    As an example, this is what it takes to overrun a perfectly adequate longer-than-needed dry runway:

    Vref 131, touch down at 171.
    Expected touch down point 1000ft down the runway, touch down 3000 ft down the runway.
    With a tailwind of 13 knots.

    How do you get to that point?

    "The flight was normal until the approach. The descent/approach checklist was carried out, however, only partially. The landing checklist was missed by the crew.

    The transcript quoted in the report shows eight "Sink Rate" GPWS callouts between 1000 feet AGL and 500 feet AGL (automated GPWS callouts), following the automated 400 feet AGL GPWS call out the GPWS sounded "Sink Rate!", "Pull up!", "Pull up!", "Pull Up!", "Sink Rate!", "Sink Rate!", "Sink Rate!", "Fourty", "Sink Rate!", "Twenty", "Ten".

    Radar data showed the aircraft at 2700 feet MSL (aerodrome elevation 18 feet) at 249 knots over ground about 3nm before the runway threshold.

    The aircraft touched down nose gear first at 171 KIAS (Vapp 135 KIAS, Vref 131 KIAS) 1695 meters past the runway threshold (LDA 2695 meters) at about +1.22G after having descended through the last 1000 feet AGL within 38 seconds (average rate of descent about 1580 feet per minute). The gear proximity switch went into ground mode, briefly into airborne mode before returning to ground mode, a bounce thus was likely."



    The runway was more than double the required landing distance.
    Sufficiently reckless behavior is capable of exceeding any runway length no matter how long.

      High-hours hubris and cockpit gradient. Broken culture. Once again, you have to wonder how many unstable approaches this captain pulled off before his day of reckoning. The ONLY defense against this mentality is procedure and the rigid requirement to adhere to it. The cancer in the industry is the persistent attitude among experienced airmen that they are above procedure and can cowboy their way through anything. Just another hot-shot pilot in the overrun, hopefully back to flipping burgers.
