The ATSB is investigating an operational event involving a Fokker 100, registered VH-UQN, at Rockhampton, Queensland, on 10 November 2019.
Passing 300 ft on final approach, the aircraft encountered moderate turbulence which resulted in a loss of airspeed. While attempting to arrest the loss of speed, the speed fell below the minimum approach speed. The aircraft landed safely.
As part of the investigation, the ATSB will interview directly involved parties and obtain other relevant information, including technical logs and recorded data.
A report will be released at the end of the investigation. Should a critical safety issue be identified during the course of the investigation, the ATSB will immediately notify relevant stakeholders so appropriate and timely safety action can be taken.
