Smooth reporting from Mangalore

Quote from BBC News:

The Air India Express flight carrying 183 passengers veered off the runway, but the pilot managed to steer it into a muddy patch of grass.
Airline officials have blamed "tailwind and a wet runway" for the incident.

Blame where blame is due after all...

Excellent! But really, it's not so much worse than some reporting I've seen in some so-called "first world" countries . . .

Forgive me please if I've misunderstood, but what I took away from the report was that, for whattever reason, the plane landed long, wasn't going to stop on the runway, and, Mangalore being a table top runway. the pilot decided it was better to go off the side and stop in the mud than go off the cliff at the end. Have I misunderstood?

Don't forget Magalore's - umm - history with 738 overruns on 24: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_In...ess_Flight_812

Not a bad place to steer into the mud if you roll over the piano keys still carrying excess speed. There's a "sand EMAS" pit, but it didn't help. Beyond that, the first step is a dilly!

T/R also inop ?

Difficult to see in the video because its partially obscured by the slats but the T/R cowl appears to not have deployed until the end but then closes before the a/c comes to a shuddering stop.

" The license of the captain was suspended for a year following the date of the occurrence."
