Pacific Aeromotive Corporation aircraft sitting down without engines,covered by the dust. This plane (previously registered as OO-DLL) is a piece of aviation history. It was hit by the anti-aircraft missile after take-off from Baghdad airport (NOV 22, 2003). Although left wing damage, its crew landed back at the airport.

Yeah, a bit of dust for a bird who survived the impossible.

They landed and skidded off the runway into a... MINE FIELD! Captain Eric Gennotte, First Officer Steeve Michielsen and flight engineer Mario Rofail have truly used 8 out their 9 lives!!! Splendid job surviving all this! Fight till the end - that's the way!

This is a depressing shot and even more so because the building behind it looks a lot like the old south wing of my high school, colours and all. This picture just makes you want to fly away from it all. Poor bird!

Still proud of that airmanship of those fellow Belgians.

Sad to see this bird in an almost abandoned condition... but then again it is good to see it has not been scrunched to scrap and still stands there to remind us that solid panic-free airmanship and a smidge of luck can bring you and your craft through almost anything...
