WIX landing gear collapse

Postby M Hayli » Tue Dec 17, 2013 8:05 pm

Piper Saratoga VH- WIX had its right main landing gear collapse on arrival at Darwin around 1515 local today. The aircraft veered right off the runway, coming to rest just off the sealed surface facing south. All four people on board exited the aircraft safely. Runway 36 was available for arrivals and departures and runway 11 east of taxiway B was available for departures. While the aircraft remained in the runway strip for a significant amount of time, minimal delays to other aircraft occurred, except Jetstar 81, who diverted to Tindal.
