Long Way To Overrun
By Nobody on Tuesday, May 11th 2021 13:22Z

This is actually very interesting… SBGR runway 09L has a length of 3700 meters (with actual usable runway beyond the glide slope is 3263 meters) which is quite long… There is no tailwind component either.

This brings several questions to mind :

– What was the actual landing weight ?
– What was the reported braking action ?
– Was autoland performed ? (09L has CAT II approach available.)
– Was there a problem with the braking system ?

Let’s see what will turn out.
