Anyone hear about a UA 747 going off the runway in FRU? Apparently the airport was closed for a while because of it.


Nice Trip Report!!! Great Pics, thanks for posting!!!! B747Forever

Do you mean FRA? I don't know why a UA 747 would be in Kyrgyzstan (other than a troop charter I guess).

I assume you mean FRA? UA doesn't serve FRU.

Not sure what the circumstances were, but yes there was a 744 flight in FRU today that returned to blocks and subsequently was rescheduled with almost 24hours delay.

No, I meant FRU UAFM and it would have been a troop charter.

I'm guessing then that the 744 was N194UA?

It is N194UA and was operating as 1886/1Dec FRU-HHN (Franklfurt Hahn). United.com shows it returned to the gate at FRU 2.5 hours after push.

Flight 1886 now sked FRU-HHN a day late 12/2, then shows sked HHN-GTB.

GTB -Genting, Malaysia - a small area near Kuala Lumpur and I can't find the airport on Google Earth and World Airport Codes show it on another island, but there is no airport at the GPS coordianates. Think that's a typo?

There are occasionally military charters to the 'stans on UA, from time to time. So FRU(Biskek) would make sense.

GTB is an FAA code, not an IATA code it seems. GTB=Wheeler-Sack Army Airfield

Surprised to hear about UA 747s in Bishkek.

Indeed. Delta does semi-regular military charters to Bishkek (FRU) as well.

Hmm, I'm a bit surprised at this. While the runway is pretty rough, the taxiways are plenty wide and the markings are fine. I've often been on the ramp in FRU, and have envied UA, DL, and all the other big boys. They've got the range for non-stop back to Europe, whereas we have to stop in TBS if we're full. The tech stop is somewhat softened, though, by the ground handler always giving us a case of Georgian wine.

FRU is the big hot spot for troop movements.

Just checked weather and notams for FRU. "Runway 08 cleared, friction coefficient 0.70 (good braking action)
and they are reporting freezing fog.

Maybe it slid off in bad weather. Freezing fog is bad news.

Atlas Air is a big mover of troops to FRU. UA and DL probably supplement that lift from time to time.

Here's the latest Atlas flight heading to FRU: http://flightaware.com/live/flight/GTI2456

UA 1886 did operate FRU-HHN-GTB 24 hours late without incident after departing FRU. I don't know if we'll find out exactly what happened, but my guess is after the aircraft came back to the gate in FRU, the crew was timed out for the day, thus the 24 hour delay.
