Seems the fuselage is broken near the front. The MD-82 is 27 years old so hardly worth to spend much on it anymore.

Looks like a new source of spare parts! Glad to see no one was hurt in the excursion.

Like the past, where so many first generation jets and later props have died, Central Africa is now the "killing fields" for our later generation 727, 737 and MD-80's. Sad to see these proud airliners end days this way...

Congrats to the pilots and anybody on board. I expect that this hull of an aircraft will just stay there forever.
