Futura 737-800 Accident At Shannon

Fri Dec 01, 2000 2:02 am

According to reports, a Futura 738 suffered a nosegear collapse on landing at EINN and it's now lying with its nose off the end of the runway (06 end) and its tail in the air.

Apart from that, the landing went okay.

(It happened at about 7-8am this morning, LT, and SNN has been closed for some time).
