17 November 2006

A Cielos DC-10 cargo plane overran runway 05 on landing at Barranquilla (BAQ), Colombia at 02:30. The airplane came to rest 60 m past the treshold with a collapsed nose gear. The seven crew members were injured. The flight was en route from Buenos Aires (EZE) to Miami (MIA) with a planned intermediate stop at BAQ. A thundestorm had passed the airport and it was probably still drizzling as the airplane landed. (CPN)
