On Aug 25th 2010 while performing flight from Tallinn to Helsinki on behalf of DHL, SP-FDP rejected takeoff from RWY 08 at high speed. The airline reported that the accident was caused by human error. During the takeoff run when the nose gear was lifted off the runway and roll continued on the main wheels, the flight engineer retracted the gear prematurely. Airport was closed for 4.5 hours. On the photo - the plane is sitting on the trailer at the end of TWY A. My 1000th photo on Airliners.net!

Nice 1000 :) Well, that new piece of landing gear sure looks a lot sturdier! Johnny Kristensen
