What happened to EI-BUA at Weston yesterday?

Post by Whisky Tango » Mon Sep 29, 2008 9:22 am

I was having lunch in the Skyview restaurant at about 2pm yesterday when I saw several people, including a 4x4, going down to the far end of taxiway A, where EI-BUA had taxied to. It was on the grass, and I think in contact with the sign. They lifted the nose and pushed it back into the opposite grass verge near the perimeter fencing, then the three occupants hitched a ride back to the terminal in the 4x4.

Anyone know what happened? Did they hit the sign while doing run-up checks?

The aircraft did not hit a sign it got a flat nose wheel. It was then pushed back onto the grass out of the way of an arriving citation. Amazing how rumours start!!

Ah ok, it's just that from my vantage point it looked to be right on top of the sign. Still don't know why it was on the grass though?? :wink:

The reason it was parked on the grass is because all of our aircraft are parked on the grass..

I know that, I was actually wondering why it seemed to be on the grass at the Apron sign at the A-C intersection when the guys came down to it. It had been doing its run-ups checks there. Did it get the flat cos it went on on the grass in the first place?

Unless you have any involvement in the aircraft I would suggest that it's not any of your business and I'd advise you to think twice in future before posting unsubstantiated "I thought i thaw a puttycat" rumour on a very public forum.

People using this forum may have a high degree of anonymity but when an aircraft registration is quoted, it uniquely identifies the owner. Internet search engines will bring up all sorts of stuff - including comments on this forum - when a reg is entered.
Sometimes we misunderstand what we see and surely no-one wants to create un-necessary problems for other people through our mis-perceptions.

Exactly, I'm sorry I opened my mouth now, some people are very touchy and take things the wrong way. :roll: Maybe these people should go and tell the AAIA not to mention the reg's of all the aircraft they investigate in their incident reports lest the owners kick up (and before you say it I'm not calling Sunday's "incident" an incident in the that sense). :wink:

Precisely why I asked in my first post if anyone knew what happened (If anything)

Hey,

Dont be sorry, Some people on here are very touchy....

Here's the defiition to a FORUM for yee who dont know:
A public place for open discussion

We dont have to have a means to an end....
Or know the FACTS

I would have also being interested in what happened to UA if i'd have been there and noticed anything out of the ordinary :D

Yes, of course, because aircraft cant taxi on grass without getting punctures.

M747,

I have no connection with the aircraft nor the airfield but I do have the good sense not to go on a public forum and concoct some possible incident without knowing the facts. If it bothered me that much I'd have the tact to ask someone in the know quietly and not the entire community on a public website.

WT,
A perfectly satisfactory explanation was offered why not leave it at that. It is in the very act of persisting in pushing your "from a distance" explanation that you could possibly create a problem for someone where none exists. StrikeC hit the nail on the head in his post above.

Im glad at least that you had the sense to delete your last comment.
