I was reading a thread about that Southwest 737 that almost hit a gas station after it landed in Burbank and couldn't stop.

I was just wondering where a plane might end up if it landed at your airport and (for some reason) couldn't stop.

the CO buildings, the airborne express buildings, or the new jersey turnpike. If it was really destructive, it could hit the trains, cranes or boats in the port.

CMH...

Runway 28L heading East
- After crossing Hamilton Road, it would end up at the airport Golf Course.

Runway 28R heading East
- After crossing Hamilton Road, it would end up in the grass between Sawyer Road and Hamilton Road.

Runway 10L Heading West
- After crossing Stelzer Road, it would end up in the Budget Rental Car building.

Runway 10R heading West
- After crossing Stelzer Road, it would end up in the woods (and possibly in the Tour Bus parking lot).

*Of course that is if it made it across those busy Roads at all!

rw8......road, followed by a small field and the river.

NW-Elite:
You sure are right, there doesn't seem to be much else at the end of the runways at IAH.

But...
At HOU, they would hit Airport Blvd. and the rental car places.

in ATL...

If the plane was using the North runways...

heading east... it would probably hit the Ford factory.
heading west... I think there is a spot that is not "built up", it's kinda like a hole. I guess the plane would go in there.

If the plane was using the South Runways....

heading east... it would hit a big interstate (75, I think)
heading west... it would go into the big parking lot.


Not 100% sure, but I think that's right.

EWR

22L..it would end up in the employee parking LOT F

4R...it would end up at the Exit 14 toll plaza for the NJ Turnpike

29..it would end up on Route 1 & 9

11..it would end up on the NJ Turnpike

Any overruns of those runways definitely would not be good.
