Beschrijving:
An Airbus A320-232 operated by THY Turkish Airlines sustained substantial damage in a landing accident at Istanbul-Atatürk International Airport (IST), Turkey.
The aircraft operated flight TK1878 from Milano-Malpensa Airport (MXP), Italy, where it departed at 07:00 hours local time (05:00 UTC). At 10:23 hours local time (07:23 UTC) the aircraft carried out an approach to runway 05 at Atatürk Airport. The landing was discontinued and the airplane briefly climbed to 3800 feet. Flames were observed coming from (near) the no. 2 engine as the aircraft climbed away after the aborted landing. The airplane descended to 1100-1250 feet as it circled over sea in preparation for an approach to runway 35L.
The A320 touched down on runway 35L at 10:41 hours local time. During this landing the right hand main gear collapsed, causing the no. 2 engine to drag along the runway. It swung to the right almost 180 degrees before coming to rest off the side of the runway.
