Embraer 170 Makes Crash Landing

Wed Aug 20, 2003 2:51 am

Seems that the number 4 test aircraft made a gear up landing at the Gaviao Peixoto test centre a couple of days back. A bit bent by the sounds of it.

Didn't they have an almost-crash earlier this year, too?

There was an incident where one of the prototype aircraft ran off-runway during wet-surface tests, and was damaged.
