The Channel Express Fokker F27 Mk 600 freighter (G-CHNL) which crashed approaching the airport at Guernsey in the Channel Islands, appears to have hit the ground with a nose-up attitude and little forward speed. Both pilots were killed. The occurred at 17.10 on 12 January at the end of a newspaper flight from London Luton to Guernsey, when the aircraft was on approach to runway 27. The F27 came down about 500m (1,640ft) from the threshold. Conditions were gusty with possible windshear, and witnesses report an increase in engine power just before the aircraft entered a flat, curving descent to impact.
