Centurion DC10 Crash

Thu Apr 29, 2004 1:12 pm

Wednesday April 28th at about 4:00AM EST a Centurion Air Cargo DC10 crashed in BOG due to a "pothole" in the runway. The aircraft apparently went over the distance limit to stop, hit the hole, and the nose gear collapsed. The a/c finally came to a stop with its nose buried on the ground. Since it was so early in the morning there were no other people injured other than the crew and a humid area (humedal) helped the a/c to stop before it went on the street. The three crew members where slightly injured and where transfered to Santa Fe Hospital. Here is the link, in spanish:

I figure this was on RWY 13R? What's with the hole?

"Centurion DC 10 Ran Out Runway At BOG?". No one answered on the first thread. It appears nobody knows, or cares.

AV757,

Yeah my bad. I posted this last night and didn't realize it had been posted already 'cause it had gone all the way to the bottom.
