…And Aircraft Damage Assessment


The 1.3Mb PowerPoint presentation (not recommended for slower connections) is a new pairing of photos not widely distributed, with text previously available online through various sources. AVweb has repeatedly contacted DHL seeking confirmation of the details of the event (and an interview with the pilots) but thus far, the airline has politely refused all of our requests, citing the ongoing investigation — there has been no official confirmation or denial of the “no-hydraulics landing.” Our initial story on the event ran in December, and AVweb has been flooded with e-mails from people claiming to have first-hand knowledge of the incident and confirming the details we presented. At this time, we invite you to have a look for yourself (warning: large file — right click to save to your desktop) at the latest material we received and enjoy it for what it’s worth.
