Remark Photographer
HL7372 (cn 48408/457) Not something you see everyday, a Korean Air MD-11 freighter sitting on its tail, this fateful day in 2002 brought one very unsual sight for me to see, the cranes are being used to help straighten her up.

Its sad that it crashed in 2009 and also her sister plane crashed as well

A visitor from - posted Wed January 8, 2014:
This is an once in a lifetime shoot because it should have never happened if you are knowledgeable of loading/unloading and fuel placement. Unlucky for a crew without parameter information. Sad accident. More training recommended for all airlines who own this plane. Personally it's a very solid and structurally sound plane.

It crashed in November 2009. RIP.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu March 11, 2010:
The most surprising fate or a sign of bad news to come... this same plane crashed in Nov 2009 after its tail struck the runway at Shanghai Pudong airport. It was operated by Avient, and crashed just 8 days after being delivered to them...

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 10, 2009:
The crane straps are to let her down gently. After the load is balanced out.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri December 26, 2008:
MD-11 converted has that problem, the same happened two times to Alitalia Cargo MD-11, one time in FCO and another time in MXP. Nice shot, very unusual!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue September 16, 2008:
The same fact appened two times on Alitalia Cargo MD-11 freighters. Very spectacular to see live I suppose

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon August 18, 2008:
Thats a 1 in a million shot, well done! One query though, if the planes nose lifted on its own the/n why are the crane straps underneath the fuselage

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 6, 2008:
OK this MD11 rotated a bit too early.

A visitor from Australia posted Wed March 12, 2008:
I dont like these types of planes.

A visitor from Australia posted Thu August 9, 2007:
This is a real, no tricks were used. this realy happened.

A visitor from United States posted Sun June 11, 2006:
If planes can talk: "No!! I want to stay in the air!!!!!!"

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Fri May 5, 2006:
