Case Study

Runway Overrun - Runway Excursion (RE)

On 23 September 1999, at about 2246 local time, a Qantas Boeing 747-438 aircraft registered VH-OJH (callsign Qantas One - QF 1) overran runway 21 Left (21L) while landing at Bangkok International Airport (VTBD), Thailand. 

The overrun occurred after the aircraft landed long and aquaplaned on a runway which was affected by water following very heavy rain. 

The aircraft sustained substantial damage during the overrun - costing $100 million dollars in repairs. None of the three flight crew, 16 cabin crew or 391 passengers reported any serious injuries.
