The incident aircraft after having been towed to the platform (NTSB).

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) opened  the public docket, releasing more than 400 pages of information as part of its ongoing investigation into the October 2016 runway excursion of an Eastern Air Lines Boeing 737 at New York’s LaGuardia Airport.

A Boeing 737-700 (registration N278EA), a chartered flight operated by Eastern Air Lines, overran runway 22 during landing at New York-LaGuardia Airport, Oct. 27, 2016. The airplane veered to the right during the overrun and partially transited the Engineered Material Arresting System before it came to a stop on the turf about 200 feet from the runway end. None of the 11 crew and 37 passengers, including then vice presidential candidate Mike Pence, were injured.

The docket includes the transcript of the cockpit voice recorder, interview transcripts and summaries, factual reports and other investigative material.

The public docket contains only factual information collected by NTSB investigators, and does not provide analysis, findings, recommendations or probable cause determinations. No conclusions about how or why an accident or incident occurred should be drawn from the docket. The docket opening marks a transition in the investigative process where the majority of facts needed for the investigation have been gathered and the NTSB can move ahead with analysis of those facts.

Any analysis, findings, recommendations, or probable cause determinations related to the accident will be issued by the Board at a later date.
