"A pilot with an artificial arm lost control of a passenger plane after the prosthetic limb fell off the steering mechanism in a shock accident, a report has revealed. The incident....came as the Dash 8 aircraft with 47 passengers on board was approaching the airport in gusty conditions. The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) report said....'a normal touchdown was followed by a bounce, from which the aircraft landed heavily.' The AAIB reported that the captain had said that in future he would be more cautious about checking the attachment on his prosthesis."
In response to the report, Captain Ian Baston, Flybe Director of Flight Operations and Safety, said “Flybe is proud to be an Equal Opportunities Employer."
