Flight landed at abq runway 17 and rolled across runway 26 and was instructed to clear at taxiway east. If not possible, 180 degree turn and then exit on taxiway east. The copilot was flying during the landing and the captain was working the radios. During the tower's instructions, the captain took over the controls for taxi (company procedure) and the copilot took over the radios and after landing checklist. While taxiing, the copilot, upon finishing the checklist, noticed that we had missed east and were crossing runway 8-26 (an active runway) too late to stop, and notified tower to the effect and asked further instructions. There were military aircraft on final practicing approachs, however none were close to landing and no evasive action was required on any part. The captain had been on duty 8 hours and flown 2 hours, including 4 takeoffs and lndgs. The copilot had been on duty 2 hours. The captain had worked 4 10-hour days in a row. This could have been averted by more vigilance on the copilot's part in not assuming the captain ad heard the taxi instructions. This was also the last flight of the day and the aircraft was headed for the hangar, which is off taxiway a north of runway 8-26 and the usual procedure is a 180 degree turn cross runway 8, turn on 1. East is south of 8-26. This is a possible contributor to the incident, since the captain may have thought the clearance was the usual one through selective hearing and did mention that. Another factor was that there was only 1 controller in the tower at the time working grd, tower and approach, and if he was watching the aircraft on approach, his back would have been turned our way, thus unable to notice our missed turn.
Original NASA ASRS Text
Title: ACR MDT UNAUTH RWY CROSSING AFTER LNDG.
Narrative: FLT LANDED AT ABQ RWY 17 AND ROLLED ACROSS RWY 26 AND WAS INSTRUCTED TO CLR AT TXWY E. IF NOT POSSIBLE, 180 DEG TURN AND THEN EXIT ON TXWY E. THE COPLT WAS FLYING DURING THE LNDG AND THE CAPT WAS WORKING THE RADIOS. DURING THE TWR'S INSTRUCTIONS, THE CAPT TOOK OVER THE CTLS FOR TAXI (COMPANY PROC) AND THE COPLT TOOK OVER THE RADIOS AND AFTER LNDG CHKLIST. WHILE TAXIING, THE COPLT, UPON FINISHING THE CHKLIST, NOTICED THAT WE HAD MISSED E AND WERE XING RWY 8-26 (AN ACTIVE RWY) TOO LATE TO STOP, AND NOTIFIED TWR TO THE EFFECT AND ASKED FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS. THERE WERE MIL ACFT ON FINAL PRACTICING APCHS, HOWEVER NONE WERE CLOSE TO LNDG AND NO EVASIVE ACTION WAS REQUIRED ON ANY PART. THE CAPT HAD BEEN ON DUTY 8 HRS AND FLOWN 2 HRS, INCLUDING 4 TKOFS AND LNDGS. THE COPLT HAD BEEN ON DUTY 2 HRS. THE CAPT HAD WORKED 4 10-HR DAYS IN A ROW. THIS COULD HAVE BEEN AVERTED BY MORE VIGILANCE ON THE COPLT'S PART IN NOT ASSUMING THE CAPT AD HEARD THE TAXI INSTRUCTIONS. THIS WAS ALSO THE LAST FLT OF THE DAY AND THE ACFT WAS HEADED FOR THE HANGAR, WHICH IS OFF TXWY A N OF RWY 8-26 AND THE USUAL PROC IS A 180 DEG TURN CROSS RWY 8, TURN ON 1. E IS S OF 8-26. THIS IS A POSSIBLE CONTRIBUTOR TO THE INCIDENT, SINCE THE CAPT MAY HAVE THOUGHT THE CLRNC WAS THE USUAL ONE THROUGH SELECTIVE HEARING AND DID MENTION THAT. ANOTHER FACTOR WAS THAT THERE WAS ONLY 1 CTLR IN THE TWR AT THE TIME WORKING GRD, TWR AND APCH, AND IF HE WAS WATCHING THE ACFT ON APCH, HIS BACK WOULD HAVE BEEN TURNED OUR WAY, THUS UNABLE TO NOTICE OUR MISSED TURN.
