5 Minutes late! When I arrived this CASA 212 had landed with the main gear perpendicular to the runway. The fire brigade is towing the plane to the taxiway. [Nikon D100]

Hola Jordi, good photo of a special incident at your home airport. The nose-up attitude adds to this opportunity. Saludos, M

Weird! I thought C-212 was a fixed gear airplane. Very nice cargo plane widely used by Spanish Air Force but already needs a replacement.

What is it with all these landing gear problems?? The gear seems important enough to make a good product!

Wow! First time I see an airplane being towed from back... Is it the right way for this A/C or will they have structural problems after this operation?

I remember an Iberia B757 landing in Madrid Barajas with no front gear at all on a runway full of foam to avoid sparks. Great picture Jordi, excellent job.
