Why didn't Bhutan Airlines or Druk Air fly the vaccine in on a regularly scheduled flight? AFAIK TRI-Mg Intra has a kind of contract with several entities such as RED CROSS and similar to do medevac, relief and hospital flights along all Asia...it also says that on their Wikipedia page.

Can you imagine seeing the aircraft trying to land from the ground? I'm sure it looked crazy from all angles. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siCo5LP374o It seems like ground crew wasnt sure if they just witnessed a crash.

To be fair, Paro is very difficult landing. Only turboprops and Bae-146's were able to operate there for years. Even Druk Air only uses A319's now. Not correct...for some time other models are being used there such as boeing 737-700 and Airbus 320. For your info the other bhutanese airline besides ...Jump to post
According skyliner.de first 738 is already fully painted at Guanghzou...any pic please? TksJump to post
I fully recognize this is not important for the final investigation, but it really surprises me i've never heard in the entire ATC comms the words "Pan Pan" or "Mayday"...i really wish all the best for the pilots.Jump to post
Great and amazing job...only a few mere "seconds" if less, from the birds/feathers filmed from the inside to start the decelaration...quick and wise decision, human skills 100% and brakes 100% either..not like this 747 some years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXzkcmQ0AIw Dry runway...Jump to post

However its curious to observe regarding the number of movements (planes itself with landings and take offs) CAN only comes in 8th place with the classic trio ATL-ORD-DFW maintaining the traditional positionJump to post

Hey guys, I was the skipper on that flight. Landing on runway 10 was impossible due to the 10kt tailwind limit our company has. Regarding our company stable approach criteria, all elements were respected and the limiting factor was to be established within the runway edges by 100’ AGL which we were...Jump to post
Hi all...until now i keep this doubt and would kindly request if anyone here could give me some light about it, please.

Agree with Airbus, but regarding MadDog i saw very nasty landings...until this very day the most rough landings (if i can call it landings) i still keep on my memory, one belongs to a British Airtours 707, the second one to a 737-200 Air Europe and the third to complete the TOP3 belongs to a french ...Jump to post

Smoke is seen but the airport fire truck has been out of commission for 2 months because it's missing one of its front wheels.

Hi all...according skyliner-aviation.de ex 744F OM-ACG was re-registered 3 days ago in Kazakhstan as 9U-BBA.

Does anyone here knows more details, possible name of this new Burundian operator, etc?
