    Normally wouldn't make world wide news, but after what has happened that will really get put under the global microscope. Seems like a good company with an excellent CEO, and they will have a hard time recovering from all of this.

    I wonder if its pilot error or mechanical (e.g. faulty brakes).
    Still, overshooting a runway without resulting in a crash is a minor event considering the alternative scenarios.
    If this is mechanical, the pilot did a great job and should be recognised for it.

    There are so many failsafes in commercial aviation that it is rarely a single thing that causes it; rather, it's a unique combination of things coming together in a bizarre fashion.

    Having experienced the weather in that like slice of heaven at this time of year I expect that there was a fair amount of precipitation at the time of the incident. If you haven't experienced precipitation in this area a light rain is considered a downpour in the USofA.
