Hello I did a quick search on this and did not find anything, sorry if I missed it? Question about WN aircraft N471WN that overran the runway in KMDW in 2005. My question is this was it written off or did they repair it, how long did the repair take? Are there any pictures of it in the repair process around?

Thanks mike

I answered part of my question is it still flying that is yes under this reg # N286WN? The other questions remain.

Thanks Mike

That aircraft is back in service. It's been renumbered. I think it's N286. Maybe someone else can confirm that.

The safest place to be in an airplane crash is on the ground.

Wasn't N286WN only a temporary registration? Or was it converted to permanent status?

Considering it's now 2007, nearly 2008, I'd say it's fairly permanent.

Why was it renumbered?


It takes a bug to hit a windsheild but it takes guts to stick

In the same way that after a crsh, flight numbers, registrations and so forth are taken out of use by the airline. Can't quite remember why, to protect the airline from Media Bandwagon, respect for the dead, away from bad publicity...
