That video makes it look like the crew had some problems with the No.2 engine. Great job by the crew.

Any connections with the recent bad weather on Peru? At least everyone are safe and has been evacuated.

The airports elevation is about 11,000ft.

Very easy to misjudge your approach speed, path and vertical speed if you’re not used to such airfields. The accident report will shed some light on it. ;)

Oh no! Not another one! 😬

This is really sad .and the incident is similar to a British airways incident that happened at OR Tambo INTERNATIONAL 2015,when a British airway crash landed due landing gear collapsing on landing ,and everyone on board were safe.

I’m so pleased everyone’s sons, daughters, husbands and wife’s will be coming home tonight.

It’s not that big of a deal. The plane gear collapsed but everyone is safe. Shame for the airline, but hey, whatever.
