QantasLink runway overrun has lessons for pilots

Pilots have received new guidelines on landing in wet conditions after a Boeing 717 aquaplaned and ran past the end of a runway in Western Australia’s Pilbara region last year.

The jet operated by Qantas subsidiary Network Aviation landed in wet weather at Newman Airport and ended up stopping 70 metres beyond the runway threshold but inside the runway end safety area.

None of the five crew and 88 passengers were injured in the January 9, 2020 incident but there was damage to tyres and some landing gear components.
