Exclamation ATR-72 emr landing at BOH

11.10.00 -Diverted plane (G-BYTP) in crash-land drama
Jersey Evening Post/This is Jersey Report:-

"A plane travelling to Jersey with 40 passengers and four crew members on board crash-landed at Bournemouth International Airport last night. The nose wheel of the ATR 72 plane collapsed as it landed on the airport’s rain swept runway at 8.30 pm. No one was seriously injured but a pregnant woman, who had been accompanied by a friend and her two children, was taken to Poole General Hospital as a precaution. The UK airport was closed last night and an investigation into the crash has been launched by the Air Accident Investigation Branch. The aircraft, operated by CityFlyer Express, a British Airways subsidiary, was en route from Gatwick to Jersey when it was diverted from the Island because of strong crosswinds. It headed back to Gatwick, but that airport had been closed because of an incident in which a Boeing carrying 146 people had slid off the runway and into mud. The CityFlyer plane diverted to Bournemouth instead. A full-scale emergency operation began following the crash and six fire engines and five special appliances rushed to the scene. Fire-fighters sprayed the plane to prevent an explosion. The unhurt passengers were taken to a hotel in Bournemouth for the night and were due to arrive back in the Island today."

Unless this is an astonishing coincidence, this story is actually nearly a year old. I think that this relates to an incident round about December last year that was fully covered at that time.

Yes,

It happened on October 10th last year. The aircraft's now been back in service for about 5 months or so after being put back into an aeroplane shape and the Captain of the flight had very sadly since passed away (not directly related to the actual incident). RIP.

Can't understand why the news clipping has been published here, unless to highlight the fact that the accident report is also out today.
