An Embraer EMB-145EP passenger plane, UR-DNK, sustained substantial damage in a landing accident at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport (SVO), Russia.
The airplane was arriving from Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine with the copilot being the Pilot Flying. The approach was flown with flaps at 22°
During the landing roll on runway 25R at Sheremetyevo, the airplane did not decelerate as expected. The pilot flying used the emergency braking system without any noticeable effect. At a ground speed of 70 kts the end of the runway was approaching. The pilot flying attempted to use a high speed turn off but the airplane ground looped and ran off the paved surface. The main landing gear collapsed.
Skidded off the runway while taxiing to the terminal after landing, main landing gear collapsed. Gear brakes failure is suspected to cause the incident.
