Reuters has a brief item not saying what type of plane but say 'small.'

It has burst into flames after sliding off the runway. 16 pax on board.

No further details I'm afraid.

RCC in Stavanger confirms Atlantic Airways.

Looks like it went off the end of RWY33.

I hope the fire did not start right away, if so I fear the worst. The terrain is really steep at the crash site.

Blimey those pics look grim. Reuters quoting a spokesman for the southern Norway reescue centre (didn't know there was such a beast) as saying its not clear if the pax and crew got out.

Fingers crossed that they did.

12 survivors, from what is shown in those pictures, is amazing! Sympathy to those who died and their families.

A2QFI, there is still a possibility of more survivors as it appears(I am getting translations from My Norwegian Collegues) that several of the survivors were picked up at sea and there is hope of more being picked up, lets just hope and pray at the moment.

Someone must have been watching over them, I'm astonished that so many got out. As you can see from the images, the terrain around the rwy is rough. I see another push by the CAA to get full size RESA at more of the short-ish airports.

On NRK Television now:

RCC for Southern Norway in Stavanger confirms 13 surviviors, 3 missing.

Video now of the incident from Norwegian TV:
http://www1.nrk.no/nett-tv/klipp/195354

One person very badly injured and all are being treated in nearby hospital.

Norwegian press report aircraft was BAE-146/200. Unconfirmed by Atlantic.

According to Atlantic they have three -200s.

aircrash in Stord, Norway.

Non-precision approach only at Stord, circa 1500 metres of runway, from the photos it looks like low stratus in the vicinity, not a good recipe.

Metar etc för Stord with satbild

http://weather.gladstonefamily.net/site/ENSO

(Now sitting in the dark here, since the electric has been taken off for fixing fault.. running on UPSes).

Media report this is not the first crash at the airport but they are not suggesting anything untoward. In 1998 nine persons died with a Cessna crash (sadly also working for Aker Stord). Another (tabloid) reporting that a month or so ago another Atlantic plane with 100 pax needed to make an emergency landing in Bergen due to brake concerns. Again one should not draw any parallels or make conclusion.

Avro on the tarmac

That video clip is showing a 146 on the tarmac away from the flames at the end of the RWY. Does anybody know if there were supposed to be two 146's that were chartered? And the news are saying there were four crew members onboard. According to their web page Atlantic operate with 6 crew members.
