On April 7, 2022 a DHL Boeing 757-200F reported hydraulic control issues shortly after leaving Juan Santamaria International Airport (Costa Rica) and returned to the airport. Upon touch down the aircraft managed to make an emergency landing however the trip down the runway was a harrowing one for the crew. The aircraft was almost out of runway when it tried to turn onto a taxiway while still going too fast the turn, it fell into an embankment where the aircraft did a 180 degree turn and spit in two.
Not much is known as to what happened after landing however the two pilots were retrieved from the aircraft unharmed. The incident is currently under investigation.
What do you think happened? Is the 757 a safe aircraft?
We look forward to your comments.
