MD-11 Down In China

At Least Three Fatalities Reported On Freighter

ANN is monitoring reports of the crash of  Boeing MD-11F Freighter in Shanghai, China. Current reports indicate that the aircraft was crewed by seven people and that four have survived the accident with injuries. The accident occurred on takeoff at 0816 local time, while departing from Shanghai Pudong International Airport's Runway 35R, bound for Kyrgyzstan. Flight Z3324 went off the end of the runway, with no reported injuries to those on the ground but has been "disintegrated in flames" and is considered a writeoff. 

The MD-11F is reported to be a new aircraft for Avient (reportedly registered as Z-BAV) and was only recently introduced to Avient's Boeing-centric fleet. The airframe was built in 1991 and was added in order to be an initial step in upgrading an aging fleet of DC-10s. This airframe also saw service for Korean Air and Varig.

Shanghai Pudong International Airport

The Avient website reports that, "An Avient Aviation operated aircraft was involved in an accident at approximate 00:16 GMT today while the aircraft, a McDonnell Douglas MD11 Freighter, was operating a charter freight  flight from Pudong International Airport in China. Preliminary information indicates that the accident occurred on takeoff from Pudong International Airport. The aircraft was carrying a crew of 7. At this time, the full resources of Avient's accident response team have been mobilized and will be devoted to cooperating with all authorities responding to the accident."

Avient DC-10-30F

Avient is a freight operation with headquarters in Harare, Zimbabwe, and additional offices in the UK - operating a fleet of owned aircraft and trucks that provide operations in Africa, Asia and Europe. Operations reportedly encompass 34 different countries with over 55 branches and 130 reception points worldwide. The current aircraft fleet includes DC-10-30Fs, leased 727-200Fs and an IL-76.
