Far Eastern Air Transport flight FE061, an MD-82 airplane, registration number B-28017, took off from Songshan Airport at 07:50 Taipei time for Kinmen Airport. The airplane carried 98 passengers and 6 crew members, totally 104 people on board. When landing on runway 06 at 08:53, the airplane stopped beyond the runway end line. The airplane had no damage and all people on board were safe.

Findings related to probable causes:
The airplane approached and landed with 21 knots right cross wind condition. The airplane did not perform firm landing and had phenomenon of delay landing. After airplane touched down, the flight crew did not retard the throttle to flight idle immediately due to the operations of cross wind correction and trying to keep the airplane on runway center line. The flight crew lacked of situational awareness when landed on a wet runway and strong cross wind conditions. The flight crew did not re-extend the spoiler after it was retracted. The flight crew did not apply optimized thrust reversers and maximum brakes in time such that performance of airplane speed reduction was affected after landing. The airplane ran over the end line of runway 06 finally.
