A Brazilian Air Force KC-137 overran the runway at PAP after an aborted take-off, there were no injuries reported but some damage to the airframe. The abort was due to an engine fire. Details and some pics here.

Quoting bennett123 (Reply 2): 1 engine on fire, followed by a broken NLG does not sound a minor issue
while not minor, they are not significant enough to warrant scrapping the aircraft.. unless there is a political motive to do so.. like getting a newer plane with leather seats and that new a/p smell that the brass love..
