Sunday, March 29, 2015, 6:21 PM - The Transportation and Safety Board released images of the aircraft that made a 'hard landing' at Halifax's Stanfield Airport.

The Airbus A320 was carrying 138 passengers and crew when it came down hard, coming to rest on its belly in bad shape.

Some 25 of the passengers were taken to hospital, with all but one being released as of noon Sunday.

The exact cause of the crash is under investigation, though the TSB confirmed that the plane collided with an antenna array, dislodging the craft's main landing gear.

Look below for a Storify of the images of the plane, all courtesy of the TSB.
