Deployment: Enduring Freedom

The main gear collapsed during landing at Ganci AB, Manas, Kyrgyzstan. Both tension struts tore free from the FS341 bulkhead following a very hard landing. The aircraft is being repaired at Kjeller depot where the lower FS341 bulkhead is being replaced, similar to Falcon Up. The hard landing was caused by the fact that during landing in a two-ship formation one wing came into the turbulence from the lead. This caused the wing to loose lift and to compensate the pilot gave roll input the other way, with the result that the flaperon on the wing which was not in the turbulence went up, causing loss of control.
