Narrative:
Flight TU634 overran runway 08 on landing due to snowy conditions.

3.2 Causes
The inability to measure runway adherence in real time did not to allow the uneven runway contamination to be detected. This led to the crew’s and controllers’ degraded perception of braking conditions at the end of the runway, resulting in the overrun.
The failure to apply the “Loss of Braking” procedure may have contributed to the incident.
