What about that Avro I saw landing today with a strange SN livery??
It was colourful, there was no S on the tail but it said SN and the S was curved like in Sabena s S in the first stages of its existance in an overall oldfashioned design. Could it be an avant-gout?

I kind of heard there was some kind of rare animal sorts as well as plants that could be found in this area.
Not that I care.
I hope that we will be able to see 737s and A320s landing again on this airport!!!
And maybe it will attract a few LCCs...Wie weet

A little off-topic but my car runs on LPG which is very environment-friendly. If you can modify cars in order to make them run on LPG why not also the planes?

Today a S7 airlines A310 performed an emergency landing after an engine flame out.
Maybe they are out of spare parts down there.

If you want to get some life-insurance money, it is definitely the time for you to book with S7 airlines.

According to crash-aerien.com,

a short circuit might have caused a fuel-tank to catch flames, although this is not confirmed.
Potentially, workers might be trapped on the second floor of the building.
