Flight 8555 was on a routine troop-carrying charter from Kuwait-->Germany-->Bangor, Maine-->California this morning when a flap issue caused the crew to over-fly Bangor and instead divert further south to Pease in Portsmouth, NH. A mechanic is being dispatched to KPSM to fix the plane. But with a gorgeous Red Hook Brewery on premises at Pease Tradeport, we wonder whether those charters will start coming to Pease instead of Bangor! Big grin

Though I don't have any more detail, company web site indicated a slat problem. Final destination is Riverside (March AFB). Planned 24 hour delay.

You must mean the World Airways internal web site, not the external one.

Too bad the beer sucks...!! I was based their with BEX when Red Hook opened... In BGR just a short drive downtown gets you the Sea Dog.... much better beer.

The plane left PSM yesterday, bound for California and its load of 300 troops. One soldier interviewed said the landing was pretty scary. From the Portsmouth newspaper comes this excerpt:

"We were in the air and the plane started doing this," said Otero,
shaking his hand with a back and forth wrist motion. "We had some
trouble with the brakes or landing gear, too, because when we landed,
we hit and skidded sideways. Yeah, it was scary."

SKIDDED SIDEWAYS??? For someone coming back from the war in Iraq, that's saying a lot.

One of our pilot members from my Manchester Airport (NH) Yahoo Group flew into PSM yesterday and reported a 2,000-3,000 foot-long 's-shaped' mark from the main gear of the MD-11...marks that weren't on the runway last week.
