Beschrijving:
A Federal Express McDonnell-Douglas MD-10 cargo plane, registration N370FE, suffered a collapse of the left main landing gear while landing on runway 10L at Fort Lauderdale International Airport, Florida.
Flight FX910 originated from Memphis International Airport in Tennessee with a crew of two on board. Following the landing gear collapse, the no.1 engine pylon was severed and a significant fire erupted in that area. The aircraft came to rest on the edge of the runway, 1934 meters past the runway threshold of runway 10L. An explosion occurred some 75 seconds after the airplane came to a stop, blowing a wing panel in the air. The airport fire services arrived on scene about 1 minute and 45 seconds after the plane stopped. By then the left wing was fully engulfed in flames. The fire consumed the left hand wing, outboard of the no.1 engine.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The failure of the left main landing gear (MLG) due to fatigue cracking that initiated at a corrosion pit. The pit formed in the absence of a required protective cadmium coating the cause of which could not be determined from available evidence. Contributing to the failure of the left MLG was the operator's overhaul limit, which exceeded that recommended by the airplane manufacturer without sufficient data and analysis to ensure crack detection before it progressed to failure."
