DLH 2904 flight from Frankfurt to Warsaw progressed normally until Warsaw Okecie TWR warned the crew that windshear exists on approach to RWY 11, as reported by DLH 5764, that had just landed. According to Flight Manual instructions PF used increased approach speed and with this speed touched down on RWY 11 in Okecie aerodrome. Very light touch of the runway surface with the landing gear and lack of compression of the left landing gear leg to the extent understood by the aircraft computer as the actual landing resulted in delayed deployment of spoilers and thrust reversers. Delay was about 9 seconds. Thus the braking commenced with delay and in condition of heavy rain and strong tailwind (storm front passed through aerodrome area at that time) aircraft did not stop on runway.
In effect of the crash one crew member and one of the passengers lost their lives. The aircraft sustained damage caused by fire.
Does anyone know if Boeing or MDC Aircraft have computers like these? I think as soon as any touch on the ground occurs on any part of the landing gear no matter how light, the spoilers should be deplyed automatically. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
