As reported by the media yesterday afternoon an Airfrance 777-200 en route to CDG crossed runway 5L without tower clearence when a DHL 727 had about 1km of race into its takeoff making DHL to abort and sliding off the runway for about 1km to its left getting stuck in the mud caused by morning heavy rains,,,no one hurt.

Not that serious???? perhaps not for the AF 777, but the 727 ended up in the mud. It's really serious when something like this happens, just think of what could have happend if they would have croosed a few moments later and the 727 would have been closer....

It wasn´t the AF 772 passenger flight to CDG, it was a 747F Air France Cargo that was allowed to land on the same runway as the DHL DC-8 was allowed to take off.

The DHl pilot was the one who saved the situation

Where did you get that info? All sources say the way it happened was as described by Delta fan. If the situation really was like you said, how could DHL have seen Air France?

The Reforma.com report on the Air France runway incursion states the following:

- The Air France 777, registration F-GSPP, vacated runway 05R/23L, and without clearance, crossed runway 05L/23R.

- DHL Flight 951 (Mexico City - Cincinnati), a DC-8-73 with registration N806DH, was about 1000m (or 3280ft) into its takeoff roll on 05L when it was instructed to abort takeoff due to AF's incursion.

- The DHL crew steered the DC-8 off the runway to the right side (that gives an idea of how close the situation was to becoming a collision). The day had been rainy, so DHL got stuck in mud.

- There were no injuries.

- Air France flight 439 was later cleared to resume its flight to Paris.

- Runway 05L/23R was closed for over 14 hours, while N806DH was getting its fuel and cargo unloaded, and then towed to the Mexicana de Aviación maintenance base, where it is undergoing evaluation and damage repair.

The article doesn't say at what time the runway incursion happened, but those flights leave at 9pm, so it happened somewhere between 9pm and 10pm, September 24th.

Again, that's the report from Reforma.com, Mexico's leading newspaper website.

Hello
I think AF landed 5R, was instructed to hold short of 5L, but he crossed it while DHL DC8 was on take off roll at 5L... the classic runway incursion.

I agree with you, it sounds more logical the way you said.
