A Gulfstream G200 Galaxy corporate jet suffered a runway excursion after landing on runway 02 at Tegucigalpa-Toncontin Airport, Honduras. The aircraft was destroyed but all occupants survived with minor or no injuries.
The flight had departed from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, Texas, USA with four passengers and two pilots on board. The en route part of the flight was uneventful. The flight was cleared to land on runway 02 at Tegucigalpa-Toncontin Airport. The runway length is 2012 meters, but the Landing Distance Available is 1657 meters. The aircraft was fast on the approach and touched down at an airspeed of 142 knots, whereas it should have been 128 knots. Touchdown occurred late, 993 meters short of the end of the runway. It then took 13 seconds before ground spoilers and thrust reversers were deployed.
The aircraft was not able to stop on the remaining runway, went down a slope and came to rest across a road. The fuselage broke in two, immediately forward of the wing.
