I've just read in the papers that a DC-8 freighter aircraft was involved in a minor accident. The plane belonged to Fine Air, a freight-forwarding company. The accident happened while the plane was taxiing.

CARGO PLANE RUNS INTO A DITCH AT AIRPORT
Friday, March 1 2002 - The Straits Times
AN American cargo plane landed in a ditch early yesterday morning as it was taxiing towards a parking bay at Changi Airport. None of the three crew onboard was hurt.
However, the landing gear of the McDonnell Douglas DC-8 plane was badly damaged as its nose crashed into the ground, leaving its body in midair.
An ambulance and a fire engine were sent to the scene at Terminal One, said a Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) spokesman, adding that the accident did not disrupt operations at the airport.
The plane's operator, Fine Air Services of Florida, is a freight-forwarding company. The CAAS is investigating the cause of the accident.
