Pilots and atc should really be more cautious about letting planes land in heavy thunderstorms. And there were heavy thunderstorms at the time of this incident!

If I am not mistaken the engines are designed to break away in cases like this? I thought I read that when it was mentioned about the one in Mexico.

Video from inside.

If you look in that video, the plane was left of the centerline before touchdown, and nearly off the runway when the main gears made contact with the runway.

Weather looks bad too

The fact that they landed quite far on the runway,I think this is pilot error as it should had been a go-around

Most likely otherwise I assume the wing would get ripped off or the plane could flip.

I hear two different stories. One says the plane overshot the runway, and the other says it skidded off the runway

Well do you mean overshot or overran? Because they mean two very different things as overran is where the plane touches down but does not stop in time and overshot is where it crashes past the runway

The site is saying it overshot
