• Airbus A320 Gear Collapsed After Hard Landing

  • The aeroplane did not respond to the pilots' commands on the controls to pitch up the aircraft and to reduce the vertical speed on the flare, causing the aircraft to impact against the threshold of the runway in a slight nose-down attitude. Upon impact, the nose landing gear collapsed, but the aircraft remained within the runway and stopped after 1,100 meters of landing run with all four main gear tires burst. An emergency evacuation was carried out. A passenger was a seriously injured and several other occupants received some bruises and injuries produced during the evacuation of the aircraft. The internal structural damages of the airframe were beyond economically viable repair and the aircraft was written off.
