A plane Passaredo (prefix PTB-2231), with capacity for 50 people skidded twice on the runway while trying to land at the airport Otacílio Pedro de Figueiredo, Vitória da Conquista (to 509 km from Salvador) at around 14:40 this Wednesday Thursday, 25. Two people had minor injuries and were rescued by a team of Mobile Service Emergency (Samu).
According to initial information, the landing gear of the ERJ, Embraer did not open forcing the landing on his belly. With the impact on the ground, one of the turbines came on fire but was extinguished by the Fire Department. Because of the accident, the runway is interdicted.

Quoting LipeGIG (Reply 4): They had their first accident with victims with one of their planes
they had their first fatal jet accident in China. Their propellor types 110 Bandeirante and 120 Brasilia had their fair share of fatal accidents.
Also they had a135 bizjet cut off the GOL 737 wing over Brazil in 2007, although that technically doesn't count as fatalities on their aircraft.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

I would hazard a guess that the aircraft is a write-off. As Asema states, it seems as though the aircraft came in short and hit the dirt embankment just before the stripes. I wonder if it may have even clipped the road since the aircraft came to a stop so soon down the runway.
