Many Happy Returns
We want our return to the airport to be as happy as our departure. We all know that takeoffs are optional but landings are mandatory. Far too many landings end up off the runway. Sometimes these excursions happen when an airplane departs the side of a runway and some happen when the airplane runs off the end. Serious injury or death from runway excursions is not common but does occur. Costly damage to the airplane and sometimes to airport facilities is however a frequent result of runway excursions.
