"All 35 passengers and 12 crew were able to safely evacuate the aircraft. (..) The aircraft floated long enough for everybody to leave the aircraft and be resuced by locals in their boats."

The airframe (P2-PXE, 13 yo) is partially submerged in salt water, and likely will sit there for some more time barring suitable removal equipment on the island.
Most likely an economical write-off.

Just happening near my home, hot air balloon crashed into a powerline. 6 people on board. At the moment it says that height saviors rescued 4 of them. 2 are still up.

Now apparently confirmed fatal, after one man was supposedly seen to board a boat afterward and turned up dead in the lagoon.

A Saudia Airbus receiving a water cannon salute had an emergency slide activation when the jet of water hit one of the emergency exits (no, I'm not sure either!)

There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.

Water slide! They must have hit the outer door lever just in the right spot.
A million great ideas...

What are the titles on the port side? Appears to be operating in partnership with another carrier/company.
Just once in a while, let us exalt the importance of ideas and information.

^Looks like SkyLease was operating it for a Chinese fishing company. Here's what I've gleaned from a search for the N-number.

from CH-Aviation:

"04.08.2018 - 17:17 UTC
SkyLease Cargo (GG, Miami Int'l) has signed a long-term charter contract with a Chinese lobster processing firm for regular cargo flights between Changsha Huanghua and Chicago O'Hare via Anchorage Ted Stevens, the owner of the concerned aircraft said in a statement.

Flights will be operated with a B747-400(F) N908AR (msn 28026), owned by LCI - Lease Corporation International, an aircraft management arm of the investment company The Libra Group."

(That didn't last long.)

As to the characters on the side Jetphotos has this:

"This aircraft is operated by Sky Lease Cargo for a fishing company. The Chinese characters mean 'Having fish every year'. Since fish also means savings in China, it symbolizes being rich."

(If you've ever wondered why darn near every Chinese and most Japanese restaurants have a tank full of Koi, that's why.)

Certainly not the best weather - looks like a pretty poor choice of runway under the circumstances!

I was just thinking the cargo might have survived without completely turning into week-old houseguests given the deep-freeze conditions. Referring to JLAmber's comment on the smell. I'm not really qualified to talk about the runway choice, but . . . 7700' does seem a little short for a heavy cargo plane on a skating rink. I wonder if the pilots were familiar with the runway or if they'd more typically used 05/23. Halifax appears to have been quite the normal route for that aircraft, but the fact that 14 is asphalt and a half mile shorter makes me wonder if it's just not used as much.

LOT asked passengers to pay for B787 repair so that they can take off for flight LO92 PEK-WAW.

Maintenance at PEK Airport refused Bank transfer and CC-Payment.

SP-LRH had an issue with the water pump.
