An Italian Air Force C-130J transport plane sustained substantial damage in a landing accident at Herat, Afghanistan.
The airplane operated on a supply mission for Italian troops in the Herat area. It apparently touched down heavily causing the right hand main undercarriage to be pushed into the wheel bay. The C-130 swerved off the runway and came to rest with the right hand wing tip on the ground.
