While “all is well that ends well,” there’s a pretty cool video taken of an Airphil Express Airbus 320 overrunning the runway in Kalibo, Philippines. The video is only about a minute long and can be found here:
Then there are the following videos (slightly less interesting, though still worth watching):
Fortunately it looks like everything was okay, though you have to wonder:
a) Why did the pilot only make the “prepare for landing announcement” so shortly before landing? The flight attendants were reminding passengers to fasten their seatbelt as the plane was flaring.
b) Why didn’t the pilot do a go around? The runway is around 7,200 feet which is fairly long, so they must have only touched down about a mile down the runway.
c) Why didn’t they evacuate the aircraft? If the brakes were so hot that they felt there was the risk of a fire (hence the spraying), why wasn’t the plane evacuated prior to that, given that it probably took quite a while for the “rescue” vehicle to arrive?
Obviously this is a case of hindsight being 20/20 and not actually knowing the circumstances, but those are the questions that immediately come to mind.
