Passengers shaken but unhurt after Manx2 flight emergency

A Manx2 flight had some difficulty upon landing at Ronaldsway this evening, sparking an emergency services operation.

It came to rest on the grass just to the side of the runway shortly before 6pm.

The 12 passengers and two crew were all safely escorted from the plane, with no serious injuries reported, although they were shaken by the incident.

A photograph taken by one of the passengers and posted on Twitter appears to show the undercarriage on the right-hand side had given way, causing it to lean heavily once it had come to rest.

The plane is operated by Links Air, on behalf of Manx2 and had flown from Leeds Bradford Airport.

Airport Director Ann Reynolds has given Manx Radio the following update:
