Embraer 120 runway excursion and gear collapse, followed by second one 6 hours later.

Both at the same airport, first one main gear collapse, second one a nose gear collapse and hit a building, short film clip in the link.

The Unity Air Zanzibar Embraer EMB-120 with registration 5H-MJH was involved in the first incident. It was operating a flight from Zanzibar to Kikoboga with 30 passengers and three crew onboard. However, while on approach to the airport, the crew reported problems with the landing gear. Upon landing the right-hand main landing gear, veered off the runway, and came to a stop on soft ground aside from the runway.

In another incident that happened six hours later, a Sindbard Air Embraer EMB-120, with registration 5H-FLM was operating a flight from Kikoboga to Zanzibar with 30 passengers and three crew. While it was accelerating for takeoff, the aircraft suffered a nose gear collapse, veered off the runway, and collided with a building with its right-hand wing before coming to a complete stop.

On the first picture, the wing you can see on the left of the building in the background is the second aircraft with the nose gear collapse.

Shades of the Channel Airways two HS748 overruns at Portsmouth in August 1967. They managed to achieve that just two hours apart though.
