A Fairchild Metroliner crashed in fog at Cork Airport in Ireland today, killing six people and injuring six more. There were 10 passengers and two pilots on board the 19-seat twin turboprop when it made its third attempt to land, having previously made two go-arounds on a flight from Belfast City Airport in Northern Ireland.
FBO Ireland started business jet handling at Dublin Airport last month, operating out of the main terminal. The Shannon-based group is now negotiating to open a new executive facility at Dublin. Next month, FBO Ireland is scheduled to start business aircraft handling at Ireland’s Cork Airport.
