Contract Air Cargo Freight Convair Damaged in Guatemala Landing
What: IFL Group/Contract Air Cargo Convair CV-440 en route from Miami to Guatemala City
Where: Guatemala City
When: May 11th 2012
Who: 2 crew
Why: The Contract Air Cargo freight flight landing in Guatemala City on Friday had a less than stellar landing.
On landing, the nose gear crumpled. After one of the propellers impacted the runway, it disengaged. Remarkably, no one was reported as injured, although the plane may be a write-off.
Civil aviation spokeswoman Oddra Lacs said that the Airport was shut down for four hours after the crash-landing about 100 yards the cargo hangers.
The certificate of the IFL GROUP INC plane was issued on 12/13/1994
