RAF 146 C3 damaged in landing accident


BAe 146 C3 ZE707 (msn E2188) of the RAF’s 32 (The Royal) Squadron was damaged in a heavy landing at Birmingham on 1 February. She had been arriving from Edinburgh when she apparently ran into wind shear just prior to touchdown, and hit the runway hard, striking her tail. The landing was caught on video. She was taken into the airport’s Hangar 2 for assessment. After temporary repairs, she left Birmingham for Northolt on 24 February.
