Flight NM309 suffered a landing accident at Ronaldsway Airport, Isle of Man. The starboard undercarriage collapsed on landing, causing the airplane to swerve off the side of the runway. There were no injuries. According to the AAIB accident report:

"The aircraft’s right main landing gear failed as it landed on Runway 26 at Isle of Man Airport. The right main landing gear detached, the aircraft slid along the runway on its remaining landing gear, right wingtip and luggage pannier before coming to rest on the grass adjacent to the runway. The passengers and crew vacated the aircraft without injury.

The right landing gear failed as a result of intergranular corrosion / stress corrosion cracking of the forward yoke pintle. Four safety recommendations were made."
