Descripción:
Korean Air Flight KE-1533 departed Seoul-Gimpo Airport (SEL), South Korea at 10:55 for a domestic flight to Pohang (KPO). Weather at Pohang was poor with rain and gusty variable winds.
The first approach to land, at 11:40, was aborted. A second ILS approach was flown for landing on runway 10. During the approach winds had changed to 330 degrees with gusts to 32 knots. Tailwind component was 20 knots.
The airplane touched down about 1500 feet past the runway 10 threshold at a speed of 158 knots (Vref was 144 knots). The autobrakes had been set to Medium. The thrust reversers deployed about 27 seconds after touchdown. These conditions resulted in the plane not being able to stop on the runway. It overran the runway, skidded through 10 antennas, a barbed wire fence and came to rest against an embankment, broken in two.


The Korean Civil Aviation Bureau (KCAB) determined that the cause of the accident was the flight crew's "poor action" in bad weather (including gusts and variable winds), misuse of the brake and thrust reverser during the landing roll, and lack of decision-making for executing a go-around and stop. In addition, the KCAB believed that the flight crew received poor ground assistance.
