737 lands not on the runway...

Recommended Posts

...but beside it.Some Canadian 737 landed on Feb 25, 2004 at Edmonton Intl. airport but did not land on the runway but just next to it. Pilots managed to steer the aircraft back onto the runway after the landing. In the process they knocked out several lights and some sign. The reason for this accident being quoted was: poor runway lighting, tired pilots, deteriorating visibility and wrong autopilot selection.Michael J.WinXP-Home SP2,AMD64 3500+,Abit AV8,Radeon X800Pro,36GB Raptor,1GB PC3200,Audigy 2http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/747400.jpghttp://www.hifisim.com/images/asv_beta_member.jpg

They got it down in one piece, didn't they? :)Better to land on the grass or taxiway next to the runway than to plaster the aircraft all over a major mountain.
