It's sad to see this beauty standing there in such a conditions. Once he flew twice a week at Ostend, then at BRussel, and now written off after a stupid incident. RIP ZS-OOS

This Hydro Air Cargo 747 was damaged on landing at Lagos in November 2003 and was written off. Severe damage to number one engine can be seen. Thankfully none of the 9 crew where injured.

If you ever had the misfortune of having worked on this airplane, it wouldn't " break your heart " to see it rotting away, RIP- and stay there!

This is a sad sight. I think this airline should have invested in more than one plane. Does anyone know what happened to the pilot?!? I guess he lost his job. What a disappointing set of circumstances.

Its the latest paint scheme for the cargo group and their new marketing campaign. "we transport sewage now," i think it really captures this new service in a captivating way.

"The aircraft, on a cargo flight to Lagos' Murtalah Mohammed Airport, collided with construction equipment after being cleared to land on closed runway 19R. As the aircraft was rolling out, the main landing gear impacted several construction vehicles parked on the runway, which was closed according to NOTAMs in effect. The aircraft departed the runway, tearing off at least one wing. The flight crew escaped with minor injuries." Airdisaster.com

This just hurts... The queen of the skies looks sad, but somehow she still looks proud. Wonder if that's the "Moth Ball" I was supposed to take for a spin in FSX ;-)

Did you notice the discarded ULD on the left-side.. It appears to be from Swiss Airlines... So it's not just airplanes that are left here!
