I work at CDG for ELAL, the truth is that the pilot set the engines before the push-car had been removed. One engine has been severely damaged. It was the the last flight of the captain before retirement and was awaited in TLV for a ceremony, what a sad story for him. Most people were given hotel rooms for stay till Saturday evening.One Arkia 753 arrived today night to pick up about 260 pax who agreed to fly to TLV (including cabin crew of LY324), all others refused due to Shabat. It was a very tiring and stressful day, may because it's Friday 13 !!!!
The question is for long is the 747 going to be in CDG, and what was it's usual routes ???

Very strange...I would guess there's a signal given to the pilot once the push-back is completed (and the push car removed)...??


But well...it seems he was just to eager to get to TLV asap...:

I bitterly miss the livery that should never have been changed (repetition...)
