    Smile Some information

    From Aviation Safety Network (

    Date: 24 MAR 1999
    Time: 12:10
    Type: Airbus A.300C4-620
    Operator: United Arab Emirates - Amiri Flight
    Registration: A6-PFD
    C/n / msn: 374
    First flight: 1985-10-02
    Engines: 2 Pratt & Whitney JT9D-7R4H1
    Crew: Fatalities: 0 / Occupants: 19
    Passengers: Fatalities: 0 / Occupants: 252
    Total: Fatalities: 0 / Occupants: 271
    Airplane damage: Written off
    Location: Rhodes-Diagoras Airport (RHO) (Greece)
    Phase: Landing
    Nature: Int'l Non Scheduled Passenger
    Departure airport: Dubai Airport (DXB/OMDB), United Arab Emirates
    Destination airport: Rhodes-Diagoras Airport (RHO/LGRP), Greece

    The Rhodes runway 07/25 (3260 m long) was wet. Due to the weather circumstances the crew of the Amiri Flight A.300 increased the threshold reference speed from 134 kts to 144 kts. The ground spoilers were not armed. For braking reasons, the auto brake mode was set to "low". The thrust reversers were disabled due to a manufacturer's service bulletin. The aircraft landed with a speed of 166 kts, exceeding the Vref by 22 kts. The ground spoilers did not deploy autmatically because they had not been armed. Consequently the auto brake system, which operates by the deployment of spoilers, did not activate. The crew attempted manual braking but they were too late. The aircraft departed the runway, sustaining serious damage.
    The Airbus was partly broken up after the accident.
