StatusWritten-off
Commentswritten-off 04.10.83 when it ran off the runway at Leeuwarden AB. The pilot, Captain J.C. De Vries, was unfortunately killed in the incident. The accident resulted from the ingestion of a heron into the engine at high speed during a heavy weight take-off roll. Since the hook system did not function correctly, the arrestor cable was missed and the aircraft left the end of the runway with a speed of approximately 100kts. Immediately thereafter it overturned and came across a ditch which tore off the nose gear and the nose section. When the aircraft came to a halt, everything ahead of the fuel tank was gone
