An Air Algerie Boeing 737-600 carrying more than 100 pax has gone off rwy this morning at Seville after it's landing gear collapsed during landing.

The right wing is broken (as said by news reports on TV...but it has not been confirmed) and 45 passengers are slightly injured.

aiai, that sounds like the first 737NG write off (the Southwest Midway overrun aircraft is being repaired). Most important of course is, this time noone got killed. Please keep us updated, can someone translate the article? Hmm saw the link in the first reply in the meantime, the frame condition doesn't look THAT bad, I think they might repair that one as well.

nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Yup...even though preliminary reports say that the landing was VERY hard it does not look that bad after seeing some images on TV. Nobody was killed and I hope the aircraft can be repaired.

Is the airport now re-opened? Flights have been diverted to XRY.

It looks like the right gear collapsed.

A 737-600? I didn´t know they had one. How sad to see this beatiful bird lying in the runway.
Are they going to repair this bird?

Wow. Looks like they ended up fairly near that hangar....although it is hard to tell with a telephoto photo.

Yes, probably since it's fairly new and it looks repairable.

Judging from what we can see in the pictures, damage doesn't seem to be extensive. They should be able to repair this one. But of course, I'm no engineer!

Isn't it weird how the aircraft ended "nose up"? I'd never seen a 737 with a gear collapse end that way...

It is indeed the next door. Cities are 90 km apart. Iberia have ferried some planes this morning from XRY to SVQ. Flying time: 10 minutes.

Interesting question. I'd say that the most likely explanation is that it's sitting on the right engine pod and left main gear, and that the rear of the right engine pod is significantly further forward than the right main gear. Here's a pic that illustrates the difference:

so my conjecture is that it's doing the "taildragger" thing: the center of gravity is aft of the engine pod, causing the tail to go down and the nose to rise. That, combined with the possible offloading of pax and baggage, may have contributed to that situation. I'm not sure, though. It almost doesn't seem as though the pod is that much further forward, at least not enough to cause the tip backwards.

My thoughts goes to the crew and passengers. Lets hope she will be airborne soon.

According to the airline it self, the airplane overrun was due to bad weather. The same airline claims that no one was injured. Even though there was reported that 45 was injured.
