A Jazz Aviation de Havilland DHC 8-402 (JZA8588 / C-GGNF) from Calgary, AB (CYYC) to Saskatoon, SK (CYXE) landed runway 09 and reported they had taxied off the hard surface while exiting on Foxtrot. The aircraft came to rest in grass within 100ft of runway 09. Runway 09/27 was closed until 0646Z. A Transwest Air Beech A100 (C-GJHW) medevac on approach runway 09 was placed in a missed approach. C-GJHW then diverted to Prince Albert (CYPA) due approach limit minimums on for runway 15/33. Several other aircraft placed in holds or diverted due to low visibility and approach limits for 15/33.
Don't mean to dig up old posts or to stir the pot, but we all knew that this little gem would come back to bite somebody in the ass:

Anyone from Jazz care to comment? Do Jazz pilots need raises?
Responding emergency services needed to clear the snow around the aircraft, then the passengers disembarked and were bussed to the terminal. The aircraft was subsequently towed to the apron.
The runway was closed for abotu 6:45 hours.
The Canadian TSB reported that a maintenance inspection did not identify any damage to the aircraft. ATIS at the time of the landing indicated a Canadian Runway Friction Index of 0.52 (braking action medium to good), however, after the occurrence an area of ice with poor braking action was spotted at the end of runway 27 in vicinity of taxiway A.
No similarities to the North Bay over run. This was bad luck. A few aircraft did the same thing in YYZ Monday during the worst of the weather exiting runways or trying to turn on taxi ways.

I think he's a future GGN RJ pilot!
Oh for heaven's sake grow up
Nothing more childish than comments like this where you, in poor taste, insult another group of pilots.
Moving on ..
Are you suggesting the cador is incorrect? If not, you should re-read it. Touchdown on runway 27, with a planned exit at "A".mbav8r wrote:Squid, the runway was reported as .52, they missed the first exit, at around 20 knots and I'm assuming a few hundred feet to go, the brakes were applied and that was when they discovered the ice.
They planned on landing runway 27 and exiting at "F"?Localizer wrote:I'm having an issue understanding the problem here? An airplane landed on a runway with a reported good runway (.52), the aircraft attempted to exit the runway at "F" but decided to exit at the end "A".
I see no reason to doubt the CADORS is correct as to landing runway as it would make no sense to land on 27 and execute a full back-track.....unless all other taxiways were closed.
