Never saw such damage like this

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue June 27, 2006:
The central gear was lost after touchdown in runway 11R/29L from SBBR. The belly suffered great damages, but no passenger was wounded.
Currently the aircraft was stored in gate 14 at SBBR, awaiting repairs.

A visitor from Mexico posted Mon June 26, 2006:
Yeah! Rather the central gear than an engine. How was it lost? T.B.

Another fine example of why the throes of bankruptcy are so nasty. Maintenance? Right.

If it's truely a case of lack of maint. I am not surprised about the financial state of this airline.

A visitor from United States posted Sun June 25, 2006:
Hope everybody on that flight was ok.

A visitor from Canada posted Sun June 25, 2006:
The airline was in such a bad state that even the central wheels had to bail out! mon dieu!

Finnair recently bought a used MD11 from Varig. After reading a story about that plane this photo doesn´t surprise me so much.

A visitor from United States posted Sun June 25, 2006:
OMG…Talk about adequate maintenance, At least she didn’t lose an engine in-flight!!

A visitor from China posted Sun June 25, 2006:
