From the sounds of it, a rough night.

That would be contrary to discussions of all past incidents on this forum. This isnít CNN.

Certainly appears to have been a difficult night. Nights like that are why I cringe whenever I hear some moron (pilot or otherwise) make the Ēitís an easy jobĒ comment.

Looks like GRB had recieved freezing rain prior to arrival. I wonder if the pilots were given incorrect runway conditions.

Why? Is there something that shouldn't be discussed?

A United Airlines Boeing 737-900, registration NXXXXX performing flight UA-XXX from Madison,WI to Minneapolis,MN (USA) with 180 passengers and 7 crew, diverted to Green Bay,WI due to weather and landed on Green Bay's Austin Straubel Airport's runway 06 at 03:16L (09:16Z), but overran the end of the runway by about 250 feet. There were no injuries. The crew radioed tower advising they had overrun the end of the runway due to poor braking action on runway 06, they thought they were okay, no injuries on board and the aircraft was okay, too. They just needed stairs so that passengers could disembark and needed to be towed back onto the runway.

The FAA reported the aircraft damaged an airport light.

The aircraft had already diverted to Madison,WI due to weather at Minneapolis while performing the scheduled flight UA-XXX from Houston Intercontinental,TX (USA) to Minneapolis.

I imagine it was nuanced by fuel status.

Always evolves into armchair quarterbacking of a fellow pilot on an anonymous, public forum. I hope you're never on the receiving end.

It never serves a purpose. If you're about to say we can learn from it through discussion, stop. Wait for the final report so you can have all the facts.
