There was a total of 2 crew members onboard and there were no injuries or casualties. A flight inspection after the landing showed that creases were found around the fuselage to the extent that Royal Mail were unable to unload the mail the plane was carrying. The aircraft involved in this incident was initially delivered to Alaska Airlines in December 1994. From 2009 to 2014 it flew to Donavia and in 2015 it was converted into a freighter.
