It is the IB Bilbao aircraft. As I recall it was not very old at the time of the incident - an extremely heavy landing - which made it uneconomical to repair.
|Quoting DTManiac (Reply 11):|
Has anyone further information regarding that landing incident?
During a nighttime flight from Barcelona to Bilbao, the pilots of Iberia (Iberia Lineas Aereas de Espana) Flight 1456 were planning to land their A320 with 136 passengers and seven crew on Runway 30 at Bilbao's Sondica Airport. As it was a training flight, there were three pilots in the cockpit.
During their final ILS approach, the aircraft encountered heavy turbulence at about 200 feet above the ground (AGL). With gusts up to 65 mph., the winds were much more severe than the 9-10 mph winds at 240? with light turbulence initially reported to the crew. The aircraft encountered a 1.25G updraft, then below 150 ft. the airplane encountered a potent downdraft. The first officer as the pilot flying (PF) pulled back his sidestick to arrest the rate of descent. The downdraft was followed by a tailwind gust as the aircraft was just 70 feet AGL.
The dramatic and sudden shifts in wind direction and intensity are the classic symptoms of windshear. The airport is not equipped with windshear detection technology, although Spanish pilots reportedly have been calling for its installation. The Iberia crew had not been advised previously by local control that three aircraft had tried unsuccessfully to land at Bilbao and had diverted to their planned alternates. Sources advise that the airport's conditions contributed to two other weather-related accidents during the preceding 15 days and to three other accidents in the previous five months.
When the Ground Proximity Warning System (GPWS) alerted the crew with a "Sink rate" warning, the captain called for a go-around while pulling on the sidestick - reportedly without pressing his priority control button.
After landing the nose gear collapsed and the aircraft skidded about 1000m down the runway before coming to a stop.

The side stick priority button
|Quoting HighFlyer9790 (Reply 23):|
in an A320 for example, does the other stick just stay standing up even if the other is moving?
|Quoting MarkusBurkhard (Reply 18):|
They say that Airbus modified the software after that accident so it would be more tolerant in such a situation. But I've never read any confirmed info about that...

I might not be 100% accurate so feel free ot correct me on this.
