TC-SKF (26291/2513) Sky Airlines Boeing 737-400 Antalya.

Many airports around the world have got a disused aircraft parked somewhere on site. They may have been abandoned or impounded or even bought by the airport as a fire or emergency procedures trainer. Sadly, as in this example, they may be the remnants of an accident.

The story of this aircraft is that on 10 Oct 2010, TC-SKF was landing at Antalya (LTAI) on a flight from Karlshrule with 162 pax and crew when the RH MLG collapsed on landing. The passengers evacuated onto the runway without any injuries.

Before the aircraft was even moved off the runway the airline name was covered over with plastic covers (you can still see the marks of this around the name) to reduce any bad publicity to the airline brand, this is very common practice around the world. Unfortunately the plastic has long since vanished and the airlines name is back there for all to see. Sky Airlines ceased operations in 2013.
