Chinese EMB-190 Plane Crash, Overshot the Runway

A Henan Airlines (former Kunpeng Airlines) Embraer ERJ-190, registration B-3130 performing flight VD-8387 from Harbin to Yichun (China) with 91 passengers and 5 crew, burst into flames after the aircraft impacted terrain short of landing runway 30 at 21:36L (13:36Z). 42 people perished, 7 people received serious injuries and 47 minor injuries. All injured have been taken to local hospitals.

Yichun's emergency services said, that 43 bodies were recovered, 53 people were rescued alive. The black boxes have been recovered with no visible damage.

China's Civil Aviation Authority (CAAC) said shortly after the crash, the Embraer ERJ-190 registration B-3130 with 91 passengers (thereof 5 children) and 5 crew came to a rest approx. 1500 meters from the runway while landing at 21:36L, more than 40 people have been rescued, rescue operations continue. An accident investigation team has been dispatched to Yichun.

On Aug 25th the CAAC said, that 42 people died and 54 survived. The black boxes have been recovered and have been sent to Beijing for analysis.

Local Authorities said on Aug 25th, that visibility at the time of the accident was less than 300 meters (1000 feet) due to fog. The airplane was cleared to land, the crew reported they had the approach lights in sight. The captain of the flight is among the survivors.

The NTSB reported on Aug 26th, that the Embraer ERJ-190 registration B-3130 (engines CF34) impacted terrain about 1500 meters short of runway 30 resulting in 42 fatalities, 7 serious and 47 minor injuries. The NTSB assigned an Accredited Representative to assist the investigation as State of engine design and manufacture.

The CAAC reported subsequently, that crew fatigue was not an issue, the crew was in compliance with regulations regarding duty times. The captain (40) had been with the Air Force and joined Shenzhen Airlines in 2003 to fly Boeing 737s, converted to the Embraer ERJ-190 after the acquisition of Henan Airlines and became captain on the Embraer ERJ-190 on June 20th 2010. It was his first flight into Yichun.

The Airport Authority of Yichun countered claims, that the airport would be unsafe in night time operation, stating that the airport's instrument approach procedures as well as runway and approach lighting fully complied with international regulations. An ILS system was planned, the plans had been approved by CAAC and acquisition of land and preparations necessary to build the ILS system had already been completed, the airport hoped to get the ILS operational by end of the year.

The airport's general manager was waiting for a delegation to arrive on flight VD-8387 and observed the (landing) lights of the aircraft approaching the field, when the lights suddenly disappeared. When he contacted the tower, tower told him radio contact with the aircraft had been lost. Tower reported, that the crew had indicated to clearly see the runway lights before tower cleared the flight to land.

Shenzhen Airlines, parent company of Henan Airlines, confirmed the accident and said, there were 91 passengers and 5 crew on board.

Re: Chinese EMB-190 Plane Crash, Overshot the Runway

there are some very dangerous runways around the world. There was a documentary in Nat geo (IIRC) showcasing these dangers.

and there is another not-so-well-known problem affecting the tampa-St Pete airport and another one in Florida. they have to have adjustments made because of the flux in the magnetic pole in relation to their runways. If it is happening there, It must be affecting other runways .

Re: Chinese EMB-190 Plane Crash, Overshot the Runway

There is one near Amsterdam I think where it lands almost on top of a beach. It's like you could kick a soccer in the air and nail a plane. It's unreal.

Re: Chinese EMB-190 Plane Crash, Overshot the Runway

some of the dangerous airports are due to geography, some are also dangerous due to lack of standards such as air speed and widn direction during landings, and some communications are not standard.

Here are a few notable dangerous landing strips.


Kai Tak Airport, Hong Kong
With numerous skyscrapers and mountains located to the north and its only runway jutting out into Victoria Harbour, landings at the airport were infamously difficult.


http://listphobia.com/wp-content/upl...MostDange2.jpg
Funchal Airport, Madeira
The airport is infamous for its short runway which, surrounded by high mountains and the ocean, which make it a tricky landing for even the most experienced of pilots

http://listphobia.com/wp-content/upl...MostDange3.jpg
Gustaf III Airport, St. Barts
The arrival descent is extremely steep over the hilltop traffic circle and departing planes fly right over the heads of sunbathers (although small signs advise sunbathers not to lie directly at the end of the runway



Courchevel Airport, France
Courchevel’s airport has a certain degree of infamy in the aviation industry as home to one of the shortest runways in the world. The airport has a dangerous approach through deep valleys which can only be performed by specially certified pilots



Lugano Airport, Switzerland
Lugano-Agno’s instrument approach procedure is quite challenging because of its steep angle of descent of 6.65°which is double of the standard approach. This is due to its geographic location in the mouth of a valley.


There are others, and also other collections of these airports, most are common, but some are not listed on other lists. the overlaps are pretty much the same, though
