Boeing B747 Runway Overrun After Captain Cancels Go around Part 2

This is a more detailed document of the australian registered Boeing 747 which overran the runway in Bangkok airport, Thailand (see above). The B747 was configured for a dry-runway landing when heavy rain occurred on final approach. The captain told the first officer (the pilot flying) to go around but then retarded the throttle levers when the main landing gear touched the runway. The airplane was substantially damaged. None of the occupants was injured seriously during the approach-and landing accident, but the delay in evacuation of the aircraft focused attention on improving training for emergencies.
