A FIFO plane has crash-landed on its belly at Perth Airport after its landing gear collapsed.
The twin-turbo prop aircraft, which had flown in from a mid-west mine, was due to land about 10.40am on Tuesday before reporting a landing indicator problem.
It is understood that as the plane hit the tarmac, the landing gear buckled underneath it.
However, the pilot was able to complete the landing safely and there were no reports of injuries among the 10 passengers aboard, who disembarked without trouble.
“Passengers have been disembarked and their health and care is our top priority,” a Perth Airport spokesman said.
Incident has been reported to Australian Transport Safety Bureau.
Engineers will review the aircraft and then it will be moved once safe to do so.
A runway review will then be conducted to ensure runway is safe to use again.
“Operations on the main runway are not affected.”
It comes five days after another charter plane carrying fly-in, fly-out workers was forced to make an emergency landing at the airport after experiencing engine issues.
The Cobham Q400 aircraft had been flying to a Truscott mine site before turning back to Perth on Friday morning.
A Cobham spokesperson said the pilot had to power down the engine mid-flight after they were alerted to an issue, prompting the emergency landing.
“The plane landed safely … following the pilot performing a precautionary power reduction in response to a warning light in the cockpit,” a statement said.
There were 27 passengers and four crew aboard.
