Nothing on the Monarch twitter feed yet, hope there's no injuries, has anyone got the weather in Birmingham? This hasn't been the first issue on landing with them there either, remember a few years ago there was that flight that bumped down the runway and made it into the press

Rather dramatic?! In my opinion amazingly exaggerated :P

I landed myself in BHX many times in the 737, the runway is not the shortest, but as well not the longest and when the runway is wet, the landing distance increases. So maybe they touched down too late, too fast and were unable to stop in time.

True enough!

Here is an image that gives a better idea of where the aircraft has ended up.

Looks like the airplane is intact. But of course unable to get out there on its own.

Any infos if BHX is closed and the other crossing runway is even shorter.

^BHX is closed to flights in and out.. 9 flights have diverted to East Midlands, Apparently the aircraft went off while taxiing and not during landing.

06/24 was closed a few years ago, it is now Taxiway T on the east side and L on the west side.

Like you say, not the shortest runway but the displaced threshold and slight downslope on 33 make all the difference, especially in the wet. The normal touchdown point leaves an LDA of approximately 2,300m.

I can't see how they could have gone off while 'taxiing', the only reason you would be at the north part of the airfield facing that way is after landing.

At least there are no injuries - except to Monarchs PR department. This is the second incident that they have had with a leased aircraft in the past few months.

That was a quote from a BBC news guy reading his notes so as far as media getting aviation things correctly I wouldnt say that was cast in stone heh.

That seems quite a bit off the runway to have been during taxiing. I assume it would have been a steering failure?

24.5 years old according to airfleets.net. I've worked with Aurela and never really had any issues. Think this is one of those incidents where it could've happened to any airline. Wonder how Monarch will handle it with it being a chartered flight.

That should be enough, even when raining. But we don't know what happened yet.

BHX appears to have opened again now because at 1640L flightradar has EI-DEF on final approach to BHX with Flight EI272 from DUB

Possibly, Might be something to it though. Since Monarch has been using Aurela/Air Explore they have already had 3 incidents since July. 2 of them listed in AV herald the other was a long tech delay for days.
