Avro RJ100, HB-IYU


The commander was carrying out an ILS approach to Runway 28 at London City Airport, with the approach stabilised from the glideslope capture at 3,000 ft. At between 50 and 30 ft above the runway the pilots felt the aircraft ‘dropping’ and the commander, who was the pilot flying, pulled back on the control column to prevent a hard landing. The pitch attitude of the aircraft increased to a maximum of 9.3° and the lower aft fuselage briefly contacted the runway, causing significant damage.
