Sky Flight 101 was coming in to La Serena from Antofagasta, in Northern Chile and was attempting to land at a highly irregular angle for touchdown (see video below). As the pilot tried to land, he struck the right hand wing on the runway before pulling up and diverting to Copiapo, Chile.
There were no injuries reported and the Boeing 737-200 was grounded.
It is not known if the aircraft had any mechanical issues prior to landing or if it was pilot error.
La Serena is known for some dicey weather and tricky approaches.
The incident is under a full investigation.
That was a close one!
