During touch-and-go maneuvres in windy and faint daylight conditions, the aircraft contacted the runway in a wheels-up configuration whilst landing on runway 11. It ran off the side of the runway where it came to rest on soft ground. All on board evacuated via emergency slides from door L2 and R1. At least one crewmember received leg injuries during evacuation. Damage to the aircraft is being considered as significant especially to the engine and aft underbelly. At the time, the Sukhoi Superjet performed a CAT IIIA autoland approach as part of its certifications trials on expanding operating conditions at Keflavik. The pilots also simulated a single engine landing. The incident is under investigation.
