TSB: Environment and crew decision making factors in Shorts 360 accident at Osha
8 December 2005

The TSB of Canada released its investigation report on the crash of an Air Cargo Carriers Shorts 360 at Oshawa on December 16, 2004. The report states that the crew planned and attempted a landing on a contaminated runway that did not provide the required landing distance. TSB investigators also found that, when the captain attempted a go-around, the aircraft became airborne at a slower-than-normal speed. In addition, investigators discovered that the flight crew had not been advised of a directive issued by the aircraft manufacturer that would have allowed them to use a different approach setting for landing.
