Historical plane damaged at EBZW Zwartberg.
https://www.hbvl.be/cnt/dmf20180701_035 ... -in-hangar
Apparently blown off the the runway after landing. Groundloop? The plane had only recently arrived at Zwartberg. The specialists a vrtnws describe it as a "sportvliegtuigje" - "small recreational plane".
I caught that one when it took off from Ursel, that's sad... :o
Local tv station TV Limburg has an amateur video of the landing and the runway excursion into the hangar:

I flew at EBZW yesterday myself, but left the airfield before this accident happened. There was quite a lot of crosswind and therefore little traffic. Plane landed on RWY 03 with a crosswind from the east. One would thus expect an outbreak in towards the right if the wind catches the tail. The remainder of the leftward outbreak towards the hangar indeed seems to be the result of a ground loop on the grass.

This looks very serious indeed if the pilot decided to divert to JFK instead of the nearest suitable airport MIA, knowing that the only "good" engine might shut down as well.

For those of you who read Polish (I know there are some!), here is a link to the article in Fakt.pl : https://www.fakt.pl/wydarzenia/polityka ... ku/vwdjspt

VRT radio news mentions he made a couple of loopings... with a 70-seater twin turboprop, sounds like a Q400 or ATR72. But ASN speaks - less unlikely - of a barrel roll; and confirms it was a Q400.

Q400 from Horizon Air. A video of the barrell roll is to be viewed in this link : https://cnn.it/2AYw7vV

Now the aviation24.be article about the RAM delays/strike makes sense:

Royal Air Maroc (RAM) flights to Europe and Africa remain very disrupted, with flights cancelled every day since July 20 due to social tensions within the Moroccan national airline. In recent days, passengers, including families with children, have been stuck waiting for theft

:lol:

Obviously a few characters remained in my pen. Please read "waiting for the flight" ;)

Posting from a dumb-phone, perhaps? If so, let this be a warning! I doubt any real pen would commit such transconfiguration ;) which is one of my reasons to prefer a genuine pen for writing.

But for sure you use a Smart pen sharpener, don't you ?

On Dutch tv, hence in Dutch only:

"Recently, there have been 4 serius incidents/crashes with historic aircraft. Are they safe?"
