The plane managed to land in Margarita Island (PMV) without any serious incident. No injuries reported.

The captain had reported landing gear problems after taking off. It was circling the island in order to burn fuel for the emergency landing.

Thank God passengers are alright. I heard the news on the radio and they were asking some PMV's security employee. He said aircraft's registration is YV-1003  eyebrow . No "C" whatsoever. I guess he was referring to V0's second Dash-7, right? Does anybody know the actual registration of the aircraft?

How does one perform a belly landing safely on a high-winged aircraft?

Im suprised at their use of the Dash7 in the first place. Surely a Dash 8 or ATR would have been better suited, faster and more economic and reliable than the old and slow Dash 7.

The runway at Margarita is long so the Dash7 STOL capabilities cant have been a detrmining factor.

If ConViasa is to become a true force in the Country it needs to have a reputation for reliability from the outset.

Well....we can rely on their pilots being able to do a belly landing.....I guess thats something positive, right?

Funny that you have to find a Norwegian newspaper to see a video.

Stupendous maneuver, well done Conviasa. It would have been bad publicity for a new airline to start with an fatal accident.


I wish that all skies were orange and blue!!

They showed it on CBC news this evening but it was a very brief clip. They cut it off even before the plane came to a stop. Not a true belly landing as the left main and nosegear were down.

I saw the video on Univision, during the evening news. from what it look like the right main landing gear wasnt down. The airplane came to a stop when it almost made a 180 degree turn. It look like it went off the runway.

Well, Conviasa started in November 2004 with this dash 7 which was transfered from the Venezuelan Navy Air force. I guess they took what they had available in order to form this government owned commercial airline and then improve and increase its fleet (which they have been doing somehow).
