Looking at LBA's website shows a lot of delayed flights after 1.30pm. I wonder if it was a LTE A320.

Just heard from my sources that it there was a problem with the landing gear, and when they landed something happened which caused the a/c to veer off the runway onto the local golf course.

Possibly said the gear had collapsed or ripped off. A/c new they had a problem when the gear came down so they said.

LBA is total chaos at the moment and pax off the a/c are just arriving into the terminal.

Possibly upto 2 days before flights resume !!

LTE376 inbound apparently.

On a late roll-out, reported braking problem.

Continued rolling to the end of 14 then tried to make a right to exit (exit where ?!) but without success.

I believe it's sitting at the end of 14, half on and half off pointing southerly-ish.

Aircraft can't be moved until the AAIB arrive.

No injuries, but between 8 and 10 pax being treated for shock and one, a nosebleed.  fever 

Not sure how people can be suffering from shock...it was a late landing, aircraft maintained directional control down the runway and came to rest just partly off the runway. Journos sheesh.

NOTAM: C2028/05 - AD CLOSED DUE ACFT INCIDENT. 18 MAY 12:24 UNTIL 18 MAY 18:00 ESTIMATED

I seem to recollect vaguely an Iberia A300 doing the same roughly around the same era.

The Iberia A300 was at BRS (On an Aviaco charter), many years ago too. I think that one ran off the end with its nosewheel damaged or even broken off as it did so.

Viscount630; yes, I believe the IB A300 aquaplaned on the runway and over ran. Aircraft involved at LBA is JY-JAR

Flights appear to be back to normal now.

The airport website is carrying the following news story.

Ouch - RWY14 at EGNM is a particularly nasty location for an overrun. The terrain drops away steeply just off the end of the runway. Backtracking for a RWY32 depature is somwhat akin to taxiing down the deck of an aircraft carrier, because of the terrain often all you can see from the flightdeck is the end of the runway and the city of Leeds in the background.

Wish I had a photo to show what I mean. This is the best I could find in the database;

Quoting BBC News:
All 171 passengers were evacuated safely from the aircraft after West Yorkshire Fire Service sent 10 pumps and 50 firefighters to the scene.

Wow... 50 firefighters to evacuate less than 180 people - and it was a leisurely evacuation too, apparently ending almost an hour after the incident. No reason for an emergency evac, of course.

Sorry if this has been covered before, but what happens with pax luggage after an emergency evacuation (regardless of incdent. I know in a fire incident the luggage would proably be affected from water (from fighting fires) and/or smoke damage). But when do they take it out of the a/c, do they ship it to you? I think people who have gone through evacuations can help here. Thanks.
(By the way the L-1011 picture gave me this question)

Quoting TatTVC (Reply 13):

I should think there would only be three answers

1. The baggage is a total loss and you file a claim.

2. The baggage is somewhat damaged. Airline returns it to you and you file a claim.

3. Baggage is intact and airline returns it to you.

More interesting I think is the matter of when. If the baggage is part of a criminal or accident investigation it may be used as evidence and kept by the authorities for some time. If your bag is in the rear hold and nose landing gear collapses it may be some hours before it can be retrieved. etc

Why would the normal West Yorkshire fire service attend the incident, I would have thought the airport fire service would have sufficed considering there were no serious injuries and it doesn't appear to be too bad an accident.
Does anyone know where it is currently parked, because it looked to be partially on/off the runway on the news, as others have said and that it cannot be moved, yet if flights have resumed, how could it be in this position.

We kinda knew that  Wink

LBA is my home airport! I almost went up there this afternoon to take some photo's! Very odd it's 9 days until the 20th anniversary of the Tristar over-run. Ah well...Things go wrong occasionally I guess. Glad no-one was hurt!

The aircraft is currently stood at a right angle at the end of runway 14. It is sat half on the grass, with the rear of the aircraft still on the runway. The aircraft did a sharp turn to the right just metres from the end of the runway to presumably try and prevent an overrun. As mentioned in the press release, an emergency evacuation was not carried out and passengers disembarked via the rear starboard passenger exit down airstairs.

The aircraft will not be moved until air accident investigators have carried out their work. As a result the available runway length is temporarily reduced though aircraft the size of B737's are using the airport again. Larger aircraft (such as BY's 762's) are thought to be unable to use the airport at present.

Cheers for the update Dave.

To be honest,I was beginning to worry that Mr.LBA hasn't been here with the latest news!

Isn't that a little dangerous still using the runway? I guess they have no other choice but still...

It is standard procedure that the local public fire service attend an aircraft incident. What is interesting is that once they arrive on scene, they usually take control and relieve the airport fire service of their duties, although the airport fire service will still be onhand to assist.

When there is such an incident, usually the Control Tower will hit a large red button that sounds the crash alarm at the airport alerting the fire service and this also alerts the public emergency services who will do an all out response as at that stage they won't know the full details and so it might seem like an over reaction, but in the first few seconds (bearing in mind an a/c is still probably moving when that button is hit) they won't know what the outcome is at that stage, so better to have it all and not need it than to need everything and it not be there.

When an a/c is inbound to LHR on a full emergency that is known about before hand, all the available emergency services will be sent to the airport "just incase". 99.9% of the time it isn't needed and they are quickly stood down, but what if you were on that 0.1% of a/c that did need them all and they were not there because most other times they were not needed !!. It looks quite cool at night seeing them all lined up at the RVP next to 27R/09L all with their blue lights flashing.

Regarding the airport still being in use, there are 2 runways at LBA, 09/27 and 14/32. Most of the smaller turbo props can use 09/27 for take off and landing, but the TORA and LDA have been reduced on 14/32 to allow other a/c to use the runway. I believe that inbound a/c are landing towards the incident on 14 and departing a/c are going off away from in down 32.

Given that G-BBAI was repaired and flew for another 14 years, the A320 may be repairable.

G-BBAI has been parked at Abu Dhabi since 1999.

Aircraft Incident at Leeds Bradford Airport
18 May 2005

At 12.43 local time a Jordanian registered Airbus A320 LTE from Fuertaventura landed at Leeds Bradford International Airport.

The aircraft experienced difficulties on landing and came to rest at the end of the runway.

Of the 171 passengers and 7 crew on board there were no injuries.

The incident was attended immediately by the Airport’s Rescue and Fire Fighting Services supported by the local emergency services.

The passengers and crew were disembarked using aircraft steps and coached back to the terminal building. Passengers are now making their way home.

The airport resumed flying operations at 14.15.

The Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) will be investigating this incident. We will not be able to remove the aircraft from its current position until the AAIB have given their authority to do so.

The Airport is unable to comment on any aspects of the technical operation of the aircraft, which is the subject of the AAIB investigation.

There has been some interruption to services at LBIA it is hoped that full operations will be resumed as soon as possible.

Does anyone know if LTE were leasing just the aircraft from Jordan Aviation, or was it a wet lease with Jordan flight crew as well?
