Wind a Factor in Falcon 900EX Overrun
Falcon 900EX N973M sustained minor damage during a landing overrun at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on March 3. According to the NTSB, due to the wind (290 degrees at 10 knots), the pilots added 10 knots to their landing approach speed of 120 knots. Just before touchdown on Runway 24, the control tower reported the wind from 290 degrees at 15 knots, gusting to 20 knots. Both pilots reported that the airplane touched down “close to” or “within” the touchdown zone. Witnesses at the airport told the NTSB they saw the airplane land about halfway down Runway 24. A weather observation taken after the incident reported the wind from 330 degrees at 19 knots, gusting to 26 knots.
