the plane ended up.

i think more to the point: +TSRA Tempo 5000 TSRA CB OVD - The approach should never have been made in the first place.


Sort of has a resemblance to the recent Pegasus Air accident. Departed the runaway on landing at Trabzon.




Here's what one poster said about that incident.

The captain deploys the thrust reverser of the left engine and releases the right engine. Since he hadn't disconnect the auto throttle right engine goes to TOGA thrust. Aircraft starts to accelerate and skids off the runway from the left. Right engine saparates. All passengers evacuate the aircraft from the rear door. No smoke in the cabin no injuries.

If you look at the video that airbubba posted the thrust reverser has not been deployed. That video suggests the aircraft landed well to the left side of the runway already veering to the left.
