ANZ DH8C at Timaru on Feb 7th 2024, rejected takeoff results in runway overrun
Last Update: February 11, 2024 / 15:32:35 GMT/Zulu time
The airline reported the crew rejected takeoff over concerns due to bird activity around the aerodrome. The aircraft stopped on the runway and will remain there until procedures are being completed.
New Zealand's CAA reported they have been notified about the occurrence and have in turn notified New Zealand's TAIC (Transport Accident Investigation Commission).
New Zealand's TAIC stated they have opened an inquiry into the occurrence stating that the aircraft aborted an attempted takeoff at speed and stopped at the end of the runway.
ADS-B data suggest that the aircraft's nose gear may have gone past the runway end onto soft ground.
Timaru unattended aerodrome features a runway 02/20 with an ASDA of 1280 meters/4200 feet. The aerodrome chart contains a note: "CAUTION: Bird hazard. Birds seasonally on aerodrome and larger number present on the outlying fields when irrigation or cultivation taking place."
