31-Aug-2019: Bad day for Turkish Airlines on new Istanbul Airport, two incidents.

Sun Sep 01, 2019 4:06 pm

Regular I would not start a new post for something like this but two independent incidents with same airline, same airport and same jet version on same day...This is worth to be mentioned.
Turkish Airways, new Istanbul Airport, B737-800, 31-Aug-2019, taxiway excursion and jet got stuck.

Turkish Airways, new Istanbul Airport, B737-800, 31-Aug-2019, jet damaged by crew-bus, nice ding in the radar cone.

Some days the odds just aren't in your favor. As a school teacher, I have had those days where I walk in with the best of plans, ready to go, and the odds just throw multiple things at me. Once in a while, I ask, "what are the odds?", because it seems far too ridiculous to be random.

But as we have seen, sooner or later the law of averages catches up. Flight 191, for example, has seen multiple different airlines suffer accidents while using this number, and October 31 has seen more major accidents than most other days, and 1985's aviation safety record compared to the previous year made it seem like planes were falling out of the sky.

Hopefully, the new Istanbul airport will use this as an opportunity to ensure that all personnel review safety instructions, and double-check everyone's understanding of proper procedures.

I'm curious to know how that 738 wound up in the dirt.

It's Turkey in August, so it's going to be hot. So we agree that the airplane did not slide on water or ice, so that leaves crew error or mechanical failure.

Asymmetrical thrust or brakes ? Can’t think of anything lose and even those make little sense
