On Wednesday December 29, an American Airlines Boeing 757 overran Runway 19 at Jackson Hole upon landing.  The commercial flight was inbound from Chicago with 175 passengers and 181 total persons on board.  It ran into deep snow and came to a stop 358 feet past the end of the overrun apron at the end of the runway.

An eyewitness who lives next to the airport and who is also a local pilot, reported that when the plane passed his house near the end of the runway, he thought to himself "that is going way too fast".  The cause is under investigation by the NTSB and finding likely won't be released for months.

Upon coming to a stop, the pilot announced over the cabin PA that the breaks weren't working properly.  A video taken by a passenger during landing and posted to You Tube, and reposted on this local Jackson Hole blog, showed the aircraft landing and then rolling a considerable distance down the runway before the reversers deployed to assist in slowing the aircraft.  Normally the reversers are deployed immediately after touchdown and can be set to auto-deploy on the Boeing 757.

According to Jackson Hole Airport director Ray Bishop and reported by JH News & Guide, visibility at the airport was 1-1/2 miles in light snow.  The runway braking conditions were reported as good and the runway was in good condition.

Airport neighbors and locals stopped to remark and take photos of the American Airlines 757 aircraft 653 feet past the end of the runway.  The overrun was immediately picked up on news reports worldwide and reported within an hour live on Fox News Channel and other radio and television outlets.  News reports flourised across the internet.
