The aircraft landed close to the beginning of the runway. After landing, a runway inspection was carried out which found two runway threshold lights damaged. The Captain was notified and an aircraft inspection carried out prior to a subsequent departure. There were no injuries and the aircraft was not damaged.
As part of the investigation, the ATSB will interview the flight crew and gather additional information. A report will be released within several months.
