Narrative:The 7,300-hour captain was unable to maintain directional control of the twin turbojet airplane while landing on Runway 04 during day VMC conditions with winds from 130 degrees at 17 knots. The 13,502-feet-long, by 300-feet-wide-grooved runway was reported as dry at the time of the mishap.

Examination of the airplane by maintenance personnel did not reveal any discrepancies in the fuel transfer system.
