Sun Jul 17, 2005 9:34 am

a bit of an old news (happned 2 days ago) but didnt see it posted and wasnt online:
A DAS Air Cargo DC10 aircraft skidded off the runway at Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos on Wednesday. The incident occured around 1400 as the aircraft was inbound from a country on the West Coast of Africa. This resulted in the airport being closed for around 3 hours.

I heard it was actually Almiron Aviation L-1011 5X-AAL and not DAS Air Cargo!
