Planes have two ways to brake.

Wheel braking is the main one used. This is aided by the spoilers, devices on the wings that when active reduce their lift to virtually nothing, so the full weight of the plane is on the wheels.

Reverse thrust is for extra braking. I believe for a landing to be allowed though it must be possible WITHOUT the reverse thrust.

Most runway over-runs result from failure to activate the spoilers, meaning the wheel braking is ineffective. Aquaplaning on a wet runway also occurs.

Maybe they might consider air-breaks now...

You`re probably wrong, roodboi: "The crash rate for male pilots, as for motor vehicle drivers, exceeds that of crashes of female pilots."

Eagle390, That ravine you`re talking about; an Air France plane over-ran the runway and fell into it about a year or 2 ago.
No casualties or injuries though, so yay for that.

nessaculnamo: Same here when I had a game years ago!

You know, it`s so strange that some time before the 11/9 I used to aim and fly the planes at the WTC towers.. (They didn`t even move though..)

.. I wonder if the CIA will be at my door any minute now.

I forgot what this airport is called, or where it is, but I learned about it in my trades course. It by-far is one of the most dangerous airports I have seen.

I couldn`t find a better picture of it either... But if you screw up at that airport, you don`t get to take the ski lift back up...

That`s the problem! There`s no international standards on over-runs. There`s so many things that can be done to help prevent them/reduce the risk of over running, but not many airports have them.

Some airports in the USA have a low density concrete at the end of the runways. When the plane runs over it, it digs in, just like a bike going through a sand pit, it stops the plane pretty damn quickly.

Back in the late 80`s there was a run-over in Canada. The plane landed in the middle of the runway on a bad day and did not engage its reverse thrusters when it hit the runway, causing it to over shoot. The plane kept going and ended up falling 50 feet down a ravine. Officials recommended that the ravine (which is located within 100 feet of the end of the runway) be filled in. It still has not been filled in.

Oh, and if you keep crashing when playing Flight sim, maybe your problem is that you didn`t do the tutorials... it`s not that hard...

Damn you Boeing!!

that quick flash of fire in one of the left engines as it hit the dirt was nice.
