PC-12 Goes Off The Runway At Courchevel

Tue Jul 29, 2003 9:09 pm

A PC-12 from a private Swiss airline went off the end of the Runway at Courchevel on Sunday. All passengers/crew apparently survived but the plane is badly damanged.

This is tiny Chourchevel to get a better idea of where it happened:

At least it was during the landing - I wouldn't want to see someone overrun on takeoff!

Doesn't look very good, the plane. Good that all survived ...

I think I took some pictures of it around two weeks ago at ZRH.

What did happen there?

Ouch...that airport is an accident waiting to happen...and it happenedI wonder if this was the flight crews first time landing there or something?? He either touched down way long or way fast in order to be able to overrun it...seems a hard airport to overrun...that upslope should be sufficient to slow landing traffic by a lot I would imagine...

It was a training session (instruction flight). During the second landing at Courchevel, the aircraft was running off the runway. I assume that the third person in the plane was the instructor.
