Hard Landing Creases 767 Fuselage

It is likely the flying days of an Atlas Air Boeing 767 are over after “hard landing” at Portsmouth Airport in New Hampshire on Friday. The old airliner, filled with troops returning home, hit the ground hard enough for the fuselage to buckle and leave a crease in the skin. There were also reports that the collision with earth ripped fixtures from the ceiling inside the cabin. There were no reported injuries among the troops.

The number of passengers aboard wasn’t immediately released but the aircraft, a 300 model, can carry up to 351 people in all economy configuration and the troop flights normally fly full. As of Sunday, accident websites were reporting the aircraft was still on the ground in Portsmouth. The sites are reporting that an inspection revealed serious damage to the aircraft.

Howie, not to worry. You need to include the URL inbetween the IMG tags and not the URL tags.

Have a look at this post which will show you how to do it: viewtopic.php?f=88&t=20773
