EasyJet plane made hard landing after computer froze
The aircraft was on approach to Munich Airport after flying from Edinburgh in July 2017.
An easyJet plane from Edinburgh to Germany made a hard landing as it touched down after an onboard computer failed.
The aircraft was on approach to Munich Airport with 149 passengers on board when the incident occurred on July 3 last year.
The pilot was forced to disconnect the autopilot when the guidance computer froze and fly it in manually.
He pitched the plane too low, however, prompting a shout of "watch it" from his co-pilot.
The Airbus A319 touched down hard and its nose and landing gear were damaged, although nobody was injured.
The Air Accident Investigation Branch, which investigated the incident, concluded: "Neither pilot realised that the aircraft was in the incorrect attitude for landing until it was too late to take corrective action.
"As a result, the aircraft landed heavily causing damage to the nose and right main landing gear.
"It is possible that distractions and high workload during the approach contributed to the nose-down pitch input being made immediately before touchdown."
