I'm surprised no one has posted yet... but an B737 from Copa apparently came out of the runway when it was landing at UIO today around 17:30.

Only information in Spanish so far. No causalities, but status of airplane unknown.

Here is a link to the story, so far no pictures

Thanks. I gotta check on my buddy's g/f, as she travels between UIO and Guayquil weekly.

Well, if we take the article data for true, maybe the config of this 737, with "capacity for 300 passengers" could be a factor      

Glad to see no one was seriously injured... and the aircraft itself looks in a fair condition, maybe with the nose gear and the engines with some damage, but nothing damaged beyond economical repair...

Was it a CM from CM PTY or P5 BOG?
CM fleet is so tightly in use that I wonder where does CM going get a replacement aircraft, specially December-January high season just days away.
This could be a good excuse to rescue 2-3 fairly new B737 800/700/600 from being scrapped.

What else has over run since the A340-600 a couple of years ago?

The detail that worry me, is that it isn't the first time something like that happens UIO.

Is UIO a particularly difficult airport for landing? I have heard of a few aircraft runway incidents in the past few years.

It is very high, which means that aircraft land at significantly higher speed than they would normally (i.e. at sea level); this obviously means that if it's wet or if they landed too far along the runway (as happened with the Iberia A346), they run a greater risk of running off the end.

the Iberia A346 was in NOV 2007 then an Fokker 28 from local airline Icaro overran in September 2008, and then the Embraer in NOV 2011

The Iberia A346 touched down just 200 meters after the threshold so the late touchdown thing is false.

It was the extremely hard touchdown which caused the multiple-tyre burst and damaged the landing gear sensors, thus disabling thurst reverse, auto brake, and greatly reducing the aircraft's braking capabilities upon manual brake action being selected by the crew.

Plus, the aircraft was very close to its MLW, making things even more difficult for the pilots.

Did this happen in the new UIO or is the old airport still in function?

I belief it's at the old airport, the new one is to begin operations in 2013 (if I recall correctly)

From the photograph it looks like it was a B737-800.

It's rated as one of the most dangerous major airports in the world. Fortunately it's due to close (in February if not mistaken) when the new airport, long overdue, opens. It was originally planned to be completed in 2011.
