Did you mean Coromandel Airport or an accident on the Coromandel Pen.? CAA website mentions a Lance landing wheels up at UN.

During the Air BP Great Northern Air Race (plug for the sponsors, and yes it was GREAT) there was talk of an incident somewhere on the coromandels on Jan. 25 or 26th.
It may show up in the CAA's next weekly report - I just wanted to know if anyone had heard of the incident.
