The ATSB is investigating a ground strike involving a British Aerospace BAe 146-300, registered VH-SAJ, at Brisbane Airport, Queensland, on 25 June 2024.

On descent into Brisbane Airport, the aircraft's approach became unstable. The approach continued and the tail of the aircraft subsequently struck the runway on landing, resulting in damage to the aircraft.

An ATSB investigation team deployed to Brisbane Airport. As part of the evidence collection phase of the investigation, ATSB investigators are expected to examine the aircraft damage, interview flight crew, and collect other relevant information including recorded data.

A final report will be released at the conclusion of the investigation. Should a critical safety issue be identified during the course of the investigation, the ATSB will immediately notify relevant parties, so that appropriate safety action can be taken.
