04 Jan 2005; PK-YGF ?, 737-200C, 21822/605, Tri-MG; Banda Aceh, Indonesia:
The aircraft was making a normal landing at Banda Aceh airport when it hit cows that had strayed onto the runway. The port main gear collapsed and the port engine and landing gear were badly damaged. The Republic of Singapore Air Force was called in to use their Chinooks to "float" the aircraft off the runway using airbags.
The were no injuries and the aircraft was declared a write off and scrapped several months later.

If you think the 737 is not safe, then the Concorde, A300, A310, A319/20/21, B727, B747, L1011, DC9, DC10, MD11 are actually worse than the 737.
