Sent to my from a pilot friend...don't have the dates or further info, but wanted to share: Africa-Air Charter Flight 737-200 The pilot of this Boeing 737 had a night departure from Hoedspruit, South Africa, to Johannesburg. He proceeded to take the wrong taxiway. Having arrived at a dead end he then attempted to turn around by reversing (using reverse thrust). He misjudged and put the main gear off the taxiway. The aircraft then rolled back down the bank. He then tried to climb out using full power. With the engines that close to the ground grass and stones were ingested. If it wasn't raining the jet blast would probably have set fire to the surrounding bush. Notice the burnt grassy environment in the last photo. The aircraft has been written off. The cost of the engines alone exceeded the insured value. No passengers were on board at the time. Another third world crew at their best!
