NTSB issues investigation update on Southwest runway overrun
15 December 2005

In an investigation update, the NTSB reports that the Southwest Boeing 737-700 touched down firmly with about 4,500 feet of remaining runway. The autobrakes were set on max. Preliminary calculations also show that, for the runway conditions and use of brakes and thrust reverser that occurred (reversers were deployed about 18 seconds after touchdown), the stopping distance without hitting obstructions would have been about 5,300 feet.
