Feb 01 2011


The undercarriage of a light aircraft collapsed as it landed at Jersey Airport.

The plane - which was en route from Exeter to Guernsey was diverted to Jersey as a result of weather conditions at Guernsey Airport.

On landing it veered onto grass next to the runway where it came to rest.

The runway was temporarily closed until 1415 GMT while fire crews and airport recovery services removed the damaged plane.

Jersey Airport spokesman Alan Donald said there was one passenger on board the Cessna 330 who was not injured.

BBC Jersey reporter Nafisa Sayani, who was at the airport waiting for a flight, said a number of flights were cancelled and delayed and some incoming flights were diverted.
