A 747 Cargo from TRADE WINDS fully loaded with flower to USA aborted the take off due to an engine failure and overran the wet runway in Medellin. 5 people were on the plane, all of them are safe. The plane is right now at around 150 meters away from the end of the runway and all the airport activity is closed. More news to come.

Was this a flight for LAN?

You beat me to it Bongo!

Operations seem to be normal now, CM flight to Panama had a delay of 1:15.
AV flight to MIA must be taking off now, again 1:25 delay. There's one flight to BOG cancelled and other delayed, among other things.

I just called my aunt to see if she lends me her camera so I can go to the Airport and see what I can get but it's gonna take minimum an hour from now, let's hope I can take something.

My parents are on this flight. They heard the big noise of the 747.

Go ! and upload the pictures here !

I just saw the images on TV, the aircraft seems to be very damaged

Edited: According to the airport manager, the airplane has to be w/o.

I just spoke to my aunt... it seems I won't be able to get the camera until 3 pm, it's two hours from now. If everything goes ok and I finally get the camera at around 3 I could take some pictures with the last two hours of light.

It's a pity.
But that means the Airplane will then be there more time than I expected, which broadens the possibilities for pictures.

Just looking at the extent of the damange makes you think this is definitely going to be a write-off. The left side wingbox is torn open, the nose section is heavily wrinkled and torn open a bit, the gears are destroyed, plus the aircraft is pretty old I guess. I don't see this aircraft ever getting repaired.

I'm pretty sure this 747 will never fly again..  Sad

It's a sad thing to happen to such a beautiful ship. I hope that they can repair her.

Thank you for the brilliant photographs, by the way. They are very helpful.

Ah, it's a shame if they have to retire her.

Looking at the fourth photograph in Reply 11, above, she almost seems glum.

I'm sure she had a great life, though. I think that 747's almost invariably do, being as capable as they are.

After viewing the pictures I don't think that the airframe and landing gear would be worth repairing and the replacing of the engines would be costly as well.

What a shame, thank god everyone aboard is ok. I don't know much about mx, but it seems this ex-Garuda won't see action anymore, probably cheaper to collect the insurance and buy another one before taking the time to repair it. Again, what a shame.



JAAh
