On December 14, a twin-engine turboprop jet made an emergency landing on its belly at Perth Airport.

At 10:40 a.m. local time, a plane carrying fly-in-fly-out workers from the Rothsay gold mine near Perth, Western Australia, crashed. There were a total of 11 persons on board. There were no injuries.

“It’s understood the landing gear collapsed,” Perth Airport tweeted, “but a safe landing was completed.”

The plane, a Beechcraft Super King Air 200 with the registration VH-LKF, circled before landing on the airport’s cross runway, according to FlightAware data.

The cross runway was reopened on December 14, 2021, after a safety study, according to Perth Airport. The main runway at the airport remained operational.

“It was a textbook crash”, one of the passengers told Nine News Perth, while another described the pilot as a “bloody champion, legend”.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau has been notified of the event.
