Thirty-four occupants of an Icelandic Bombardier Q100 turboprop have escaped uninjured after the aircraft suffered an overrun at Nuuk in Greenland.

The 19-year old aircraft, operated by Air Iceland, suffered a right-hand landing-gear failure during landing, says the carrier.

Images from the scene identify the stricken aircraft as serial number 337, bearing registration TF-JMB.

Air Iceland says the flight left the capital, Reykjavik, at 10:40 and performed a stop in Kulusuk before arriving at Nuuk at 13:30.

It says the gear collapsed and the aircraft ran off the runway before it stopped, it adds. None of the 31 passengers and three crew members was injured.

The Q100 is powered by Pratt & Whitney Canada PW121 engines.

Flightglobal's ACAS database last listed the aircraft involved in the incident as being owned by the carrier.
