From the Manx radio website:

There has been another emergency at the Isle of Man's airport this lunchtime
(Fri) with a FlyBe Embraer 190 aircraft reported to have veered off the runway.

Early suggestions are that it is a jet aircraft and there may be some damage to a wing.

A full emergency response was instituted with crews attending from Douglas, Castletown and Port Erin. Ambulances at the scene dealt with two casualties.

Eyewitnesses have described emergency escape chutes being deployed, although it is believed that most passengers have now disembarked safely.

Do you have to put crash in the title if you don't know what happened? This is ridiculous sensationalism of the worst kind, whatever happened.

Why do we put up with these threads?

And from IOM online site:

EMERGENCY services have been called to an incident at Isle of Man Airport.
It is understood to involve a plane belonging to Flybe and emergency slides have been deployed. Passengers are stood nearby on the grass.

Ambulance operations manager Ray Beattie said emergency services were deployed at just after 1pm after receiving reports of an aircraft coming in to land with smoke in the cockpit.

There were no reports of any casualties.

Flights out of the airport are being delayed.

The road is closed between the Whitestone pub in Ballasalla and Janet's Corner in Castletown.

Embraer 190 aircraft ... Early suggestions are that it is a jet aircraft
We've been hearing such suggestions ever since it was designed

From BBC:

Flybe plane in emergency landing

An investigation is under way after an aircraft was forced to make an emergency landing in Jersey. The Flybe flight from London Gatwick was on its final approach when the pilot declared an emergency.
The alarm was raised on Friday evening when a flight attendant told the captain she could smell smoke in the aircraft.
The States fire service and the airport fire service were put on full standby, but the aircraft landed safely.

Latest from Isle of Man online...

"A FLYBE flight between Manchester and Belfast had to make an emergency landing at Isle of Man Airport.
It involved Flybe's Manchester to Belfast City flight making an emergency diversion to the Isle of Man after the crew thought they could smell smoke.

There were 89 passengers on board, who had to escape via the emergency chutes.

A Flybe spokesman said: 'The aircraft, an Embraer 195, made an emergency descent into the Isle of Man Airport as a precautionary measure, landing at 13.17.

'Upon landing all passengers were disembarked as quickly as possible.

'The likely cause of the incident seems to be a failure of the air conditioning and circulation system.

'Flybe is arranging for all passengers to complete their journey to Belfast as quickly as possible and the runway has now re-opened.

'Flybe can confirm it has had no other similar incidents with any of its E195 fleet.'

An emergency services spokesman said: 'There were four minor casualties treated on scene and not taken to hospital and one female taken to hospital.'

Ambulance operations manager Ray Beattie said emergency services were deployed at just after 1pm after receiving reports of an aircraft coming in to land with smoke in the cockpit.

There were no reports of any casualties.

Flights out of the airport are being delayed.

The road by the airport was initially closed, but has now reopened."

Sounds like it was a textbook operation. Well done to all involved.

Apparently one of the cabin crew suffered a minor injury going down the chute. Don'tcha love 'em? You give 'em a chance to have some fun and they manage to steal the scene.

Flight deck windows still closed as far as it is possible to see from the pics, so pilots appear to have chosen to evacuate down the slides along with all the cabin occupants.
