UTAir flight 797 ran off the runway on landing.
Before landing, the crew did not have time to select the flaps to the landing position of 40; the landing was performed with the flaps at 15.
The cause of the serious incident was the aircraft crew's failure to maintain the estimated planning speed and altitudes in the configuration with the flaps extended at 15, which resulted in the aircraft landing at 1000 feet, 500 feet relative to the runway end, in an unstabilized position (no landing gear extended; landing speed overstated for the 15 flap position). As a result, the aircraft, at increased speed and considerable altitude (92 feet, instead of the established 50 feet), entered the runway, made a landing with significant overflight, and rolled out of the runway.
