Two years ago this little mishap occurred at MEM. This is what the NTSB concluded - "1) the first officer's failure to properly apply crosswind landing techniques to align the airplane with the runway centerline and to properly arrest the airplane's descent rate (flare) before the airplane touched down; and 2) the captain's failure to adequately monitor the first officer's performance and command or initiate corrective action during the final approach and landing."

Something's wrong with those FedEx pilots. My flight was to take off after 1 hour of de-icing and this FedEx cargo tried to land and did 'go-around.' That took quite a while.

Well at least we know that Tom Hanks survived.
I wonder how angry would the FEDEX customers must have been, after this happened.

Lovely how you can see the frames and how the skin is thicjened around the windows. But isn;t it rather unusual to call an MD-10 a Boeing.

I remember driving over to look at the plane that afternoon. It was still smoldering. No deaths...a broken ankle or two. It was a check ride for the first officer who, obviously, failed. She's not with FedEx anymore.

So, was this a "good landing" (one you can walk away from on your own)?

For the Netherlands visitor, Boeing MD10-10 and MD10-30 are former DC10 that Boeing converted for FedEx with some MD11 equipments (2 crew flightdeck). 89 DC10 were converted for FedEx. Source : Airliners database !

Need to say, that the first officer was a woman?

Is the German poster implying that this was because the F/O was a woman...or that it was unnecessary to mention that she was a woman? Either way, nice picture.

I bet if this plane was a passanger aircraft, all those distraction and skilless moment wouldn't happened. Crosswind landing techniques are the key for safe landings!

Blame the flight crew. That's the easy way out when
they can't figure out what really happened!
Great picture.

"Guess who didn't send it by Fedex?"
That was in Natgeo's magazine, and then an image of a frontline of Roman soldiers, one of which without shield while making the "testudo".
Maybe it should be changed to "Guess who tried to have it sent by Fedex?"

Notice full right rudder...

To the poster below mentioning full right rudder. The rudder is just drooping right towards the Earth because of gravity. That is not a commanded input as there is no hydraulic pressure.

I get why you called the particular aircraft Boeing, because boeing converted the aircraft from passenger to freighter. Just saying but it look's like Boeing caused the crash by tampering with the controls because they were jealous of McDonnell Douglas!!! LOL!

To the poster above (Anonymous)...
Then why is the far-part of the horizontal stabilizer (the one furthest from you) is up? HMM?!?!
