From the IAA website at 10:15 this morning:

1015hrs 10 February 2011: Flight Avia No FLT400C a metroliner SW4 with ten passengers and two crew has crashed at Cork Airport. No details of injuries or fatalities are available. The aircraft made an approach to Runway 17 in low vis conditions (Category 2) and went around and did not land and attempted a second landing on Runway 35. The aircraft then went around a second time and came back for an approach to Runway 17. On the second approach to Runway 17 the aircraft crashed adjacent to Taxiway C. Rescue and Fire crew are in attendance. There is a fire and debris has been scattered onto the runway and over a wide area. The accident will be investigated by the Air Accident Unit of the Dept. of Transport. This is correct at this time and may be amended as more detail becomes available.

For such a terrible disaster to strike our land, which has quite a good safety record, is beyond belief.
It is without doubt, the worst Airport Accident that Ireland has ever encountered.

Early activation of the emergency plan, and rapid deployment of their services without doubt, prevented a worse scenario developing. They are to be held in high esteem.

May I on behalf of AOPA Ireland, wish condolences to the Families and Friends of those on flight NM7100 who lost their lives and, a full and speedy recovery to those who were injured.
