Dash8 Gear Collapse At CPH

Media says that a Dash8-Q400 just had an incident at CPH.

http://politiken.dk/indland/article407463.ece (in Danish, sorry)

This is the third gear collapse with the Dash8-Q400 for SK since Sept. 9. I guess the fleet has to be grounded again!

Not good for SAS.

40 pax + 4 crew on board. No one was hurt.

Flight was SK 2868 from Bergen. Right gear collapsed upon landing around 4.53 PM GMT+1.

Still one runway open at CPH. Delays expected.

Unbelievable! How on earth is it possible after all the SK Q400's got checked.
Will SK ground them again?
Fortunately everbody is ok, but how long will this continue to go on?

From SAS website

SAS operates on a full traffic program
Our Dash 8/Q400 aircraft have been inspected, tested and approved by the authorities and are now returning to normal operation. However, a small number of flights will be operated by other airlines for the time being.

SAS regrets any inconveniences caused by the cancellations from the 12th of September to the 14th of October.

Alex!!!

The problem is getting suitable replacement aircraft within a reasonable time.

However I can see SAS now will demand an even bigger compensation from Bombardier after they have sold SAS a crap product and I can definately see this ending up in court

Why not return the 400's to Bombardier for new ones? Other airlines are not experiencing similar problems with the latest 400's.

158 B747forever : Really hope so. That would be good for SAS. But SAS has now been well-known about accidents. That is not good at all.

168 B747forever : This has happened in MUC and with ANA and in South Korea. It is not just happening SAS.
