Flightline BAe 146 damaged in Firenze

BAe 146-300 G-BPNT of Flightline was damaged while attempting to land at Firenze on 3 June. She encountered severe wind shear when over the threshold. The crew initiated a go-around, but the rear of the fuselage struck the ground. The aircraft went around the circuit and landed safely. As the aircraft had been on a positioning flight for a charter, only the crew were on board. None were injured in the incident. G-BPNT, on the other hand, suffered substantial damage to her rear pressure bulkhead. She is being repaired in Firenze, but is likely to be out of action for some time.
