Damages

The plane landed approximately 2000m into the 2900m runway 28, and did not stop until more than 500m beyond the end of the runway. It broke through the airport perimeter fence and rolled onto an active four-lane highway, with some vehicles narrowly escaping a collision and others in the adjacent parking lot being destroyed in the process. The aircraft left a long trail of destruction as it rolled off from the runway.

It sustained substantial damage, losing its CFM56 engines and main landing gear, and fracturing the horizontal stabilizer.

Investigation

Italian air investigation agency ANSV began an inquiry into the accident. The CVR and DFDR were retrieved on the day of the accident. A preliminary report was released on 21st September 2016.
