Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
A Robin R3000/160 overshot the runway at Bad Ragaz Airfield (LSZE), St Gall, and came to rest in an afforestation.
Both occupants were not injured.

The accident in which the powered aircraft overran the wet hard-surface runway and collided with obstacles was due to the fact that the pilot selected an approach speed that was too high, resulting in a long landing. He refrained from a go around because he was not aware of the low reserves in relation to the landing distance.
