Circumstances:
The crew left Paris-Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport at 0254LT on a cargo flight to Bergamo on behalf of DHL Airways. Upon arrival, weather conditions were poor with thunderstorm activity, rain falls and wind. After landing on runway 28, the aircraft was unable to stop within the remaining distance, overran and went through the perimeter fence. It then cross a highway, lost its undercarriage and slid for 520 meters before coming to rest on a second road. While both crew members were unhurt, the aircraft was damaged beyond repair. It is believed that the crew landed long, with a touchdown point between 1,900 and 2,400 meters past the runway threshold (runway 28 is 2,934 meters long). After landing, the crew apparently decided to go around but while decelerating, the aircraft was unable to takeoff, overran and came to rest.

Circumstances:
The aircraft left Paris-Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport at 2321LT on May 18 bound for Cairo. The crew maintained radio contacts with the Greek ATC and was transferred to the Egyptian ATC but failed to respond. Two minutes after the airplane left the Greek airspace, the aircraft fell from FL370 to FL220 in few seconds, apparently making a first turn to the left and then a 360 turn to the right before disappearing from the radar screen at 0237LT while at an altitude of 10'000 feet. It is believed the aircraft crashed into the Mediterranean sea about 280 km northwest of Alexandria, halfway between the Greek island of Crete and the Egyptian coast. The crew did not send any mayday message, thereby all assumptions remains open. It appears that some various debris such as luggage were found on May 20 about 290-300 km north of Alexandria. Two days after the accident, it is confirmed that ACARS messages reported smoke on board, apparently in the lavatory and also in a technical compartment located under the cockpit. Above that, several technical issues were reported by the ACARS system. The CVR has been recovered on June 16, 2016, and the DFDR a day later. As both recorder systems are badly damaged, they will need to be repaired before analyzing any datas.

Circumstances:
Aircraft was carrying 10 tons of freight from Paris-Roissy-CDG to East Midlands. Following an uneventful flight, crew completed the approach and the landing procedure on runway 27. After a normal deceleration, crew was preparing to vacate the runway at low speed when the left main gear strut broke. The gear collapsed and the aircraft sunk on runway. Both pilots were uninjured while the aircraft was badly damaged. It appears the aircraft just undergone an A type maintenance check during the last weekend of 26 and 27 of April, few hours prior to the accident.

Circumstances:
Following an uneventful flight from Leipzig, the crew started the descent to Paris-Roissy-CDG Airport runway 27R. At an altitude of 400 feet on approach, the automatic pilot system was deactivated. At an altitude of 200 feet, the decision height, the crew decided to continue the approach as the runway was in sight and the aircraft was stable. During the last segment, at a height of 50 feet, power levers were reduced to flight idle and the aircraft went into a nose up attitude (maximum value of 11°). Both main gears touched down at a speed of 120 knots but the aircraft bounced twice and went into a pitch down attitude, causing the nose gear to land first during the third touchdown. On impact, the nose gear collapsed and the aircraft slid for dozen yards before coming to rest. All 19 occupants were evacuated safely and the aircraft was later considered as damaged beyond repair.
Probable cause:
During the flare the captain detected that the landing would be hard and in an emergency action, he quickly pulled the nose up without announcing his intention to the first officer who was the pilot flying. This lack of coordination within the flight crew caused a double controls and successive and opposite actions on the flight controls during the bouncing management.

Circumstances:
Crew was performing a night postal flight from Paris-Roissy-CDG Airport to Dole-Jura Airport on behalf of Europe Airpost. Shortly after take off, while climbing to 1,000 feet, left propeller detached and impacted the left part of the fuselage, causing a large hole. Crew declared an emergency and landed safely less than ten minutes later. Aircraft was parked on apron, both pilots were unhurt but aircraft was later considered as damaged beyond repair. The propeller was found in an open field in Mesnil-Amelot, near the airport. Nobody on ground was injured.
Probable cause:
The initial examinations of the propeller blade revealed a fatigue failure on the retaining bolt. Furthermore, the propeller blade, when passing through the airplane’s fuselage, cut the electrical power supply cables to the flight recorders. As a result, no data from the event was recorded after the cables were cut. More detailed examinations will be undertaken on the propeller blade.
