Airbus A321-211, G-DHJH
During a landing at Manchester Airport the aircraft was not flared sufficiently and a ‘hard’ landing, categorised as ‘severe hard’ occurred. The possibility of a landing parameter exceedance was not reported by the crew following discussion with ground engineers who had been on the flight. The presence of a landing parameter exceedance report was identified after a further two sectors had been flown, when an unrelated inspection of the landing gear found a crack in a wing rib gear support lug. Four safety recommendations have been made.
