TSB issues final report on Airbus A340 runway overrun and fire – Toronto
12 December 2007

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) released its final report into the runway overrun of an Air France Airbus A340 at Toronto/Lester B. Pearson International Airport on August 2, 2005. The aircraft approached Toronto in a severe and rapidly changing thunderstorm with shifting winds and limited visibility. It came in too high and too fast. Touching down almost halfway along the wet and slippery runway, it ran out of room and overran the runway.
The first five TSB recommendations focus on crews and the need for mandatory standards, training, and procedures. The TSB is also making two recommendations aimed at reducing the risk of injury following an accident. (TSB)
