Reading about the Qantas incident in Bangkok I recall two incidents involving Air France Jumbos.
In 1985 an Air France B747-200 belly landed in Rio de Janeiro as the landing gear collapsed during touch down. Also back in 1992 or 1993 (not sure exactly when) there was another B747-400 severly damaged during a landing (or take off) run in Papeete (Tahiti).
Does anyone know what happened to these aircraft? Was the airline able to recuperate them?
