Halla Airlines Embraer 120 plane crash
The Embraer EMB-120 operated by Halla Airline took off Garowe, Puntland, for a passenger flight to Mogadishu (Somalia). 30 passengers and 4 crewmembers were onboard. When the aircraft landed on Mogadishu's airport, the left main gear collapsed causing the aircraft to veer left off the runway, pivoted to the left at almost 180° until it crashed against the perimeter fence, coming to rest broken in two. One occupant received minor injuries.
Meteorological conditions at the time of the accident indicate good visibility but 17 kts winds from 210°. The aircraft landed on runway 05, thus getting a 16 kts tailwind during landing. Such a high tailwind means high ground speed during landing.
