Unfallbericht:
VIASA Flight 940 approached Ezeiza runway 35 in poor weather (800 feet cloud base, rain showers and a crosswind component). The plane touched down approximately 750-800 m from the threshold and began to aquaplane. The DC-10 could not be stopped on the 2800 m long runway and overran onto soft ground by 120 m. The nosegear leg collapsed rearward, causing engines no. 1 and 3 to strike the ground.
The aircraft was stored at Ezeiza for a long time before being broken up in November 1998.
