I'm sure there are mitigating factors, but I'm starting to get the impression that these Dash-8's aren't the strongest in the landing gear department.
" aren't the strongest in the landing gear" - That is an Understatement!
That is a total loss... Will see what happened.
It will buff out...
Lol.... Spit and Polish!
I ask two questions: Is there responsibility in the companies through their management that ultimately fall on the pilots to make decisions about "delaying" a flight until the conditions are safe ?, and ...... the pilots face a dilemma between their overestimation and the pressure from their bosses to "question their experience" thinking about the conservation of their jobs?
