After the accident, the NTSB disagreed with their calculations, showing that the airplane would definitely go off the end, given the conditions and the touchdown point, which was with 4,500 feet of runway remaining. The runway is 6,522 feet long with 5,826 available for landing because of a displaced threshold. Further, if the glideslope is followed to the runway there is but 4,925 feet available for stopping. Where the media led the public to believe that the crew gave away 2,000 feet of the runway, that was, as are so many things in the media, incorrect. It was a fairly normal touchdown point.
