Bombardier DHC-8-311 Dash 8, G-WOWC
After a turbulent ILS approach to Runway 31 at Plymouth Airport the aircraft landed firmly and bounced. During the landing the aircraft’s TOUCH RUNWAY warning light illuminated, indicating that the aircraft’s tail had made contact with the runway. There was no structural damage to the aircraft. The incident occurred through a combination of turbulence, windshear and the pilots’ inappropriate response to reducing airspeed throughout the final 10 seconds of the approach.
