Gulfstream Overruns Teterboro Runway


Photo courtesy NJ.com

A Gulfstream G-IV SP went off the end of the runway in Teterboro, NJ at about 1:45 PM on Friday. No one was injured and the aircraft was stopped by the Engineered Materials Arrestior System, or EMAS—a system of aerated concrete blocks that dissipates the energy of the aircraft by breaking up. Thankfully no one was injured, and the aircraft appears to have very little damage. I can't wait to see the preliminary incident report from the NTSB to see what the pilots had to say! The aircraft is registered on Meridian Air Charter's operating certificate, but it is unclear whether the flight was a charter flight or not.

  2. Hmm... I wonder what happened to have caused it to go past the runway. Pilots weren't paying attention?
