2014-06-18 China Eastern AL ERJ-145 off runway on landing at Changzi, China


The aircraft landed on runway 18L in rain but veered off to the left of the runway where its entire undercarriage came to rest on grass about 200 meters further.

No one was hurt and only little damage occured if any.  The incident is under investigation. However there were speculations the pilots may have suffered a hydraulic failure on approach resulting in a lack of ground steering ability.
Changzi Airport´s single runway 19/01 is 2600 meters in lengh.

NOTE: about 1 year earlier, another Embraer ERJ-145 (B-3052) of the company experienced runway excursion on landing in rain at Shanghai on 2013-06-07.
