A B747 Qantas Flight 1 flying from Sydney to London through Kangaroo Route overrun runway at landing in heavy rain for a Bangkok  stopover, 23-September-1999. This incident was Qantas’ most significant incident in fifty years of jet aircraft operation. There were no significant passenger injuries during an orderly evacuation of the aircraft ordered some 20 minutes after the rough landing. Thirty-eight passengers reported minor injuries. The aircraft was repaired and was returned to service. Here you can see a powerpoint presentation by Peter Thomas about the whole repairing process that took place to resume its flights more than six months after the accident. One can imagine through these photos  how complex and challenging  can become such a work.
