Boeing 727 Crash in Colombia


#1

A 727 flight number KH4544 crashed right after takeoff. Video from a spotter showed the aircraft failing to climb from the runway and clipped a perimeter fence around the airport.

Video can be found on here

Warning the video may be disturbing.


#2

I just read some articles in Spanish regarding to it…4 of the 5 crew members are dead unfortunately, @ALFLONSO22 are you aware of this?


#3

That looks real scary. Was this only recently?


#4

An old aircraft. Another classic gone. R.I.P to the victims.


#5

An hour ago max. AvHerald just published a report on it 19 minutes ago.

Just happened today, from AVHerald.com:

An Aerosucre Colombia Boeing 727-200, registration HK-4544 performing a freight flight from Puerto Carrena to Bogota (Colombia) with 5 crew, did not become airborne while taking off from Puerto Carrena, broke through the airport perimeter fences and burst into flames. Two persons survived, three persons were killed.

No, there are a few in service, check your facts.


#9

mis condolencias con las victimas, Fuerza Colombia! My condolences to the victims, did anyone else see the landing gear going up?


#10

Oh, that’s so sad! And such a coincidence someone was filming. RIP


#11

Oh I thought it was retired. Maybe I was wrong but I mean cargo is still flying. But I think that video is completely fake. I searched the news section.


#12

Can you at least prove it?


#13

If AvHerald is reporting it an other credible AVGeek twitter accounts are reporting it it is credible. The news doesn’t always report when there is a crash unless it is high profile. Sadly, in the Western world only the large or well known airline crashes get reported because the news is all about viewership, if a story wont bring in a certain amount of readership you wont find it.


#14

Then did the crew survive? Did people took pictures of the crash because what they always do


#15

Iran Aseman Airlines still operates the plane as a passenger jet.


#16

Okay then show me how many people died


#17

4 of the 5 crew members are dead


#19

It was a cargo plane…no passengers.


#20

Cargo plane…?


#21

Well you told me it was a passenger jet and now a cargo jet. What exactly what you mean?


#22

He told you there are passenger 727s still in service, but this was not one. Thiss argument is not respectful and does not belong on this post.
