Plane 'tail scrape' landing investigated on Isle of Man
Air safety inspectors are investigating why a plane's tail scraped along the runway as it landed on the Isle of Man.
Details have just emerged about the incident at Ronaldsway Airport on 22 December.
Flight BE-821 from Manchester, which had 70 passengers on board, scraped runway 26 at the airport.
A spokesman for the Air Accident Investigation Bureau (AAIB) said it was "investigating the incident via correspondence".
The Stobart Air ATR-72 plane has operated on behalf of Flybe since September.
A spokesman for Stobart Air - formerly Aer Arann - said the airline "confirmed the aircraft did incur a minor tail scrape" on landing in the Isle of Man.
He added: "Following an engineering inspection of the strike plates, the aircraft was released for service."
