Photographer's Remark

Recovery in progress after a spectacular runway overrun. Due to the spoilers not deployed, the automatic brake disarmed and the assymetric thrust reverser, the aircraft overran the runway and ended up in a lagoon! Nobody was injured and the aircraft was repaired after a long working party.
