Default Towbar på rullebanen i Southend

Flaks at dette gikk bra

An aircraft towbar was left on a runway by a pilot who had experienced a "close shave" driving to the airport, an investigators' report said.

The Cessna towbar fell onto the runway departing from London Southend Airport on 7 August.

Its pilot said he had been distracted during his pre-flight checks by an earlier near-miss between his motorcycle and a cyclist.

A plane that landed later ran over the towbar, but no damage was caused.


The aircraft which ran over the towbar was an Embraer 145 carrying 35 passengers from Aberdeen.

Two other aircraft and a vehicle making an inspection for wildlife also used the runway during the 30 minutes the towbar was left in the way, but none of them hit it

Det er vel ikke første gangen dette skjer????

There is no such thing as an ugly airplane. Some airpanes just happen to be misunderstood...
