Everyone talks but never answers to others questions.
Drew, the registration was F-GPAN, year built 1978, C/n 21515/337.
Air France flight 6745 had taken off from Paris and was on its way to Chennai after some enroute stops at Karachi and Bangalore. The cargo plane carried 66 tonnes of cargo, that included three foreign cars, 20 tonnes of ITC cigarettes, chemicals and garments. The aircraft was cleared for a Runway 07 ILS approach, but the approach was abandoned due to 'technical difficulties'. The pilot reported he would circle for another approach. This time the aircraft touched down but the nose struck the runway, because the nosegear was not down (or not locked). The plane skidded and came to rest at 7000ft down the runway (which is 13050ft long). As the pilot informed the ATC of the mishap, he noticed smoke in the cockpit. Even as the smoke was being extinguished, flames erupted in the front portion of the aircraft. One of the crewmembers came down through a rope ladder from the cockpit, the other four were brought down through the rear of the aircraft using the fire engine step ladders. The fire services were not able to extinguish the fire and the plane burned out completely.
