2016-12-27 Jet Airways 737-800 off runway at Goa


The 737 ran off the side of the runway during take-off at Goa Intl Airport, India. 15 passengers sustained minor injuries.


Jet Airways Flight 9W 2374 was doing a backtrack maneuver cleared for take-off from runway 26 at Goa International Airport (GOI, VAGO) at 05:03L in the morning.  Before the pilots can commence their take-off run a 180 degree turn at the end of the runway was necessary to make use of the full length of the runway. (3,430 Meters)

However, after the tune, when engines where spooling up the aircraft drifted sharply to the right departing paved runway after a few meters. Directional control was eventually lost and the 737 ran over soft ground just north of the runway until it came to a stop 200 meters further with all gear apparently collapsed.

Among the 161 occupants, about 15 sustained non life-threatening injuries.

According to images at the accident location, the forward fuselage took massive damage from an unidentified object before it came to rest making it unlikely the aircraft will repaired again.

Unofficial reports indicate that when both engines spooled-up to 74 % thrust and the 737 began to accelerate, the right engine (CFM56-7B26) thrust reverser deployed forcing the aircraft along its vertical axis to the right. The pilots were unable to counteract and they immediately lost directional control.
