DHC-8-402 Dash 8, G-FLBD


The aircraft was on the final approach to Runway 11 at Chania Airport. The crew were carrying out a visual approach using the VOR/DME altitude/range crosschecks to verify the vertical profile. The first 800 metres of the runway was not available and late in the approach the commander, who was the pilot flying, realised that he was positioned for the normal touchdown zone and not the displaced threshold. He adjusted the approach to land at the correct touchdown point.
