Yangon - Kawthaung
Crew on board:
Pax on board:
The approach to Kawthaung Airport was completed in poor weather conditions with rain and a horizontal visibility down to one km. The aircraft approached too high and landed too far down a wet runway that is 1,260 metres long. Unable to stop within the remaining distance, the aircraft overran at a speed of 80 knots then ended up in a river bank. All 45 occupants were rescued, among them seven passengers were slightly injured.
Wrong approach configuration on part of the flying crew who completed a too high approach and landed too far down a wet runway, causing the braking distance to be insufficient. At the time of the accident, the runway surface was wet and the braking action was limited.
