Atlantic Airways Flight 670Tuesday October 10, 2006
While attempting to land, the charter plane skidded off the end of the runway, slid down an embankment and caught fire. One survivor was seriously hurt, eleven others were not seriously injured. Burning fuel in the cabin was the main reason three passengers and one crew member died and six others were badly injured. All six spoilers failed while landing. Even with the failed spoilers, a damp runway and a slight tailwind, there should have been sufficient room to stop. However, when the pilots realized the spoilers had failed, one of them selected emergency braking not realizing that this deactivated the antilock braking system.
