Well, yes. I would say it sustained damage. Hell, it destroyed the cotton picking airplane dummy!

So glad it came to a FULL STOP and didn't continue off airport property and taxi into downtown Halifax.....Yes it could have been much worse but really, who wrote this AND proofread it??????

Wikipedia article on Skylease says that as of December 2017 this A/C was leased from Aercap and the only B747 operated by Skylease. Aircraft can be replaced -- just glad no one was seriously injured.

Food for thought.
When it comes to aircraft, assuming anything is deadly....

Not sure why Atlas was mentioned in this article. Maybe I am mistaken but I don’t see their name on the registry records at all:

Atlas owns the aircraft and it was dry-leased to Skylease, not that the article makes that clear.
MultiComm
Wouldn’t the registration data indicate the current owner?

not sure what the weather was like but i read that the 747 landed MT to pick up a load of seafood then on to Japan. My question is even if MT, unless winds were an issue why did it land on the shorter runway 14?
MultiComm
This article doesn’t give a whole lot of info but the winds were most certainly NOT favoring this runway ... was anywhere from 5-8 knot tailwind component, wet runway, low ceilings and mist. I’ll leave my opinions off this post but you can guess what they might be.

Why is the landing gear retracted?
bsampson
In this case the gear is not retracted, it collapsed

Wow - is that a write off?

Hard to say for sure from the angle of the photo with the article, but it looks like the top line of fuselage has a discontinuity in it between the wings and the empennage.
TorstenHoff
I suspect so. The aircraft is 22 years old and the damage to the fuselage and engines is extensive. They'll probably strip some parts and scrap the rest.

Yes that poor thing will never fly again... But you bet some of her parts will.

That'll buff right out.

I can’t imagine how it would not be written off.
MultiComm
The inboard engines were ripped off and the outboards severely damaged. Sitting on its belly with several skin wrinkles to top it off.
wireguy
A reliable source told that they salvaged the undercarriage and the rest is to be shredded over the next couple days. Hard to imagine a 747 going through a shredder !
MultiComm
They just take a claw attached to a big Caterpillar and start taking bites out of it. There are videos on YouTube ...

Does anyone know where this plane was headed? Hope it was not an insurance job.
MultiComm
I just assumed Halifax was the destination?
