Recommended Posts

today there were two Tam F-100 crashes, one crashed into a field, and one had to do a belly landing, and now an Emb-120!!!! first mid-sized Fokker-100 jet landed in a grassy field a short distance from a farmhouse near the town of Aracatuba, 325 miles northwest of the city of Sao Paulo. TAM said in a statement none of the 24 passengers on board were seriously hurt, although four were treated for light scrapes and sprains.TAM later confirmed another Fokker-100 was forced to land at the international airport of Viracopos in the city of Campinas, without any landing gear. None of the 42 passengers were hurt, TAM said. Globo reported the plane made the emergency landing after it had hydraulic problems with its landing gear. It skidded 440 yards on a runway on which emergency crews had sprayed foam.
