Take off Rwy 18... Only 12 days later this aircraft (operating flight LH8460) veered off the runway and bursted into flames at Riyadh. Fortunately no fatalities have been reported. The crew suffered injuries and were taken to hospitals.

You know, I tell you that after 40 years of following aircraft news, the DC-10 is one type that seems to have always had some problem. There is something about the design that makes it less easy to manage - right down to ground handling - and more likely to be in an incident than others. I just checked stats and it is true - and believe it or not, the MD-11 stats are worse than the DC-10. Only the Fokker F-28, Douglas DC-8 & Boeing 707 "Hull Loss Accident Rates" are worse. One place to see Commmercial Jet Fleet Statistics for years 1959-2009 is: http://www.boeing.com/news/techissues/pdf/statsum.pdf
