A Porter Airlines de Havilland Dash 8-400, registration C-GLQP performing flight PD-2375 from Ottawa,ON to Fredericton,NB (Canada), was landing on Fredricton's runway 27 at 14:00L (17:00Z) when the aircraft's tail struck the runway. The crew initiated a go around, climbed to 2000 feet and positioned for another approach to runway 27. The aircraft landed without further incident about 8 minutes after the go around.

The aircraft was unable to continue its schedule and is still on the ground in Fredericton (standing Jul 10th 2024).

The Canadian TSB reported: "During approach to landing phase, the aircraft experienced a tail strike which resulted in the flight crew conducted a go around. Returning to the airport, the flight completed a visual circuit and landed without further incident. The touch runway sensor was illuminated, and the flight crew contacted company operations to advise of the occurrence. Ground crew personal discovered that the underside of the fuselage near the rear cargo door was substantially damaged and reported it immediately. The TSB deployed two investigators to gather information and examine the aircraft."
