seen one while going to shimla. The truck was carrying steel rods. It happened as the driver tried to overtake another truck and tried to increase speed suddenly..

This also happens around here with heavily loaded tractor trolleys (usually overloaded with Cement bags) doing wheelies while trying to climb flyovers! Hilarious to see but dangerous if you're coming from the opposing side.

This incident happened in Mexico City, Aeropuerto Internacional "Benito Juárez" de la Ciudad de México (AICM) airport, two years back (Thu. 13-April-2006).

The aircraft had flown in from Ecuador (Simon Bolivar airport) with a huge consignment of (would you believe it) flowers!

The 14-year old McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30F freighter (registration: PR-LGE, construction no. 48410) belonging to Varig-log, was being unloaded inexpertly.

Ground personnel removed cargo from the forward hold before offloading the main deck and the aft hold.

Pilots noticed something wrong when they tried to set up the flight management system (FMS) prior to departure. Due to the initial movement of the nose gear, slightly off the ground, the ground sensor gave several alerts.

However when the last cargo pallet was removed from the forward cargo hold, the center-of-gravity shifted and the aircraft abruptly pitched up, causing the tail to strike the ground.

There was minor damage. But a loader got his arm seriously injured.
