If I remember right, it's just about six month ago in Central America (Nicaragua or Guatemala???). I keep thinking, it may come back to my mind who it was and where exactly. But as far as I remember, it wasn't an aborted take off, it was a landing on an wet runway. Sorry, not having more yet,

I have a link in French.

It was a B747-200F of Tradewind International Airlines failing to take-off from Medelin on June 7th, 2006.

http://www.1001crash.com/index-page-video-lg-1.html

Le 7 juin 2006, alors que ce Boeing 747-200F cargo est en train de décoller de l'aéroport de Rionegro/Medellín-José María Córdova (Colombie), un de ses 4 moteurs tombe en panne. Le Jumbo, appartenant à Tradewinds International Airlines, interrompt immédiatement son décollage et freine. Mais le sol est mouillé à cause d'une pluie battante, et le B747 n'arrive pas à s'arrêter avant le bout de la piste. Il parcourt 150 mètres dans l'herbe, subissant d'importants dommages. Les 5 membres d'équipage sont indemnes. La scène a été filmée par les caméras de l'aéroport

I think everyone was OK. My favourite bit is whoever is operating the camera turns to the 747, sees it's not going to stop, and pans ahead to where it's going to crash! I can't help but find it comical. Shame about the aircraft (and probably the crew's careers).

I believe it was a cargo plane heading to Miami carrying mostly flowers. Has been a while but pretty sure this was the case.

One can only assume that distance calculations were incorrect for the wet runway. Otherwise an engine out on take-off should not typically lead to this kind of thing. Either you have enough space to stop or you are at/beyond V1 and need to press on.

Translated: On June 7, 2006, this Boeing 747-200F cargo liner is taking off from the airport of Rionegro/Medellín-Jose María Córdova (Colombia), when one of its 4 engines breaks down. The Jumbo, belonging to International Tradewinds Airlines, stops it's t.o immediately and slows down, but the ground is wet because of rain, and the B747 is not able to stop before the end of the runway. It traverses 150 meters in grass, suffering significant damage. The 5 members of crew are unscathed. The scene was filmed by the cameras of the airport.

That picture must be during the removal/scrapping of the aircraft.

That is the new Boeing option for cargo planes. During a crash the nose section is ejected and comes to the ground slowly by parachute, saving the pilots but ruining the plane for future use.

Are you sure? I think it exploded and the only thing to survive was the cockpit section and a perfectly intact pickup truck.  duck

Funny (yes, haha funny) responses.

The plane was dismantled after the costs were deemed too high.

I believe they save the nose section of the plane because it is rich with rotable equipment, like avionics, radar and the like.

I don't think the plane overran the runway, came to a stop, shuddered and then fell apart, ala a bad cartoon. I think Boeing builds the 747 a little stronger than that.

More often than not, the cockpit section goes to a training school - we have a couple of ex leased 747-200 or -300s at Kemble airfield just up the road from me that are undergoing scrapping, and they removed the cockpit section of one of them in exactly that manner prior to cutting up the rest of the aircraft. Upon asking, the cockpit was due to be shipped to a training school, tho I am unsure as to what type (fire, MX etc).

In what form are they used in training school? For what purpose? study the crash effects?

Cockpit training - as close to the real thing as you can get without actually getting a real 747?

It sure would make a badass MS Flight Sim cockpit!

Build a hut around it, bolt a flat screen against each windscreen, and a whole bunch of wiring, and you would be the envy of just about everyone on this site.

I tell you what is shocking about that vid. When the jumbo is approaching the very end of the runway it's obviously still going quite fast (hence not stopping in time!). However once it came off the runway it seems like there is some SERIOUS deceleration! It managed to go from that speed (at the end of the runway) to ZERO quite quickly.
To say the pilots seatbelts were merely "tested" in this accident is a bit of an understatement!  Wow!



In my eyes the Boeing 747 will ALWAYS be the queen of the skies!
