On 9 January, a QantasLink Fokker 100 (VH-NHY) operated domestic flight QF2650 between Perth and Newman Airport. During landing in heavy rain, however, the aircraft overran the end of runway 05 coming to stop on paved overrun area. Nobody got injured during the mishap.
Bart Noëth: Since 1996, I have been working in the Belgian airline industry, from a weekend job as a cabin aircraft cleaner to a flight attendant. After the demise of Sabena - in 2001, I created a website called www.luchtzak.be, originally a meeting place for plane spotters and aviation freaks. Since 2017, the website changed into a professional news site. Next to aviation, I love to travel, wine and dine and enjoy my time off(-line) with my girlfriend, friends and family. My favourite football squad is KV Mechelen, I am an Ironman 70.3 finisher and my ambition is to complete a full Ironman.
