No injuries as regional carrier jet runs off San Antonio International Airport runway

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- A regional carrier jet ran off a runway at San Antonio International Airport after landing on a flight from Los Angeles.
Chicago-based United Airlines spokeswoman Megan McCarthy says none of the 52 passengers and four crew members on the United Express jet were injured. They were bused to the terminal.
McCarthy says United will work with SkyWest Airlines, the operator of the regional carrier, to try to determine what caused the aircraft to leave the runway.
San Antonio airport spokesman David Hebert says in a story on the San Antonio Express-News Web site that the plane appeared to be having some mechanical difficulties.
The accident closed the primary runway at the airport for about two hours. Its other runway was already closed for construction.

I sure hope someone wouldn't go off the end of the runway if they forgot to arm the reversers

So do I, but it has come VERY close to happening before... Really heated up the brakes.

You must have been kinda fast over the threshold then...You could weld the reversers shut on the CRJ (all models)....and they don't get that hot. Certainly not on an 8500' long runway, which SAT has.

You have to ARM the TRs in the CRJ? Is there a switch or something?

Wow...just wow... Was this only on the 200 model or is it on th 7 and 9 as well?

I know they must be trying to prevent the TRs from deploying onthe TO roll or in flight but still...a calculator has the computing power to tell the TRs when to fire...

Technically, reversers shouldn't matter. Demonstrated (certified) landing distance is based on no reverse thrust.
