Incident highlights need for winter-time runway friction measurement equipment
9 November 2003

The AAIB issued two safety recommendations following the Jan. 30 incident in which an Embraer 135 aquaplaned and overran the slush covered runway at Norwich, UK. It is recommended that the CAA encourage research that could lead to the production of equipment that can accurately measure the braking action of runways under all conditions of surface contamination. Additionaly, City Airline should review its Embraer 135 landing configuration policy. (AAIB)
