Skid off during landing. Certainly amazing, no one was hurt, but the damage is amazing. 3 Engines ripped out, wing lost, a landing gear ripped out, front gear collapsed! Note engine 1 and 2 totaly ripped facing an other way! Just look how close it was to this house and to the wall.

I witnessed the incident on August the 31st and took pictures of it which weren't screened because of heathaze but this event is so much more dramatic,
Thanks a lot Stefano, No. 1 for UIO!

Sad to see A340 in that shape. Due to the damage to the wing and fuselage, we may not see her anymore flying across the skies.

Great snap my friend. Firstly I'd like to reiterate the fact that its so great nobody was injured. Theres something eery about this shot in my opinion. Not sure why, just sends a shiver up my spin. Lighting and sharpness both sublime!

November of the prevvy year was a bad month for Airbus. Remember the Etihad A340-500 which smashed thru a wall and ripped its own nose section off? I dunno how things look for this poor lad, but the Etihad one has since been used as a donor, that is she will never take to the skies again.

Amazing pic, and whats more amazing is that all passangers got out safely! One thing to note is that the front gear didnt collapse, it is burried in the ground.
