This one is a bit old but it just got more interesting

June 1, 2001

I have already written about my flight from TGU-MIA, it can be accessed at:

The second flight that day was on an American A300.
The A300 was N14053 (crashed in Queens on Nov. 12, 2001) I had seat 8A (Bulkhead behind the bathroom) This gave me a good view of the left side engine. My mom and I enjoyed the takeoff sound of the engine. It was more of a whine than a powerful takeoff. The trip up to Newark was great. The service on the flight was par for domestic flying.

On approach into Newark, something happened with my eye. The weeks before we left to go to the States, I had been battling a cold. When the decompression of the plane occurred, I felt as though my right eye was being ripped from its socket. It was the wierdest thing. Throughout most of the approach, I was not able to see beyond the engine because of the storms along the east coast. We landed on runway 4L. The runway was wet and we used most of the runway to slow down. After taxing to Gate 35 we disembarked.
When N14053 crashed, I did not know that it was that same aircraft we had been on. I went to the board of transportation website and found out the registration #.

Comments about this would be nice.

That thing that happened to your eyes sounds a bit scary to me. You were on the same plane that crashed in queens NY!!! Wow, if i were you i'd be pretty freaked out. Anyway how was the A300 and did you enjoy your flight?


In Arsene we trust!!

The A300 was great. It was the second time I had flown on a widebody aircraft (both times with the A300, one on CO). The seats were comfortable except that I didnt have a window that was infront of me. I enjoyed the inflight entertainment (although the screens were kinda small and far away. It was a enjoyable flight on AA.

TGUman was the A300 that you flew in equipped with the MRTC (More room throughout Coach).

I think so. I was at bulkhead seat so I could not tell you. Most of AA fleet is MRTC by now so I would guess that I probably is.
