Beschrijving:
After a flight from London the night approach to Glasgow's Renfrew Airport was normal. When full visual reference was obtained at about 1,000 ft, the captain took over the controls and at 800 ft the aircraft was well established on the VASI glide path. There was moderate to heavy rain, and the windscreen wipers and landing lights were on and working satisfactorily. Just as power was about to be reduced for the landing, the aircraft struck the runway in a level, or slightly nosewheel first, attitude, and bounced into the air again. Power was left on, and attempts were made to maintain a level attitude but the aircraft twice more struck the runway heavily, nosewheel first, before landing on the main undercarriage.
The nosewheels were then lowered to the ground and, after the application of reverse thrust and light braking, the aircraft stopped
at the end of the runway. During a turn, preparatory to back-tracking along the runway, the nosewheel collapsed.
