What's Airbus' SOP for a runway overrun/incident like this? Looks like the evacuation slides have not been deployed, but the flaps and spoilers are still extended?
I know for the B737, the flaps are fully extended to assist pax egress from the overwing emergency exits (should an emergency evacuation be required).
Idk why didn't the crews activated the evacuation slides, as the accident was quite serious. Besides that, it is also nonsensical when the flaps and thrust reservers were still extended (no overwing exit on A321ceo)?
Or the pilots were just busying escaping the aircraft and forgot to deactivate those things?
- Flaps / Spoilers are extended for/on landing, so it's more a case of why weren't they stowed. I'd imagine it was not a high priority item, and potentially not advisable to stow. What damage is to be done in this scenario with leaving them extended?
- Evacuation is one of the most dangerous things you can do with an aircraft and passengers. You are going to cause mass panic, injury (both guaranteed), and likely death. What in this scenario is serious enough to warrant that? Is there a fire? Is there a reason the passengers need to get off the aircraft in a panicked scenario? Aircraft is on the grass, engines are shut down...what's going to make things worse
- Why would you suggest the pilots were busy getting off the aircraft, what stressor is there once the engines are shut down for the pilots to panic about. You are on firm (ish) land, all heat sources and ignition sources controlled, you are not going anywhere.
