There was an incident last night at Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport, where a Flybe de Havilland Dash 8 arriving from Edinburgh had a crash landing.

Here’s how the incident is described, per the AvHerald:

A Flybe de Havilland Dash 8-400, registration G-JECP performing flight BE-1284 from Edinburgh,SC (UK) to Amsterdam (Netherlands) with 59 people on board, landed on Amsterdam’s runway 22 at about 16:55L (15:55Z) but came to a stop on the runway with the right main gear collapsed. The crew declared Mayday, Mayday, Mayday reporting the gear had collapsed, they were evacuating onto the runway. Tower reported fire brigades were already on their way and instructed the next arrivals to go around. There were no injuries, the aircraft sustained substantial damage.

A passenger reported the right main gear collapsed upon touch down.

Fortunately no one was seriously injured. What makes this story especially interesting is that there’s footage of the incident, both from the ground and the cabin.

Here’s a view of the landing from the ground:

And here’s a view of the landing from the cabin:

I’m surprised that the impact wasn’t worse when the propellor crashed into the ground. You’d think if that happened at such a high speed the propellor would crack and could potentially make the situation much more dangerous, but it seemed to stay intact.
