EBL Closed For US General

Tue Mar 27, 2007 4:30 pm

Hello everyone,

Just got back on A.NET.....and thought I would post something....I flew in to EBL from VIE last night on AUA......we were 15 minutes from landing when the pilot announced that EBL including the airspace over northern Iraq was closed to all traffic.....because a US general was visiting the area...................we were diverted to SYRIA!!!!!!....and told to refuel at Aleppo airbase.........surrounded by men with guns wondering what the hell we were doing there!!!!....anyway finally got to EBL.

This wasn't the most fascinating post...I KNOW........but it's been a while.  blush
