What: Air Cargo Carrier Shorts SD-360 en route from Tupelo to Houston
Where: Houston
When: May 17th 2012
Who: 2 crew
Why: After the Air Cargo Carrier landed at Houston-George Bush Intercontinental Airport, it caught on fire. Aviation Herald claims the cause of the fire was “brakes of the right main gear.”

Emergency services responded.

We haven’t heard if the plane made a hard or fast landing, Houston temps, or if there was some mechanical problem like a lock-up that caused the fire.

Aruba-bound jet incurs Donkey Strike

What: Tiara Air Aruba Shorts 360-100 en route from Las Piedras Venezuela to Aruba
Where: Las Piedras
When: Dec 5th 2011
Who: 29 passengers, 4 crew
Why: Taking off from Las Piedras, the plane struck a donkey with its right main gear.

Pilots continued on to Aruba where they made a safe landing.

There were no injuries. Apparently the forecast for repair is better in Aruba than Las Piedras.

In George’s Point of View

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times, keep the donkeys OFF the runway.

Actually, that’s one thing I never thought I’d need to say
