SouthWest Off-Piste at Burbank

Looks like a SouthWest flight had an unexpected end to its journey
BURBANK (CBSLA) — A Southwest Airlines flight arriving at Burbank Airport from Oakland skidded off the runway after landing Thursday morning.

The jet was stopped by the airport’s Engineered Material Arresting System, which is designed to stop an aircraft that goes off the end of a runway.

The flight had 117 passengers on board.

It has happened to that airline on that runway prior to EMAS.

One report says slides were deployed, but they seem not to show in the photos.
Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment.
