Executive Summary:After a flight from Arlanda airport (ESSA) the aircraft approached Örebro (ESOE) for landing. The crew received the following weather information from the TWR: Wind 020°/9 knots, visibility 1 000 m in snow, broken clouds at 4-500 ft, temp/-dewpoint ±0/±0°C, QNH 1002 hPa, friction on runway 01 ”good to medium” on the first two thirds and ”good” on the last part. The runway friction test was performed 21 minutes before the landing.

The approach and touchdown on runway 19 were normal according to the crew. After the captain had unreversed the engines he intended to taxi to the runway end, turn around and taxi back to the terminal building. He did not, however, manage to stop the aircraft on the runway. It slid past the far runway end and stopped first after 76 m on the levelled area south of the threshold.

The incident was caused by the fact that the captain, in adverse meteorological conditions, touched down too far from the landing threshold and thereafter released the brakes too early. Contributing to the incident was the fact that the actual runway friction was lower than that reported.

During the investigation the Board of Accident Investigation has found that current regulations for measuring and reporting friction values, among other things, lack necessary requirements for maintenance and calibration of approved measuring equipment.
