The UAE military transport plane delivering humanitarian aid to Afghanistan skidded off a runway while trying to land in bad weather. A fire erupted in the forward fuselage.

A UAE C-130H with serial 1212 was seen in 2011. It's unclear if this airframe was repaired or if this was a new Hercules using the same serial.
