Skyvan sprains an ankle

My word, that’s not nice. After I left yesterday, the Skyvan had to abort a landing after a wheel strut buckled. There’s a happy ending, though: the pilot diverted to Oxford airport (presumably because there’s more firefighting equipment there if the worst happens) and landed effectively. Hope the Skyvan can be repaired; the results of landing belly down won’t have been pretty, and with only 35 of these charismatic planes in existence we don’t want to lose one.
