Accidents & Serious Incidents at or in vicinity of PTKK

  • B738, vicinity Chuuk Micronesia, 2018 (On 28 September 2018, a Boeing 737-800 was flown into the sea short of the intended landing runway at Chuuk during a non-precision approach which was continued below MDA without having obtained the required visual reference. The Investigation found that the Captain’s approach had become unstable soon after autopilot disconnection and an excessive rate of descent had taken the aircraft below the indicated glideslope and below MDA despite multiple EGPWS ‘Sink Rate’ aural Alerts and a visual-only ‘PULL UP’ Warning with impact following 22 seconds after passing MDA. The absence of an aural ‘PULL UP’ Warning was considered significant.)
