Passengers on a Continental connection flight were treated to a bumpy arrival Sunday afternoon after the plane's landing gear gave way while on approach to Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport.
Upon landing on the runway, the right main landing gear on the Gulfstream Beach 1900 commuter airplane collapsed, causing the plane to rest on its side.
None of the 23 passengers including two pilots and one flight attendant were injured.
The flight originated in the Bahamas and was making a scheduled landing.
The runway used during the landing is closed and an investigation is underway.

What I'm assuming is that there were 20 passengers (one an infant in an adult's lap), plus the crew of 3.

Umm..quick question....Why is an airport spokes person SO STUPID! Maybe they should only take comments for airline spokes people!
|Quoting SkyexRamper (Reply 9):|
Surely a spokes person for Gulfstream International would know that there is no F/A onboard their 1900Ds.

What I really wish they'd put on those planes is a bathroom...

I have seen two pilots and a woman that would appear to be a FA deplane several times
|Quoting Skyexramper (Reply 15):|
Was she maybe a dispatcher or someone from the flight training department do a ride along

In the US I have not seen a Lav on the Be-1900.

advance problem needs to divert to MIA with plenty of concrete not being used...similar to the DCA goes to IAD rule.
