A First Choice/Thomson 763, G-OOBM had a rather nasty landing at Bristol on Sunday, 3/10, resulting in fuselage damage; the same aircraft also suffered damage in a previous landing while operating for Vietnam Airlines.


BRS has quite a short runway for widebody operations (less than 7,000') and the weather last weekend was not particularly good in the UK.

G-OOBK actually, it'll be back in service after some nice loving attention  


When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

I flew G-TCCA earlier this year returning back from IBZ, my friends know I'm a plane nut and were asking me about the aircraft. Lets put it this way, i chose not reveal my knowledge of its history!  

Great ride though, I'm loving the wingletted 767s from both TCX and TOM. They are huge!

What will the fix to the TOM 767 entail?

Given that the first B787 is due in 16 months, is it worth it?.

First Pic of damage, I think this girl must have hard landing on her forward landing gear.
