Crew of 5 treated for minor injuries. Aircraft in one piece, but very damaged off the end of 32
https://www.thechronicleherald.ca/news/ ... rt-257275/
Aircraft went off end of RW14 which is near the golf course, not RW32 that the airport spokesperson said.
How can you get a job as spokesperson with little knowledge.
If you google metar history there’s a website that stores every report.
From a speci minutes after the accident:
230-11-g18. 8sm. -RA BR. SCT005. BKN012. 13/13
Glad no one got badly injured!
I checked the plates. There are many variables, don’t know what their equipment and ops specs allow. Plus, one would also need to see the Notams, in case these modified the published minimums.
With magnetic variation from the metar winds, 32 was their next best choice.

I'm sure they will make it to China dishes.....may just be a bit more expensive.

My reading of the story says that the '47 was there to pick up the lobsters...so they just got a temporary reprieve..
Happiness is V1 at Thompson!

Variable tailwinds on final.
Ensign Ricky: Aw, crap.

Was it a variable tailwind?
Because that will definitely negatively affect the stall characteristics.
It’s perhaps one of the deadliest things we deal with in aviation.
A tailwind? Wha?
NOW I get it! haha
It takes a lot to accept that mantle of responsibility - good on you Photofly!I'm sorry, but someone has to say it.

I wonder if they were doing the ILS for 14 because they didn't have RNAV capability...?
Didn't see the wx at the time of the "hard landing" (yep, the evening news actually called it that - we don't have accidents at YHZ, just hard landings), but I looked at the METARS a few hours later and it still had the one for 10z (about 45 min after accident):

The ILS for 23 is down, so if they couldn't do the RNAV, and that SCT 006 was BKN, the ILS 14 was all they had (except for diverting elsewhere - too bad they didn't take that option )
They've been working on taxiways since the summer, and the runway for a while, too (can't recall exactly when they started, though). Earlier than that and they're into fog season, which tends to be more of a problem than the fall winds - it's just been windier this year than usual (or should I say there's been more windy days).
