"A Delta Airlines Boeing 757-200, registration N543US performing flight DL-414 from New York JFK,NY (USA) to Ponta Delgada (Portugal), landed on Ponta Delgada's runway 12 at 08:24L (08:24Z) but suffered a hard touch down. The aircraft rolled out and taxied to the apron. There were no injuries, the aircraft sustained substantial damage however.

A replacement Boeing 757-200 registration N538US is currently positioning from Atlanta,GA (USA) to Ponta Delgada to perform the return flight."
