Southwest Airlines flight 278 was a Boeing 737-700 that overran Runway 8 at Hollywood Burbank Airport in Burbank, California while flying through a storm.[1] . The aircraft rolled over the end of the runway before coming to a rest in the Engineered materials arrestor system or EMAS which was placed at the end of the runway following the crash of Southwest Airlines Flight 1455.Engineered materials arrestor system#Incidents


Southwest Airlines flight 278 is a flight from Boise, Idaho to Burbank, California with a stopover in Oakland, California that takes place every 1 or 2 days. At 8:10 AM Pacific Standard Time[2] the plane took off from Oakland International Airport and climbed to its cruising altitude. While approaching the airport the aircraft encountered heavy rains and moderate winds.[3] The plane was cleared for an ILS approach on Runway 8 at Hollywood Burbank Airport. While over the runway the final report on wind was a ten knot tailwind.[4] Less than 30 seconds after touchdown the plane exited the runway on the left side and came to a stop in the Engineered materials arrestor system about 120 feet from a busy road. The plane was evacuated safely with no injuries. 18 years earlier Southwest Airlines Flight 1455 overran the same runway and landed on the road, just next to a gas stationSouthwest Airlines Flight 1455
