Tame E190 Off Runway At CUE

Thu Apr 28, 2016 6:42 pm

A TAME E190 has overran the runway at Cuenca in rainy weather.

The aircraft was able to stop and evacuated via slides with several injuries.

The landing gear collapsed and engine detached.

Did it look like he turned 90 degrees to the right? Probably was a last ditch effort to stop.

I flew out of CUE in January. It's a 6000 foot runway at 8000 feet elevation. It's a very narrow field with houses on either side of the fence. You can literally look into people's houses and backyards during takeoff roll. Not a lot of margin for error.

Another website indicated the pilot intentionally ground-looped to avoid going off the end, so you may indeed be correct.

It was pouring rain hard at UIO when my flight left at midnight (my bags were soaked when I got them at IAH) Glad this wasn't my flight from MEC-UIO on Tuesday.
