Remarks: I was standing on the balcony of our room at the Renaissance Hotel at ATL looking elsewhere when I heard two loud booms and looked up to see that this DL MD-88 had blown two tires. The Captain skillfully maneuvered the aircraft onto the high speed taxiway while flame and smoke erupted from the undercarriage. Most surprising was how long it took for the evacuation to commence and for airport fire & rescue to arrive -- at least 5 minutes on both accounts, from the time the plane stopped. All 47 pax and the crew evacuated via the left-hand slides (due to failure of the rear slide) after this photo was taken, with only minor injuries. This was DL2284 from Pittsburgh.
Remarks: DL2284 from Pittsburgh made a hard landing on RWY 8L at 16:15 local time, Picture taken an hour after the incident. Sorry for the bad quality the airplane was too far. Also heathaze was a big factor on the poor quality of the picture.
Remarks: This Bell 206B crash landed near Cap-Chat, Quebec on the 9th of December, 2010. There were five personnel on-board. All five survived with injuries being described
as moderate to minor to three of the pax. The cause for the crash landing is still under investigation as the helo now sits in the yard of Canada Transport (CYOW).
Remarks: Attempted to take off on a very windy day and immediately after rotation a gust of wind sent it back to earth...Nobody was hurt, excepting the aircraft. It was hidden here away from the eyes of the passengers more than a year until the owner came with a truck and took it away.
Remarks: Julliet Tango Sierra's main landing gear collapsed shortly after landing and the aircraft run off the runway. Other than a closed airport and evident damage to the airframe, nothing to regret! (Optimized by DAD).
