Twin Otter hard landing at Kimmirut Print E-mail

Twin Otter hard landing Kimmirut, NUA Kenn Borek Twin Otter had a hard landing at CYLC - Kimmirut, Nunavut, Canada on Tuesday evening December 6, 2011.

The Canadian Transportation Safety Board reports that the landing collapsed the right main gear.  The cargo flight landed around 23:30 UTC (18:30ET) that evening.  The two pilots were the only people on board, and the TSB says they were not injured.

The plane came to rest just off the 1900 foot runway, near the midpoint. Poor weather conditions on December 7th prevented moving the plane. That caused the closure of the airport all day on December 7th. The plane was finally moved late in the afternoon on December 8th, after which the airport was opened.

CBC News has an initial report on the incident here.
