What Is The Status Of Varig MD-11 PP-VQG?

Thu Dec 28, 2006 2:05 am

I hear something about PP-VQG, the VARIG MD-11 that was damaged at Brasilia on 16 June, as being a writeoff. Can anyone confirm this?

Well the centre main gear leg was broken off and it impacted on the bottom of the fuselage a couple of times, perhaps the other gear caused damage to the spar, though i haven't heard that she was a write off up until now.

Here is a photo showing the broken gear!!

I can't confirm your information, but according to the very latest MD-11 Airlinerlist, PP-VQG is still parked and WFU as off 07/2006.

Cheers.
