NTSB To Investigate UAL Runway Departure Incident At KJAC

A320 Slid Off Side In Night VMC, Calm Winds

The National Transportation Safety Board dispatched two investigators to Jackson Hole, WY to investigate an incident in which a United Airlines jet veered off the side of a runway.
 
On February 25, 2008, at 2116 MST, an Airbus A320, registration N442UA, operated by United Airlines as flight 267, departed the right side of runway 19 during landing at Jackson Hole Airport. The captain, first officer, four flight attendants and 119 passengers evacuated the aircraft via the emergency slides.

During the evacuation, one of the inflatable slides did not deploy. No serious injuries have been reported. 

The airplane departed Denver at 1944 MST with the intended destination of Jackson Hole. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed during the nighttime landing. The reported weather at the airport about the time of the incident was wind calm, visibility of 10 miles, and overcast clouds at 3200 feet above the ground.

The airplane came to rest on its landing gear at about a 90 degree angle to the runway in snow about three feet deep. An initial examination of the aircraft revealed no readily visible signs of structural damage or evidence of fire.

The captain and first officer have both been interviewed by Safety Board investigators. The cockpit voice recorder (CVR) and flight data recorder (FDR) were removed from the aircraft and sent to the NTSB headquarters in Washington where they will be read out.

Investigators are expected to remain on-scene for several days as they continue their documentation of the incident.
