I found this on the News section of this site:

Crashed jet closes Micronesian airport

The only airport on Pohnpei, the main island in the Federated States of Micronesia, is closed after a cargo plane lost its undercarriage on landing.

The Micronesian government says a Boeing 727 aircraft on a mail run between Honolulu and Guam touched down just short of the runway on Monday, causing the right main landing gear to break off.

The plane skidded toward the end of the runway before stopping with its right wing touching the ground.

The plane had three crew onboard, none of whom were injured.

Normal flight services at Pohnpei are not expected to resume before Saturday.


Looking at the JP, Continental Mike operates about four 727-200Fs for DHL, all built around '74 and ex MX.

The airport will more than likely not have any maintenance facilities and given its distance from basically anywhere, it sounds more than likely that it will be written off.

The plane belongs to Express One, a charter operator.
