On November 9, 2012, about 2007 central standard time, N619BA, a Fairchild Aircraft, Inc., SA227-AC, multi-engine airplane, sustained minor damage when the left main landing gear collapsed during landing at Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport (MSP), Minneapolis, Minnesota. The pilot was not injured. The airplane was registered to and operated by Bemidji Aviation Services, Inc. Night visual meteorological conditions (VMC) prevailed at the time of the accident and an instrument flight rules (IFR) flight plan had been filed for the 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 135 cargo flight. The airplane departed Duluth International Airport (DLH), Duluth, Minnesota, about 1926 destined for MSP.
