Just saw where a Fedex (looks like an ATR from what I can see) feeder crashed on landing in Lubbock.. 2 on board, both are fine.

It was an ATR42 flying from AFW to LBB. I am glad that the crew walked away. It looks really bad on the picture.

hah!
Yeah that freezing mist will make you veer off the runway every time in the ATR... maybe they should improve the boots yet again.

The media's not the only one to get it wrong sometimes.

it is empire. they have been doing that run for many years. i am sure that non of them are allowed to talked about the crash until after the investigation per company rules. the atr is not that bad in ice and freezing mist never brought down any plane on approach. maybe the gear collapsed or something. soon we will all know. i know that the pic had a lot of time in that aircraft and is a very good pilot. i am sure it was not pilots error. glad everyone walked away unhurt.
