Avro 146-RJ100, G-CFAH
The first officer had stabilised the aircraft on an ILS approach, at night, to Runway 10. At 400 ft the commander sighted the runway lights, took control in accordance with the Operator’s procedures and disconnected the autopilot and autothrottle. During the landing flare the rate of descent appeared to be high and the commander corrected this by increasing the pitch attitude. The aircraft touched down at a body angle that exceeded the safe limit, causing the underside of the rear fuselage to contact the runway surface.
