Unfallbericht:
A Miami Air Boeing 737-800, registration N732MA, operating as Flight 293 from Cuba’s Leeward Point Field at Guantánamo Bay experienced a runway overrun upon landing at Jacksonville Naval Air Station/Towers Field (KNIP), Jacksonville, Florida. The airplane came to rest in the shallow waters of St. Johns River, sustaining substantial damage. The 143 passengers and crew survived and initially there have been no reported injuries.
The aircraft was engaged in a charter flight to bring military personnel and family members home. It departed Guantánamo Bay at 23:19 UTC.
At 21:22 the pilot checked in with a Jacksonville approach (JAX) controller while level at 13,000 ft mean sea level and was provided the JAX altimeter setting; the controller advised the pilot to expect the RNAV runway 28 approach and moderate-to-heavy precipitation on the final approach to runway 28 (9000 ft/2743 m long).
At 21:23, the JAX controller advised the pilot that the winds at KNIP were from 350° at 4 knots; the pilot then asked if there was any chance of getting runway 10 because it looked a little better. The JAX controller responded that he was showing moderate-to-heavy precipitation building over runway 10 starting about 5 miles on final. The pilot acknowledged and said he would stick with runway 28. He was then instructed to descend and maintain 5,000 ft.
A weather update at 21:24 showed that both runways looked "pretty bad" and were "socked in." The pilot elected to continue for an approach to runway 28.
At 21:30, the JAX controller advised the pilot that the flight was heading northbound and the precipitation was moving eastbound; the controller then asked the pilot if he would like to try runway 10 since it might be better. The pilot acknowledged "yeah go ahead, let’s do it." The controller then instructed the pilot to turn left to a heading of 270°, and the pilot acknowledged. Over the next several minutes, the flight was vectored for the approach to runway 10. At 21:37, the JAX controller cleared the flight for the RNAV runway 10 approach, and the pilot acknowledged. Shortly after, the flight was transferred to the KNIP radar controller.
The pilot contacted the KNIP radar controller, and, at 21:39, the KNIP radar controller indicated the winds were from 240° at 10 knots; he then cleared the flight to land on runway 10. The pilot acknowledged the landing clearance when the airplane was about 5 nautical miles from the runway threshold. At 21:41, the KNIP radar controller instructed the pilot to report the field in sight, to which the pilot immediately responded he had the field in sight.
At 21:42 the aircraft touched down at an airspeed of 163 kts with a tailwind of about 15 knots. The ground spoilers deployed three seconds after touchdown. The aircraft was not able to use thrust reversers as the right hand thrust reverser was inoperative. This was allowed per Minimum Equipment List (MEL).
The airplane impacted a rock embankment at the end of the runway 10 overrun area before coming to rest in the St. Johns River about 1,200 ft from the end of runway 10. The center of the airplane was about 100 ft east of the river’s shoreline and about 75 ft south of the runway 28 landing light pier. The water where the airplane came to rest was 3-5 ft deep, depending on the tidal conditions. The embankment had a distinct area of disturbed rocks, consistent with the engines and main landing gear impacting the embankment. The airplane was mostly intact, but both main landing gear had separated from the airplane and were also located in the river.

Runway 10 had a displaced threshold due to arresting gear at beginning of runway. This meant that there was a landing distance available of about 7800 feet (2377 m).
