Title: Delta 757-251 Has Hard Landing, Sustains Significant Damage
Post by: joeyb747 on August 19, 2019, 05:40:48 AM
"A Delta Airlines Boeing 757-200, registration N543US performing flight DL-414 from New York JFK,NY (USA) to Ponta Delgada (Portugal), landed on Ponta Delgada's runway 12 at 08:24L (08:24Z) but suffered a hard touch down. The aircraft rolled out and taxied to the apron. There were no injuries, the aircraft sustained substantial damage however.

A replacement Boeing 757-200 registration N538US is currently positioning from Atlanta,GA (USA) to Ponta Delgada to perform the return flight."


Article contains images of the damage...looks like Delta is down another 757... The Boeing 757-251 involved (CN 26490 LN 709) was originally delivered to Northwest in 1996.
