An Embraer ERJ-190AR passenger jet sustained substantial damage in a runway excursion accident at Quito-Mariscal Sucre Airport (UIO), Ecuador. There were 97 passengers and six crew members on board. All occupants survived the accident and eleven occupants sustained minor injuries.
TAME Flight 148 departed Loja (LOH) at 18:26 on a domestic flight to Quito (UIO) in Ecuador. An IFR flight plan had been filed.
The en route part of the flight was uneventful. Quito Approach Control vectored the flight for an approach to runway 35. About 19:04 the crew selected the flaps for landing. Immediately the EICAS screen displayed a SLAT/FLAP system fault. The crew then attempted to resolve this problem by resetting the system. Five attempts were made without success. The slats remained in position 0 and the flaps had moved to position 2. The crew did not use the procedures established by Embraer and decided to continue the approach and landing.
The airplane touched down 880 metres down the runway and was not able to stop on the runway. It rolled off the runway, impacted antennas of the instrument landing system before it collided with a brick wall 300 metres from the runway end.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The Board of Inquiry estimated that the probable cause of this accident was the crew's decision to continue the approach and landing without carrying out the procedures (ABNORMAL AND EMERGENCY PROCEDURES) established by EMBRAER in the Quick Reference Handbook for when malfunctions occur in the slat/flap system, resulting in a landing too far down the runway."
