Glad everybody was alright. This incident makes it the third aircraft I've flown on to crash/crash land in 18 months.

Bloody hell! What are you, a sceptre of doom or something?  

Think you should give up the flying mate!

It certainly does not look very good for them alright. But, reading the BBC report, im sceptical that this was a crash landing as such. My reading is that it may have been a gear collapse after an otherwise normal landing, which does change things a bit. Just because the pax on board who tweeted used the "crash landing" phrase, does not mean that this is fact what occured.

That said, im sure the authorities will now be watching even more closely. I'm honestly surprised that the Cork accident did not shut them down.

Hehe, well perhaps. Just checking it was actually 12 months; TF-JMB on the 4th March 2011 and LV-CEJ on the 18th May.

Nah, it'll be fine.  Although I find it ironic that, considering I actively fly dubiously old aircraft in some random places, the three aircraft in my log to have encountered incidents are not your typical 'held together with speedtape' types.

Glad everyone was OK, but this is fortunately nothing like the accident in Cork.

It was a Links Air flight, who are are a UK ACMI provider based at Humberside with a good record and reputation.

Has this replaced the L4T or just complemented it on IOM-BLK?

Complemented, sometimes we also get a D228

The L4T operate BLK-IOM-BLK 95% of the time with the JS31 and D228 making up the rest. It's always nice to see something different than the L4T's although I quite enjoyed my trip on them the other year.

Glad to see everyone walked away from this. The photos on Aviation Herald are quite spectacular and certainly looks like a gear collapse on the roll out rather than an actual 'crash landing'.
