3 September 2004

The Spanish accident board CIAIAC released the report of their investigation into the 1999 accident of a Britannia Boeing 757 at Girona., The airplane landed heavy in torrential rain immediately after all runway lights had suddenly failed. The displacement of the nose landing gear support structure caused disruption to aircraft systems that led to uncommanded forward thrust increase, causing the plane to skid off the runway. (CIAIAC)
