I was at MAN
yesterday travelling back home to USA. I could not believe the whole situation. The 321 was G-SMTJ, it came back and parked next to the BMI
320 I was travelling down to LHR
The Turkish 738 landed on 06R and was followed by the Ryanair 732. The TK
landed and taxied off the earlier runway turn off, while the Ryanair continued at high speed to runway end and shot in front of TK
, and boy was he travelling, never seen anything like it. The FR
732 just continued taxiing at high speed right across 06L, making the MYT 321 brake hard on it's take off run, with a huge amount of smoke coming from the brakes themselves. Unfortunately for our FR
friend there was a European 742 held up in front of him, so he did not get too far after clearing the runway. The 321 did attempt to go to the runway again, but returned back to it's original stand. It was still there when we left.
I don't know if it was air traffic error or FR
, but from my view point this guy was a danger to himself and the pax. The speed at which he turned the plane must have put a huge amount of pressure on the nose gear. If I were MYT I would get a lawyer on this incident. Don't thing I will use that airline, my life is important to me.
