Beschrijving:
The 2800 feet runway Visual Range (RVR) was below the ILS runway 06 minimum of 4000 feet. The Erie Airport runway 24 RVR appeared to be within limits and an ILS approach and landing were carried out in tailwind conditions.
The DC-9 touched down 1800/2000 feet down the snow-covered runway 24 at Vref+10 knots. Braking action was poor because the spoilers didn't auto-deploy because of insufficient wheel spin-up on the slippery runway. The aircraft overran through a fence and crossed a road before coming to rest 180 feet beyond the runway end. A tailwind landing on a slippery runway 24 is not allowed.


PROBABLE CAUSE:
Planning/decision - improper - pilot in command
Go-around - not performed - pilot in command
