Recovery in progress after a spectacular runway overrun. Due to the spoilers not deploying, the automatic brake disarmed and the reverse thrust were asymmetric, the aircraft overran the runway and ended up in a lagoon! Nobody was injured and the aircraft was repaired after a long working party.

You gotta love that guy nonchalantly sat atop the aircraft seemingly with nothing by way of safety gear, the health and safety people would have kittens these days

At least there was an excuse for this Air France frame to be dirty... ;-)

I don't know what hurts more to look at, the tight shorts, socks and sandals of that time or the fact that this poor 747-400 was barely two years old at the time.
