Surprised that this has not been posted here yet.

One person injured and the aircraft's nose gear collapsed. Apparently the pax jumped out of emergency exits without following proper safety guidelines.

Acft was A9C-AG, one of the newer 320s in the GF fleet, delivered 2/2010 (LN 4188).

Quoting KFlyer (Thread starter):
Apparently the pax jumped out of emergency exits without following proper safety guidelines.

Other than making sure the slides were inflated, what other safety guidelines should they have followed?

I wonder if the plane can be salvaged, that nosewheel seems to have dug itself into the ground.

The usual alternative is that the front gear collapses, bringing the nose to the ground level.

I'm sure it can; apart from the nosegear, which can be replaced, perhaps a few panels on the underside needing a lick of paint and some panel beating, it should be ok; as mentioned above, it's pretty well brand new, so I don't think they will even think of scrapping it.

The article states that the "emergency ladder" did not deploy. Does the A320 have this? If so, it's news to me. Maybe Mr. Nair meant one of the chutes did not deploy. Contrary to the report, the picture seems to indicate that the slide that didn't deploy was that of the port wing exits. Kind of hard to tell...

And the long list of runway overruns in bad weather / poor conditions / at night continues. At least in this case there was room to end it on the grass..

So we add this one to
BW in GEO
AA in KIN
TA in TGU
TA in GUA
IB in UIO (or was it GYE?)
AF in YYZ
JJ in Sao Paolo
etc
etc

One all these show is that both manufacturers have managed to build strong aircraft that (although may end up in a write off) protect their pax.

Airports where at all humanly possible need to start looking at overrun protection as the largest area of safety concern.



When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

Why don't the airlines pay some of the costs of these advanced overrun protection areas, especially if they are the ones who are going to benefit. Having said that a flat surface of Wet Grass/Mud probably is the best surface of earth possible for an aircraft to overrun onto, works well in bringing the plane to a stop, not too fast or slow, acts like a soft sponge, soaks up quite a bit of energy.

true, but I wonder if it can be repaired at COK, I'm sure someone will manage since AI/IC has A320 overhaul facilities.

Thank God COK was built where it was and we didn't have a repeat of Mangalore

As you guessed, the answer is no.
I do not think that any ac has an "emergency ladder".
Built-in stairs are not emergency ones.
Another example of language mis-use.
From the picture, it looks that all emergency slides deployed.
