Narrative:
The Yak-40 suffered a runway excursion after landing at Saarbrücken Airport , Germany.
The aircraft operated on a service from Frankfurt, on behalf of Lufthansa. An ILS approach was flown to runway 27 with a tailwind component. After touchdown the revere thrust did not activate and the pilots were unable to stop the aircraft on the remaining runway. Because an overrun seemed imminent, the aircraft was steered off the right side of the runway. The Yak-40 collided with trees.

Classification:
