This Hurk came in an interesting way to its end: on June 10th, 2005, Loki's runway was blocked by HS748 5Y-SFE which had made a gear up landing. The crew of the L100 decided to land anyway and landed hard just before the beginning of the runway. The Hercules broke in two and came to a halt next to Foxtrot Echo. Alpha Sierra got repaired, but just before she reached completion, the repair-contractor left without paying his staff. The Hurk was taken half apart again and now she is going nowhere anymore.
