According to nu.nl a Boeing 744 from Cargolux went into the grass during taxing to the terminal after landing in MST. Plane arrived from NBO. Freight onboard are flowers.

MST remains closed as there's only one runway.

What's with cargo 747's going off runways with flowers on board? IIRC the Tradewinds a/c that went off in Columbia (2008/2007??) was also loaded with flowers.  boggled

Good to see that they are offloading the cargo before the flowers spoil.

Wonder if they have the right equipment or have to loan from SPL

Why would MST not have the right equipment?! They have B747-400's all over the time, mostly CLX. But the groundhandling can handle all kind of freighters.

...to dig the 744 out of the grass, after it's unloaded.

You don't do that with a high loader and the regular tug might not be the right equipment either.

All as per regulations. Alcohol can be a factor in such incidents. But I presume that these tests are taken by the military police, not the local ones  Silly

Hi !! ...I seriously doubt the alcohol can have nothing to do with this, but, on the other hand, its really hard to me to understand how can they go so far in the grass !!! Any clue so far ?

Not a good day for the guys at work, 99% sure we had freight on that bird (about 2-3 maindeck pallets). Things like this screw up the planning big time  Wink.

Just a coincidence, since most freight by those ad-hoc companies is something special like flowers coming from South/Central America
