|Title:||Runway excursion, British Aerospace 146-200, ZK-NZB, Queenstown|
|Micro summary:||This BAe 146-200 was driven off the runway after minimal braking action threatened an overrun and collision with structures on the departure end.|
|Event Time:||1990-04-28 at 0940|

|Site of event:||Queenstown RWY 05|
|Departure:||Christchurch International Airport, Christchurch, New Zealand|
|Destination:||Queenstown International Airport, Queenstown, New Zealand|
|Airplane Type(s):||British Aerospace BAe 146-200|
|Type of flight:||Revenue|
|Executive Summary:||The aircraft was being operated on the sector from Christchurch to Queenstown. During cruise the First Officer obtained the current weather conditions by RTF from Queenstown Flight Service. This included advice of continuous light t o moderate rain, 5 octas of cloud at 5000 feet and 7 octas at 10000 feet. As a result an instrument approach to Alexandra was carried out and the aircraft then flown VFR through the Kawarau Gorge to Queenstown. |
At Queenstown, Runway 05 was in use with a variable north to north-west wind reported as 320° 10 to 14 knots. The aircraft was flown on a right hand circuit onto final at 3 nm, where the Captain took over control for landing as was standard Company procedure for that aerodrome.
The crew reported that the approach was initiallv high on the precision approach path indicator (PAPI) but was corrected by 500 feet. Sink was then encountered on short final, but was corrected with an application of power. A speed increase followed, but had been corrected as the aircraft crossed the runway threshold at normal height. Power reduction and normal flare led to a normal touchdown, apparently just past the "300 m" runway markers. Power was reduced t o ground idle, the nosewheel was lowered and the airbrake/lift spoiler lever moved towards the-lift spoiler position.
Wheel braking was commenced promptly, but it became evident to the crew that insufficient deceleration was being achieved. The First Officer assisted the Captain with brake pedal pressure, without evident further effect. 2000 psi brake system pressure applied was noted.
When it became obvious that the aircraft would not stop before the end of the runway, thecaptain steered it left some 25 m to avoid a collision with the substantial concrete gateposts and strainers located 75 m along the extended centre line.
The aircraft rolled across firm grass, through the aerodrome boundary fence, across a 750mm deep ditch, to come to rest in soft pasture 96.7 m from the runway end. Only minor damage was incurred.
