Which Airports Have RW "buffer Zones"?

Sun Dec 11, 2005 3:19 pm

This is quoted from an msnbc site about the SWA incident....

"The crushable concrete beds — called Engineered Material Arresting Systems — are installed at 18 runways at 14 airports. They have stopped dangerous overruns three times since May 1999 at Kennedy Airport in New York."

Which JFK incidents are they refering to (dates/air-craft/airline) and what are the 14 airports that have theses "buffer" zones.

Quoting Fbm3rd (Thread starter):

See http://www.esco-usa.com/com/instal.html for some of the airports with installations.

There's also a photo of a Saab 340 that was snagged at JFK. A Fedex DC-10 was also snagged, as well as a 747 freighter (Polar or Atlas, I think). A search of www.aviation-safety.net could get you exact dates.

FLL had them installed within the last year, when you drive by on I-95 you
can see the arrestor bed in person.
