Tiny,

Why dont you wait until the accident report, nothing to be gained from unconfirmed gossip or rumour, facts are pilot got the machine down and walked away. Happy days.

C Nimbus,

sorry to be pedantic but as this incident seemed to pass off without major damage or injury it would hardly qualify as an accident, hence waiting for the accident report would be futile.

Agreed that the official report will be the be all & end all but in the mean time , all info could be useful, no? No point in an info black out...

Mini,

Well if you want to be pedantic, yes the report will be an "incident report" as opposed to an accident report. Sorry if this upset you!!

If you agree that waiting for an incident report is futile, then I sugest that you contact the IAA or AAIU and let them know that you consider their investigation reports futile, or even better why dont you write your own report based on all the info you can get from websites and newspapers.
