If a plane breaks in half you can't really call it a runway excursion, this is a proper overshoot that has resulted in a full hull loss, you could call it a crash landing.

So, she's a writeoff? :p

Glad to hear the crew is ok. It'll be interesting to find out why they overran.

Clearly a hull loss, fuselage broken behind wing box. Plus all engines ripped of the wing. Probably quite lucky that there was no post-accident fire.

Given the age and condition, it must be a write off.

How long is it likely to take for them to complete the accident investigation and break it up.

It was raining very hard here in Halifax last night. I was working late and drove home around 10:30 pm and there was significant standing water all over the place...I hydroplaned at 50 km/h several times.

For once.. I would say "substantial" is an understatement. Yikes. :(

All gear, at least 2&3 (maybe all) engines / structural pylon/wing damage, major fuselage damage.

Many of these cargo birds were already living out their second lease on life.

They landed on the 14 end of the mco shorter 2347 metre runway 14/32 vs the 3200 metre runway 05/23. I’m guessing the choice of runway was due to the weather conditions?

The issue is that nobody cares about a simple runway excursion, which can be seen at the low number of replies in the 1st hours this thread was posted. I guess it has to do with the OP not wanting to have a clickbait title, but has now turned into a who cares title instead.

Let me be the first out of all these posts to say I'm glad the crew is basically-okay.

This was one of the more-important cash-generators for this borderline company, and there was more business coming on a long-haul route 3 days a week for this aircraft, according to Loadstar. Maybe this will push the whole 3-aircraft mess over the edge. WGN can pick up the MD11 business, if it can be done profitably.

Clearly the crew are the top priority.

However, as the aircraft is largely intact I had assumed this to be the case.

And...landing on runway 14 with a tailwind from 280 at 16 gusting to 21.

That certainly will be part of the investigation.

So they decided to land RWY14 with wind reported as 280/18G21 and ATC questioning their intentions. That equates to a tailwind of around 16 knots. On a 2350 meter runway that was wet. Even if they were light, the outcome is hardly surprising.
Signature. You just read one.

Yup. In a situation like this, do ATC have the authority to order a 'go around' and have them approach a different runway?

YHZ, in relation to its size has seen a disproportionate number of crashes in the past 15 years.

AC 320 snowstorm
MK 742F - RIP crew

and now this.

Was just about to post the exact same point, a disproportionate amount of accidents for an airport handling about 4M pax / year. Is there something inherently wrong with the location of YHZ? Perhaps it elevated location makes it prone to bad weather, especially lack of visibility?

This has me thinking. This is very likely the third hull loss - crash? - at YHZ since 2004. The other are MK 1602 in 2004 (that's two 747s!) and AC 624 in 2015.

YHZ is not such a busy airport. In 2017 it ranked 8th in Canada by passenger traffic, but not even in the top 20 by aircraft movements. YHZ had 84,045 movements, whereas YYZ had over 467,000. All of YUL, YVR, YYC had more than double YHZ and many others are busier - YEG, YOW, YTZ, YQM, YYJ, YQB to name some. Heck, even "Region of Waterloo International Airport" is busier, at over 101,000 movements (Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_t ... _in_Canada)

During that same period, I can think of only 1 accident resulting in a hull loss at all of the other top-20 airports (AF 368 in 2005, at YYZ), and only 2 others in the entire rest of the country (I'm thinking of aircraft that are large enough to seat 30 passengers or more - these are the ATR at Fond Du Lac in 2017, and First Air at YRB in 2011). And let's not get into the question of how many airports there are in the US with 86,000 movements or more, which have had no crashes. Now I may be missing some incidents, but however you look at it 3 hull loss accidents is a major "outlier" in this era of safe flight, where major incidents are rare.

Which leads to me to wonder: what is it about YHZ? Is it the weather conditions (I've had many bumpy approaches and landings there)? Is it the composition of the traffic (ie, fewer flights, but more large / cargo flights)? Or is it just plain bad luck?

YHZ is up on a bit of a pleateau, particularly apparent on the approach to 14.

Our weather here in general can be very bad at time, though I don’t think extreme in any way.

In terms of why they used 14...there is airfield construction underway and I think a good chunk of taxiway A is closed (it was during the summer), so maybe they chose 14 to avoid a long backtrack and 180? Pure speculation on my part.

I wonder if the ILS on 23 was in service?

While it's fun to speculate, I would suggest that before saying that the airport has a factor, maybe you should check the reports from the MK and AC incidents cited. to see if the airport layout or location or whatever associated with CYHZ are listed as having been contributors to the accident. My preliminary review find crew blamed for one and airline procedures for the other, What caused this one. I will not publicly speculate. Thank goodness no one was seriously hurt. planes can be replaced as can the equipment on the ground.

ILS 23 was U/S because of construction and the 23 had a displaced threshold as well. So 14 was the only ILS available

Maybe it has a lot to do with Maritime weather. Heavy rains, strong winds and heavy snowstorms in winter. Couple that with YHZ being on a plateau with a short crosswind runway?

