Short Final for 8 November 2004

Recommended Posts

From Avweb.com's twice weekly ezine of things aviating....Short Final Another Airbus story... There is a certain airline that flies Airbus A319s out of Lindberg. The following was overheard there recently... Controller: Roger [A319], turn left heading 140. A319: (No answer) Controller: [A319], Left turn, please. Now make the heading 120. Good rate, please. A319: Ah, Departure, the airplane won't let us do that. (pause) Controller: ...Right. (short pause) Controller: Would you mind putting the airplane on the radio, then?Doc Bryant

Doc,There was one Airbus at the Paris Air Show a few years ago that would not execute a go-around and ended up in the trees near the runway. I worry every time I get aboard one of those.Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN
