The morning newspaper flight to Jersey departed Bournemouth at 06:38. The first officer, who was on his first line training flight, was pilot flying. The F-27 was radar vectored for an ILS runway 27 approach. Weather included wind from 330 deg at 24-34 kts with a visibility of 30 km and a cloud base of 1600 feet. The captain took control of the plane four seconds before touchdown. The plane landed heavily nosewheel first (+3.7 g), causing the nose gear to be pushed rearwards into the aircraft structure. The aircraft bounced and after the second touchdown (+3.0 g), the main landing gear retracted. It slid several hundred meters on the runway before sliding off into the grass.
