Since everyone seems to think its nescessary to fly fighters over sporting events these days, maybe they'll think twice about building they're next stadium right next to an airport.
After the debates and fiascos that led up to the construction of Lincoln Financial Field, Citizen's bank Park and the Wachovia Center (10 years earlier for the latter); I don't think we'll be seeing any new stadium construction in Philadelphia (never mind at the Sports Complex) anytime soon.
With regards to aborted landings, I think the only time I personally saw an aborted landing at PHL
was around last March. A US A321 was approaching 27R, when it looked like it was just about the touch the ground, it ascended back up again. While I didn't have a radio with me I looked over at the far end of the runway and saw that another plane (it was too far for me to fully identify) had not quite exited the runway yet. Sure enough, it circled around and finally landed; while in flight, 2 other aircraft had since landed on 27R.
Wagz, MD11LuxuryLinr, PHLApproach, & Jalto27R,
How often are one or all of you guys over at PHL
? I've been meaning to head out there again. I've been away on vacation and holiday visits during the last few weekends and have not had a chance to do some PHL
spotting; although some of my trips did involve flying out of PHL
. This Saturday, the 18th will be my first 'free' Saturday I've had in a while. Maybe I'll see some of you then.
Have you guys had any 'police issues' at PHL
since the infamous May 23rd bust?
