N528XJ was being taxied by an engineer and allegedly the brakes failed. The aircraft is now sat in a FED EX hangar at Memphis but has not been written off yet because its only three years old with only about 7000 hrs on the clock. It is repairable but it will need a new front end and possibly new wings.

The photos are interesting as these were taken by the MESABA ground crew at Memphis, and you wouldnt have thought they would want to publicise it.

Oh and by the way the 'white tails' are at Filton not Woodford.
