Aircraft Incident Report: Runway Overrun, American Airlines Flight 2253, Boeing 757-200, N668AA, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, December 29, 2010

This report discusses the December 29, 2010, incident involving American Airlines flight 2253, a Boeing 757-200, N668AA, which ran off the departure end of runway 19 and came to a stop in deep snow after landing at Jackson Hole Airport, Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The occupants were not injured, and the airplane sustained minor damage. Safety issues identified in this incident include the following: inadequate pilot training for recognition of a situation in which the speedbrakes do not automatically deploy as expected after landing, lack of an alert to warn pilots when speedbrakes have not automatically deployed during the landing roll, lack of guidance for pilots of certain Boeing airplanes to follow when an unintended thrust reverser lockout occurs, lack of pilot training for multiple emergency and abnormal situations, and lack of pilot training emphasizing monitoring skills and workload management. As a result of this investigation, three new safety recommendations are issued and three existing safety recommendations are reiterated to the Federal Aviation Administration.
