Top shots of Blue Islands ATR gear collapse

Thanks to Graham Hocquard who runs the Jersey Airport blog for this selection of pictures from last weekend’s little incident at the Channel Island airport where an ATR 42 operated by Blue Islands suffered a collapse of its landing gear while taxiing to the gate. The aircraft in question – G-DRFC (yes, there’s a Doncaster Rovers link) – is a 1986 airframe, MSN007, ‘previously enjoyed’ by Cimber Sterling, among others. No-one was hurt in the incident and the aircraft was later recovered and the gear replaced. it has yet to re-enter service. More of Graham’s pics are on his Flickr stream – which is at www.flickr.com/photos/jersey-airport
