Polish freight carrier Exin has suffered a second Antonov An-26 accident in Estonia in the space of just five months.

One of the operator's aircraft suffered a landing-gear collapse at Tallinn Airport today.

Estonian rescue sources state that the accident occurred at 19:56 as the aircraft prepared for departure to Helsinki.

Four occupants were on board the twin-engined aircraft, identified as bearing the registration SP-FDP.

In mid-March this year an Exin An-26 landed on the frozen surface of Lake Ulemiste while attempting an approach to Tallinn.
