Damaged B747 At CDG

Sat Feb 16, 2002 7:53 am

Just got back from CDG. As our AF B777 was about to turn onto the runway, I noticed a damaged B747, with nose wheel collapsed lying just off the ramp area.

I remember a Cameroon Airlines aircraft was damaged on landing at Paris, however, I'm not sure it is the same aircraft. To be honest, the colors look more like those of Air Gabon rather than Cameroon. However, the titles have been erased so really can't tell.

In addition, I noticed an Air Afrique aircraft also parked on the adjoining ramp. Seeing as they have cancelled all flights, is this one of the planes that have been repossessed? If so, how many RK planes are there parked at CDG? If anyone can help, I'd appreciate.
