Another Korean Air Accident !

Mon Mar 15, 1999 6:20 pm

A Korean Air MD-80 (MD-82) aircraft slid of the runway trying to land at Pohang in Southeast South Korea.
30 people were injured but nobody died. The MD-82 was landing in bad weather and was making it's second attempt to land. There was 150+ passengers aboard the flight.

I hardly think this was neccesairy for Korean Air to do. I mean, they were already the undisputed champion of incidents and accidents anyway.

Thanks for the link, JP, nice (if that's the right word) pictures.

I flown with them in the past, but with all thier problems they've had, I've been quite leary.
Too bad, is since they have a really nice flight that I've taken out of Aomori (AOJ) Japan to Seoul. It avoids having to go to Tokyo and drive the 75 minutes across town from Haneda to Narita.
