Notes:

"Miguel de Unamuno" Exclusive Images of one of the most terrible incidents I’ve witnessed in UIO. The airplane landed at 17:15 with light rain and wet RWY. According to people who saw the airplane land, the aircraft it skid out of control, and over shot the RWY into the grass area. As it hit the grass one of the main landing gears tore off, the aircraft sank into the grass hitting part of the underground tunnel structure, ripping and blowing up other tires making the plane stop. Then engines 1 and 2 hit the ground causing them to rip off the wing. Certainly a terrible incident, thankfully no fatalities! Airport will be closed for about 1 day.

Waaaaaw.... The first major accident for an A340-600 !!!! I have just seen it during his manufacturing and flight test and when I see wing and engines, I could say they are more work for him !!!!
