Runway Excursion

Description

Runway excursions can occur on takeoff or on landing. They consist of two types of events:

  • Veer-Off: Excursion in which an aircraft departs the side of a runway
  • Overrun: Excursion in which an aircraft departs the end of a runway

In view of the above, the articles related to runway excursions have been assigned to the following sub-categories:

  • Overrun on Take Off: A departing aircraft fails to become airborne or successfully reject the take off before reaching the end of the runway.
  • Overrun on Landing: A landing aircraft is unable to stop before the end of the runway is reached.
  • Veer Off: An aircraft departs the side of the runway after touchdown on landing or departs the side of the runway during the take off run.

To select a sub-category use the filter in the right data block. Because of their nature, some articles are listed in more than one sub-category.
