A Volga Dnepr An 124 overshot the runway by 78 meters in Gander Airport (Newfoundland Canada). According to www.gazeta.ru the plane was on its way to Tianjin China with 98 tons of cargo and 10 crew. No injuries or damage reported. More info anyone?

They may have. I can say for certain they did put one off in Gander (my hometown) in the early 90's. Here's a picture of it from the jumpseat of an Air Nova Dash 8 on short final to runway 31. Take note of who posted the picture to the net. A friend of mine took the picture (was one of the pilots on board the Dash 8). http://www.aviationpics.de/mish/2001/oops.htm
