Turkish Airlines Airbus A320-232 with registration TC-JPE flight TK-1878 from Milan Malpensa in Italy to Istanbul, Turkey had to make an emergency landing after a failed approach on Istanbul Ataturk Airport's runway 05 at 10:22L (07:22Z) Apr-25-2015.

The flight was carrying 97 passengers and just before touchdown the Airbus A320 rolled right causing the right wing along with the engine to come in contact with the runway.

The crew initiated a go-around and then declared an emergency due to the right engine being inoperative.

The crew subsequently reported an unsafe gear indication after a hard touch down.

The Airbus still being able to fly the crew made a go-around and positioned themselves for an emergency landing on runway 35L. They touched down about 20 minutes after the accident, but with the damage seen to the right wing and right main gear collapsed the aircraft skidded on its right engine, with sparks and smoke trailing the engine.

The Airbus veered right off the runway spinning nearly 180 degrees. The aircraft was evacuated via slides while emergency services started to spray the aircraft. There were no injuries, the aircraft received substantial damage to the right hand main gear, right hand engine and its pylon as well as to leading and trailing edge high lift devices at the right hand wing.

Hats off to the crew for taking her down in that condition without any injuries to the passengers.
