The remains of the American Airlines 737-800 (reg N977AN) that ran off the end of the runway at Kingston, Jamaica two days were moved to a hangar this past weekend. Thankfully, someone with a camera was around to document the damage, and even better, someone posted them on the NYCAviation Forums this afternoon.

Here are a few of the photos, with a link to more:

Jamaican investigators revealed today that the plane had already used up nearly half of the runway’s 8,900 feet of stopping distance before touching down with a 17mph tailwind during a rain storm on Dec. 22nd. Furthermore, it bounced upon wheels down, wasting several hundred more feet of precious braking real estate, and the plane was still rolling at 72mph when it ran off the end of the runway.
