Occurrence Types

Note: This SKYbrary category includes two types of occurrences, notably "Undershoot on Landing" and "Wrong Runway Use", which do not fit the ICAO ADREP definition for a runway excursion. However, their inclusion has been considered appropriate due to the commonality of a number of causal and contributory factors and/or mitigation approaches.
