I'm almost halfway and must say this report shows some interesting facts!

Thanks! I'm gonna print this one out. I just wish the Columbia report would come out, that one should be interesting too.

Just starting it myself now.

The key fact seems to be that the runway stopped before the airplane did!

The main causes seem to be:
1) The decision to abort 12 kts after V1
2) The takeoff having started from an intersection, although the takeoff parameters were calculated based on the whole runway length

The captain had been involved in a rejected takeoff incident previously when the Belgian report suggested might have influenced his decision.

One has to feel very sorry for the crew; particularly the captain (who was 59) finishing his career like this.

Also the decision to not use reverse thrust on the RTO in spite of company procedure
stating that reverse thrust should be used in such a situation.

Anyone catch the comment re: EMAS?

"Computation showed that N704CK, if it had not deviated to the right
would have stopped before the first ditch, in the case runway 20 was
equipped with an EMAS RESA"
.

Wonder if we'll be seeing that in those EMAS sales brochures....?  Wink

Also noteworthy was the type of bird involved--a falcon. Certainly not the largest, nor the smallest...
