Jetstream 4100, G-MAJA
The aircraft departed from Hamburg Airport with an overloaded baggage compartment and with the centre of gravity outside the aft limit of the operating company’s approved aircraft flight envelope, although it was within the manufacturer’s less restrictive envelope. On landing at Manchester Airport in benign weather conditions, an oscillation in yaw developed which the pilot was unable to correct through use of the rudder or nose wheel steering (NWS). After several cycles the oscillations rapidly became divergent and the aircraft veered off the runway, coming to a halt on the grass approximately 80 m from the runway centreline.
