27 March 2008

The Australian ATSB released a preliminary report of their investigation into the February 7, 2008 accident involving a Boeing 717. During an ILS approach to runway 29 at Darwin Airport, the aircraft touched down on the runway at a high rate of descent which resulted in a hard landing. The aircraft then bounced before settling onto the runway. The crew completed the landing rollout and taxied the aircraft to the terminal without further incident. (ATSB)
