Pegasus Airlines: third runway excursion in just over two years …


  1. Pegasus should be grounded as their airline culture and operating procedures allows completely unstable approaches to be continued with disastrous results…..their 5th February accident was a great example of a totally unprofessional approach that displayed appalling airmanship and a total disregard to operational limitations….yet they tried to land!!!!
