For the memory of TC-JPE Turkish Airlines , Airbus A320

TC-JPE , Turkish Airlines Airbus A320 crash landing ;

On April 25,2015 , TC-JPE has been hit the runway 05 of Istanbul Ataturk Airport, very hard during touch down. Reason were detected as "vortex" on runway which were caused by heavy aircraft which was landed few minutes before TC-JPE.

Aircraft lost right engine, right main landing gear, main hydraulic.

Pilots immediately managed to "go around" and climb with one engine.

The right wing,winglet and flaps have been damaged.

Without hydraulic, pilots could not retract gears and flaps.

They declared emergency to tower and turned back to airport.

Pilots achieved to land runway 35L but due to missing right main gears, aircraft skidded off the runway and stopped on the ground . No injuries. Aircraft is permanently out of service.

Hi Rajansingh, we have certain places around the airport for taking photos. By using 200mm lens and adjusting camera to catch fast moving objects help us to get proper results :) Have a great day. Brgds
