Boeing 737 slides into Florida river with 136 on board, no fatalities
























(Reuters) - A Boeing 737 commercial jet with 136 people on board slid into the St. Johns River near Jacksonville, Florida after landing on Friday, a spokesman for Naval Air Station Jacksonville said.


There were no reports of fatalities but local WOKV-TV that at least two people suffered minor injuries and that the plane was attempting to land during a heavy thunderstorm.


The flight arriving from Naval Station Guantanamo Bay went into the river at the end of the runway at about 9:40 p.m. local time, the air station said.


The mayor of Jacksonville, Lenny Curry, said on Twitter that everyone on board the flight was “alive and accounted for” but that crews were working to control jet fuel on the water.



Curry said in a separate tweet that U.S. President Donald Trump had called him to offer help.


“The plane was not submerged. Every person is alive and accounted for,” the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said on Twitter.


The sheriff’s tweet was accompanied by two photographs showing the plane bearing the logo of Miami Air International resting in shallow water and fully intact.



Miami Air International is a charter airline operating a fleet of Boeing 737-800 aircraft. Representatives for the airline could not immediately be reached for comment by Reuters on Friday evening.


A Boeing spokesman said that the company was aware of the incident and was gathering information.

Em uma cidade com um aeroporto que opera com duas pistas, uma de 3000 e outro de 2300 metros o comandante preferiu arriscar o pouso em uma pista de 2000 no meio de uma tempestade em uma base militar sem nenhum auxílio para pouso.

 

Que bizarro, típica coisa que só acontece em vôo charter.

Mas era o destino final do avião àquela pista, uma tempestade nas vizinhanças não implica no fechamento do campo, a partir daí é questão de julgamento do aviador sobre as condições no momento do pouso, que provavelmente só quem estava tripulando conhecia.

Accident: Miami B738 at Jacksonville on May 3rd 2019, runway overrun on landing, aircraft ends up in river

By Simon Hradecky, created Saturday, May 4th 2019 05:41Z, last updated Saturday, May 4th 2019 13:35Z

A Miami Air International Boeing 737-800, registration N732MA performing flight GL-293 from Guantanamo Bay Naval Air Station (Cuba) to Jacksonville Naval Air Station,FL (USA) with 136 passengers and 7 crew, landed on Jacksonville NAS's runway 10 at 21:42L (01:42Z May 4th) but overran the end of the runway and came to a stop in the shallow waters of St. John's River about 380 meters/1250 feet past the end of the runway and was partially submerged. All occupants were able to evacuate the aircraft, 21 occupants were taken to hospitals with non-critical injuries.

Jacksonville's Sheriff Office reported Marine Units were called in to assist rescue. All persons on board are alive and accounted for. There were minor injuries, a number of people were transported to a hospital. The office later added 21 people were taken to hospitals with non-critical injuries.

The airport reported the aircraft crashed into the river past the end of the runway, about 100 feet off the paved surface.

Jacksonville's Mayor reported the aircraft landed during a rainstorm with low visibility, which may be a factor into the accident.

The NTSB have opened an investigation and dispatched an investigation team on site.

Jacksonville Naval Air Station features a runway 10/28 of 9003 feet/2740 meters length.

Creio que vc está confundindo algo….o aeroporto o qual vc se refere é o Jacksonville International Airport (JAX).

 

O destino desse vôo charter militar era a Naval Air Station Jacksonville (NIP)….onde ocorreu o incidente.
