today I heard about a russian pilot who tried to land @ ben gurion / israel and almost touched down on a nearby motorway. Sure, russia .. tupolev you might say but sources also told me that he was the sixt pilot this month and due to bad guidance lights @ ben gurion. i actually can`t believe that so this is why I am asking now. Has anyone more infos on that topic ?

RUSSIAN PILOT MISTAKES HIGHWAY FOR RUNWAY: A Russian pilot flying a Tupelov 134 carrying 40 passengers was at 300 feet, lining up to land on the busy Jerusalem-Tel Aviv Highway, when controllers at Ben Gurion Airport got his attention and told him to abort. The pilot went around and landed on a runway. Israel's Civil Aviation Authority said the pilot wasn't drunk, but had a very poor command of English. The BRZ Airlines plane makes a weekly flight to Israel -- stay away from it.

ben gurion has 3 ruways .one belongs to the airforce and civil landings is not allowed.another one isn't in use because of noise problems (due to a high court rolling).that leaves just one runway but the main problem is the very poor command of English by the russion pilots.
