Anybody heard of the B757 on final to ENJB instead of ENTO? It happened 9/18/00. The pilots of the British registered plane (the one in the picture) were not familiar with the area, and the fact that ENJB was not marked on the Jepp maps, made it easy to misunderstand. ENJB is only 6NM northeast of ENTO, and both airports have 18-36 RWYs. ENTO has a 9347 ft runway and has taken down most kinds of airplanes. ENJB has a 1870 feet runway and is barely used for anything but gliders. Both ATC and the crew noticed that something was wrong, and aborted the landing and headed for ENTO, where they landed without any events. After this, I believe ENJB is included on Jepp maps, and with a warning like the one SK has used for years on their approach maps to ENTO,
”WARNING: Jarlsberg AD 6NM NNE Torp
Do not mistake this AD for Torp”
For those of you that understand Norwegian, the report can be found at
For those of you that don't, sorry, but I couldn't find the report in English.
Anybody in here know of other, similar stories?
