Thumbs down NTSB Prelim on Learjet overrun @BVX

NTSB: Lear Landed Long, Fast on Wet Rwy before Excursion

If Pilots would just observe stabilized approach criteria think of all the accidents that would be prevented. Over the numbers at a groundspeed of 190 knots.

The Learjet 45 that collided with the airport perimeter fence after running off 6,602-foot Runway 8 after landing at Batesville (Arkansas) Regional Airport (KBVX) on November 29 initially touched down at 190 knots and about 2,000 feet past the threshold, according to an NTSB preliminary report. The twinjet, on a Part 91 business flight, was substantially damaged in the nighttime accident, and the two pilots sustained minor injuries while the six passengers were not injured.

ATC cleared the airplane for the RNAV (GPS) Runway 8 approach and the crew canceled IFR after visually acquiring the landing zone. The airplane crossed the final approach fix at 265 knots ADS-B groundspeed and the Runway 8 threshold at 190 knots ADS-B groundspeed. Tire marks indicated intermittent braking started about 3,021 feet from the end of the runway. Continuous anti-skid braking application began about 2,069 feet from the end of the landing strip and continued until the end of the pavement.

The airplane exited the runway at an airspeed of about 100 knots ADS-B groundspeed, then continued forward and struck a ditch and the airport perimeter fence. The forward fuselage sustained substantial damage. Initial examination revealed normal flight control continuity. The spoilers were found in the deployed position, matching the cockpit spoiler handle position. The flap handle was at the 20-degree position, consistent with the position of the left and right flaps.
