On Saturday 23rd october 2010 a FedEx McDonnell Douglas MD-11F cargo plane was heading to Paris CDG after a scehduled technical landing (fuel-stop) at Budapest Ferihegy (BUD/LHBP) International Airport. The plane was taxying on Taxiway B5 before lining up from runway 13L when it was steered left from the centerline of the Taxiway B5. The left main gears of the MD-11 plane left the "load bearing surface" hitting some taxiway indicator lights and the surface of the edge of the taxiway got broken up due to the weight of the aircraft. The pilots stopped the plane, shut down the engines and they asked for technical assistance. Normal weather conditions were reported at the time of the incident, visibility was good, taxiway was dry.

As the plane was full of cargo and fuel, the ground stuff managed to tow the plane back to the Taxiway on Sunday morning only after the fuel was dumped. They were using 3 trucks to tow the MD-11 out from the hole according to unofficial reports.

The left main gear of the plane was damaged in the incident so a FedEx ATR72 brought some spare-parts for the MD-11 on Sunday. The plane left Budapest Airport on Monday after she got repaired. The cargo was carried by an other MD-11 of FedEx on Sunday to CDG.
