On March 15, 2000 after PEK-KUL, baggage handlers were unloading 80 canisters weighing 2,000kg when they were hit by the strong toxic fumes. A check by airport fire and rescue personnel revealed the canisters contained a chemical, which is used for rust-proofing. Several canisters had leaked, causing severe damage to the aircraft fuselage. The aircraft was considered as damaged beyond repair after being parked for a year at KUL (Photo: <a href=http://www.airliners.net/open.file/244733/M/>244733</a>).
