An ATR-72-500 received substantial damage when its undercarriage collapsed after a very rough landing where it bounced about four times before veering right off the runway into a small sand pile near the end of the runway. The ends of the blades of the starboard propeller sheered off upon striking the sand pile and penetrated the fuselage.


I was a passenger on the plane.


The photo was taken immediately after the crash at Thandwe airport on the 17th Feb, 2012.
