LAN Chile flight 1069 departed Punta Arenas Airport, Chile at 14:51 hours on a flight to Puerto Williams Airport. At 15:15 the flight was cleared for a VOR A approach to runway 26. Wind was given as 180 degrees at 4 knots. Shortly afterwards the controller radioed updated wind information of 160 degrees at 6 knots. The captain then decided to perform a direct approach and landing on runway 08. This was approved by air traffic control.
The aircraft touched down 427 m from the runway threshold (LDA 1,440 m) at a speed of 112 kt; Vref was 110 kt with a target touchdown speed of 103 kt.
The aircraft overran runway 08 and ended up in the water of the Beagle Channel.

Probable Cause:

CAUSE OF ACCIDENT (translated from Spanish):
The accident with the BAE-146 aircraft, which occurred at the Puerto Williams Airport, was caused by a failure of operation due to poor planning made by the pilot during the approach phase when he decided to change runway and misapplication of the landing phase procedure.
This, in addition to contributing factors such as weather conditions, negative slope, wet track and wind, little braking action, which led to the aircraft leaving the runway.
