Re: Plane Spotters Corner

There is video out there (too big to post in here) that shows that the aircraft touched down, went back up a few feet then slammed down onto the runway with the tail hitting first. Only then did the fire start, presumably when fuel tanks were ruptured.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Planes are not designed to land with take off weight.

This plane landed above its max landing weight. The book allows this in emergency situations but then the plane would need a heavy landing check.

It looks like the plane bounced and the 2nd impact drove the MLG thought its mounting uptown the tank above which cause fuel to pour into the engine which caused the fire.

It's a miracle that anyone survived., and goes to show the next time you flight listen to the crews safely talk. It might save your live as people panic and treat the planes seat belt like a car and try and jab at a non existent button.

Respect to the crew staying until the last seconds and in one case to long to save their passengers.

Makes me wonder if there should be an automatic lock that could be applied by cabin crew that locks all overhead storage so no one could start getting their possessions out and they'd have to just get on with evacuation of the aircraft.
It could definitely save lives.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

N341A - The only flying C-41A (military liaison variant of DC3) left in the world currently stopping at Keflavik en-route for Daks over Normandy next week.

Presumably night stopping so it should fly through UK airspace tomorrow.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

I missed the A380s flying from Stansted to Baku.

There might be some tonight going to Madrid full of Spurs fans.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

We had this smoky old Soviet crate in again this evening. Had the camera handy this time. Unfortunately the sky was dull as ditchwater.

There were 2x AN12s in yesterday and there have been another two already this morning. They're chartered in by Wynne Aviation who have been working with Jaguar Land Rover to ship in parts. Last year there was also a carrier operating out of the Isle of Man with a leased AN-26.

We haven't had the Ruslan in at LJLA for a few years. It used to come in at Christmas to pick up charity boxes. I did pop over to see the Libyan one which came into Manchester a while ago to pick up some construction equipment for Darfur.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Hopefully the 225 will make an appearance sometime at EMA. Last time I saw that fly was in 2015.
