An ATR 72-500 (72-212A) operated by TruJet, performed flight 543 from Belgaum to Mysore, India.
On final approach to Mysore, the pilot in command lost sight of the runway because of a sudden increase in the intensity of rain and strong gusty winds. He performed a go-around, during which the aircraft contacted the runway surface.
The crew was unable to retract the landing gear after going around. The flight then diverted to Chennai with the landing gear extended. A normal landing was carried out on runway 07 at Chennai. The aircraft stopped on the runway and sought ATC assistance to tow the aircraft.
