Boeing 757-200

7

Apparently, I never actually put this on tumblr.

My own little ‘unsettling’ story of sorts.
The first photo is one that a 12 years old me took on the 2nd of July, 1997.
I was sitting in the jumpseat of a Britannia Boeing 757-200, as it turned onto final approach at Newcastle Intl (EGNT) on the way back from a two week holiday in Rhodes, one of the Greek islands.

On the flight out, I’d visited the flight deck and got on well enough with the crew that I spent the majority of the flight there, even as other people and kids came and went, and was invited to stay up front for landing, even given my own headset to listen in to ATC.
Little did we know at the time that such things would soon be consigned to history.
The crew had passed on the word of my return flight, so on the way home I was again allowed to stay up front for landing, this time with my old fashioned film camera at the ready.

The aircrafts registration number can be seen on the little white plate, as well as with the signatures.
G-BYAG.

Just over two years later, on the 14th of September, 1999 just before midnight and in the middle of a thunderstorm with heavy rain, a Britannia 757 suffered a severe crash landing in Gerona, Spain.
Although there were no fatalities in the actual crash, it was still front page news in the UK.
Something didn’t quite sit right with me when I saw the photos though, and I dug out my own photo from two years earlier to compare the registration numbers.
G-BYAG. It was the same plane.

The last photo inparticualr is a bit disconcerting. That’s the same flightdeck, though obviously the window pillar in front of the Captain’s seat on the left wasn’t covered in blood.

Delta plane makes emergency landing after fist fight between female crew members

A Delta passenger plane heading from Los Angeles to Minneapolis on 22 January was forced to make an emergency landing after a fist fight between two crew members could not be stopped mid-air. According to reports, two female employees got into an altercation 40 minutes into the flight.

A third female crewmember reportedly tried to stop the fight at an altitude of 37,000 feet, however she ended up with a facial injury. Eventually, the captain of the Boeing 757-200 plane took charge and announced an emergency landing.

The captain decided to land the plane at Salt Lake City in Utah grounding nearly 300 passengers for 80 minutes. The two flight attendants who were engaged in the brawl along with a third crew member were then asked to exit the plane, while back-up crew was being arranged to come on board.

Passengers were given air miles and travel vouchers upon arriving in Minneapolis along with letters from the airline, apologising for the delay. “We apologise to those customers who were inconvenienced after flight 2598 from Los Angeles to Minneapolis made an unscheduled stop in Salt Lake City following an altercation involving two flight attendants on board,” the airline said in a statement, according to as MSN News report.

“The actions of these crew members in no way reflect the values and professionalism we expect from all of our employees. We strive to ensure that every customer has a great experience with Delta. We regret that our customers’ experience did not live up to our expectations.”

In other interesting mid-air news, a Singapore airlines cargo flight heading from Australia to Kuala Lumpur was reportedly forced to make an emergency landing in Bali after 2,186 sheep set off the smoke alarm on 26 October. After emergency services could not detect any smoke, it was believed the alarm must have been set off by exhaust gases and manure from the sheep on board.

Donald Trump's plane does dramatic flyby as 'Air Force One' theme song plays at campaign rally

(Twitter/screensot)
Real-estate mogul Donald Trump held another one of his airport-hangar rallies on Saturday.

The Republican presidential front-runner landed his plane in Dubuque, Iowa — but not before showing off a little bit.

Trump’s plane did a flyby as the theme song from “Air Force One” played before pulling up his own his “Trump Force One.” He has a personal Boeing 757-200 jet with “TRUMP” written in giant letters across the side.

He did a similar stunt last December at an airport hangar in Mesa, Arizona.
