Engine problems are likely to cause a freighter Saturday night late next to the runway at Maastricht Airport.
The Boeing 747-400ERF of ACT Airlines wanted to take off after 23:00 for a flight to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, but that went wrong.
The crew reported problems with the engines and the plane ended in the grass next to the track.
The device has come to a halt after which the four engines were shut down. The two crew members could leave the plane, which was mostly loaded with vegetables and medicines, unharmed.
The airport will remain closed until the Boeing is locked and the job is clear again.
What has just happened is being investigated by the Aviation Police and the Security Council.
The latest has already announced a few months to take the time and not to make any announcements for the final report.
Fifteen years old
The plane made its first flight in 2002 and was then delivered to Air France. That society flew the device until 2015, after which it was resold.
