Airbus Boeing ditching Stats

A recent Business and Commercial Aviation article on water landings said “Between 1976 and July 2003 some 469 civil airplanes experience water contact accidents worldwide. And while many of these involved light planes with unlucky pilots, they also included Sabreliners, Citations, Learjets, Corvettes, Falcons, Airbuses, a Westwind and a Gulfstream and a variety of Boeings, among others.”
My question is, other than an Ethiopian (?) 767 that was hijacked and ditched out of fuel in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Africa, have there been any other Boeing or Airbus intentional ditchings?

ASN ditching, page2
According to ASN, no. But then perhaps the person who wrote the article counted Birgenair, Flash airlines and GF072 as mere water contact accidents.

What about skidding off the end of the runway into the water (even just a bit)? Presumably this too is a "water contact accident"?

A couple spring to mind:

Aerolineas B737

China Airlines B747
