Accidents & Serious Incidents at or in vicinity of PADU
- SB20, Unalaska AK USA, 2019 (On 17 October 2019, a Saab 2000 overran the landing runway at Unalaska and after exiting the airport perimeter finally came to rest on shoreline rocks. One passenger was killed, one was seriously injured and three others sustained minor injuries. The Investigation has so far established that the overrun occurred after completion of a second approach following a go around from the first after it became unstabilised and that touchdown was made with a tailwind component in excess of 10 knots.)
