A 737-400 operated by Comair on behalf of British Airways sustained severe damage in a landing accident in Johannesburg, South Africa on Monday (October 26).

Flight BA6234 came to a halt after the left side of its landing gear collapsed, causing the aircraft to skid on its left engine nacelle and wingtip along the runway at Johannesburg-O.R. Tambo International Airport.

The flight, which departed from Port Elizabeth, reportedly experienced the failure shortly after landing.

The aircraft’s 94 passengers and six crew members onboard escaped unscathed. Comair has confirmed that the crew noticed an “unusual vibration” during usual landing procedures, and the event followed just minutes later.
