Turkish Airlines A-330 Rescue!


Recommended Posts

The skidding of the Turkish Airlines Airbus-330 at Kathmandu runway in Mar 2015, rendered the Kathmandu runway and airport unusable since it obstructed the use of full length of the runway. With only about 4000’ of landing distance available at an elevation of about 4500’, the Indian Air Force Herc was called upon for the rescue mission! The IAF Herc airlifted the Air Inflatable Bags & the rescue team from Mumbai to Kathmandu and stopped just short of the Airbus to aid the rescue. ‘Teşekkür Ederim’ from Turkey!