Trans States kept busting ERJs at YOW. They had 3 overruns in a span of like 7 years. I think at least 1 of those was a write-off. Fortunately no major injuries in any of those accidents. As I recall, for each one there was hydroplaning coupled with Trans States' alleged el-cheapo non-thrust reverse equipped ERJs was the culprit. These incidents actually lea to YOW becoming the first airport in Canada to groove their main runways.

Yup. In a situation like this, do ATC have the authority to order a 'go around' and have them approach a different runway?
Generally not (at least as far as I know in the USA--I realize this was in Canada). ATC's authority usually stops with operational considerations. For example, they can deny an opposite-direction approach if there is traffic coming in the "right" way, but they won't usually go beyond strongly hinting that an idea is a bad one; the final authority on the safe operation of a flight lies with the flight crew.

An example of both points from my private flying:

I routinely do IFR practice at an airport with approaches in both directions, and to get in an extra approach, usually request approaches from both directions. When traffic at the airport is light, I often get it. When the airport is busy or multiple planes are flying approaches in the wind-favored direction, my opposite-direction request gets denied.

I once called for a weather briefing (not ATC, but same idea), and found there to be embedded thunderstorms along my route. The briefer couldn't tell me not to fly, but he did confirm multiple times that I was canceling the flight (after I said I wasn't going to fly, he came back along the lines of, "just to confirm, you are NOT going to fly today?").
Why yes, in fact, I am a rocket scientist...

Makes a lot of sense. Listening to the ATC recording here, while the tone of the controller's voice did not change, he did give the updated weather conditions twice. By reiterating it a second time, it's sorta almost hinting at a 'are you nuts?'.

But as mentioned up the thread, if they only had that 1 working ILS because of works on the other runways then given the crappy wx conditions they didn't have any other choice, short of a diversion elsewhere.

He also specifically asked if Runway 14 was still acceptable given the updated winds.

Sky Lease Cargo Boeing 747-400F badly damaged at Halifax

Wed Nov 07, 2018 5:07 pm

Sky Lease Cargo Boeing 747-400F badly damaged at Halifax

A Sky Lease Cargo Boeing 747-400F (N908AR) was very substantially damaged when it overran the end of Runway 14 on landing at Stanfield International Airport, Halifax, Nova Scotia on November 7, 2018. After leaving the runway the aircraft continued, across the grass and through the localiser antenna, before eventually coming to rest on its belly some 200m beyond the end of the runway. During the overrun three of the aircraft's engines were torn off or heavily damaged and the fuselage appears to have failed aft of the wing. There were no reported serious injuries to the five persons on board. The accident happened in darkness (0506L) and in IMC; wind 260deg./16kt., gusting to 21kt., visibility 7sm in rain and mist, cloud, broken at 500ft and overcast at 1,300ft and temperature and dew point 14C. Runway 14 at Halifax has an asphalt surface and is 7,700ft long. The aircraft was operating a cargo flight (KKE4854) from Chicago, Illinois.

If a plane breaks in half you can't really call it a runway excursion, this is a proper overshoot that has resulted in a full hull loss, you could call it a crash landing.


Ugh, lawdy lawd! A.net at its best! Something notable and discussion-worthy occurs and the very first reply is concerned with such pedantry. :lol:


Well, on another not-to-be-named airline discussion board, the undershoot on landing of AC 624 was described by some as a mere "hard-landing" (including AC initially) as it eventually DID make some transit of the runway and passengers really didn't have that much to complain about. So "pedantry" may be overstating it one-way and "apologetics" may be overstating it the other. Regardless, the incident was serious in both cases and damage to the level that both aircraft were (or will almost certainly be) written-off.

Makes a lot of sense. Listening to the ATC recording here, while the tone of the controller's voice did not change, he did give the updated weather conditions twice. By reiterating it a second time, it's sorta almost hinting at a 'are you nuts?'.


But as mentioned up the thread, if they only had that 1 working ILS because of works on the other runways then given the crappy wx conditions they didn't have any other choice, short of a diversion elsewhere.


Ah but as Blackbox67 upthread linked to:

At about 04:50L, about 25 minutes before the accident landing, Morningstar (FDX) B757F (MAL8062) landed on runway 23.


In that type of weather, it's safe to say a 757 is using navaids to land.

One only has to look at the multiple CADORS reports of missed approaches due to wind, tail strikes, wing strikes to understand that this is a challenging place to fly in and out of. Mostly weather related.

Different airlines have different authorized approaches, some airlines can’t fly a NDB approach but could fly an RNP approach- where other airlines can fly a NDB approach but can’t fly RNP approach.

It may have been that the airline did it authorize thier crew to use type of approach that was available for runway 23. That being said, there are not many airlines that authorize landing in that sort of tailwind.

I think from the photos we've seen - we can say it is comprehensively wrecked. Hope the crew aren't feeling too sore.

:? Perfected? Obviously a certain problem with the airworthiness hasn't been solved yet!
This is your pilot speaking. Welcome to flight one from here to there. We'll be flying at a height of ten feet, going up to twelve and a half feet if we see anything big. My copilot today is a flask of coffee.
