(Adds Bombardier comment)
AMSTERDAM Feb 23 The landing gear of a FlyBe
Group airplane collapsed during landing at Amsterdam's
Schiphol on Thursday, causing it to veer off the runway. There
were no injuries, the airport said in a statement.
It was unclear if a heavy storm over the North Sea had
played a role, a spokesman said.
All 59 passengers and crew were brought from the runway to
the terminal by bus, the statement said.
Bombardier Inc spokesman Bryan Tucker said in an
email that FlyBe was operating its Q400 prop plane. “We are
working with the operator (FlyBe) to understand what happened,”
Tucker said. “Our engineering teams are ready to assist.”
