Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
A Boeing B747-400F freighter aircraft landing on runway 02L at Singapore Changi Airport veered to the right side of the runway when trying to vacate the runway via rapid exit taxiway W3. The right wing gear, right body gear and the nose gear went onto the grass area momentarily.
The flight crew managed to steer the aircraft back to the runway and taxied to its parking bay.

Many wheels and part of the brake systems were damaged. Some mud was ingested into the No.3 engine and damaged one fan blade. Two runway edge lights and four threshold lights were damaged.

The Air Accident Investigation Bureau of Singapore classified this occurrence as an incident. The investigation revealed that the aircraft did not decelerate to a low enough speed for the aircraft to turn off at taxiway W3. And when, despite the relatively high speed, the nose gear steering tiller was applied, the aircraft did start to turn but the inertia of the aircraft also caused the aircraft to skid, resulting in the aircraft’s excursion off the runway.
