Wasn't us.......... Our chain link fence is stuck in your gear.....
Wasn't us........... Our ILS paint is smeared across your belly....
No spreaka engrish....... Our brick wall has Boeing paint smeared on it.....
Jesus was at the wheel.
"I heard the V1, but whatdja say after that?"
That's why they call it the Tricky Airport.
You can buy a PPL in India. Actually met a 10 hour pilot with his license wanting to rent in the USA.
The real name of the field is Tiruchirappalli International Airport.
If I had to say that, I might hit the wall, too.
And here I thought trying to clear those imaginary 50' obstacles was hard.
Like someone said, who puts a brick wall at the end of the runway.??
Ground control ordered a return?
Yes, to pick up the spare. Can’t leave pins ... errr bricks ... standing.
Hmm, half way to the destination and they have them turn around for safety reasons? Back to the "tricky" airport?
You actually believed what you read?!?
Looks to me like the whole perimeter fence might be the same brick wall. Try the satellite photo in this map:
Tiruchirapalli International Airport TRZ
Having seen a construction site in India, it does not surprise me. The cost of labor is almost nil, so a brick wall might not be so expensive compared to chain link fence.
It doesn’t say “turn around” anywhere.
The msn story was sloppy in using the verb “return” instead of “divert”, to Mumbai. On a map, Mumbai isn’t actually that much out of the way, from TRZ to Dubai.
Another sloppiness by msn: “tricky” is a typo. Trichy is the correct nickname.
Dum Dum airport (VECC, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport) also has a brick wall surrounding it. A bit of trivia- the Dum Dum arsenal used to be in that town, proposed the soft-point bullets now associated by that name.
Maybe the pilot was listening to Pink Floyd
