A Skylease Cargo Boeing 747-400, registration N908AR performing flight GG-4854 from Chicago O'Hare,IL (USA) to Halifax,NS (Canada) with 4 crew, landed on Halifax's runway 14 (length 2350 meters/7700 feet) at 05:06L (09:06Z) but was unable to stop before the end of the runway, overran the end of the runway, went down a slope and through the localizer antenna and came to a stop about 200 meters past the runway end. The four crew received minor injuries, the aircraft received substantial damage with all gear collapsed, engines #2 and #3 separated, engines #1 and #4 damaged and creases in the fuselage skin.

The ATL comment that it was the second over run for the plane AND pilot was interesting.

Persevere and thou shall triumph.

Now, what would be the English equivalent for the synonym proverb "Con paciencia y con saliva"? :twisted:

With patience and saliva. (and confirmed by Google translate)

Must be some crazy Argentinean colloquialism.

I can see a certain gutter mentality, but even that requires some explaining.
