Last weekend I was in Paris and met a friend who is working for UAL there. He told me he was on the tarmac when the 20 year-old B747-200 of Cameroon Airlines broke its neck two months ago. The aircraft has been removed to a remote area and will most likely be scrapped now though currently that process has not yet begun. I saw also the leased-in Cameroon 767 parked near Terminal 1 there.
Sad to know another exotic Jumbo has gone.

hi
yeah what a shame...plus,they replaced the 747 with a 767 now repainted to their colors.At first UY station manager had told me they were negotiating with insurance company to see if they were going to mend the airplane,but now the 767 bears UY colors it looks like the answer is no

Bad news, guys:
the aviation-safety.net lists this accident as one of two 747 losses in 00, and they´re usually quite accurate.

I was up at the Boeing plant at Everett last Friday and saw a 763 for Cameroon Airlines, TJ-CAC. It came in after lunch after a test flight so it must be delivered soon. I also saw the El Al 777 but that's a different story. The777Man
