Well why not... If there are never any failures&incidents in your company, no (human) resource problems at all, no organisational problems, no budget problems and you are heavily involved in marketing and name-branding, why should you not invest time and money to make a name change! It's a matter of knowing your priorities! :roll:

This one:

A3511/18 NOTAMN
Q) EBBU/QNMAS/IV/BO /AE/000/999/5054N00432E025
A) EBBR B) 1811120700 C) 1812142359
E) BRUSSELS DVOR/DME BUB FREQ 114.600MHZ CH93X U/S

Normal procedure is following 289 radial from BUB VOR, but as this is U/S now, one has to improvise and leave controlled airspace on a NW heading. And they were a bit late in publishing the comloss notam ;)

Thanks info DIBO.
Good to see the Aviation24 Guard Freq is monitored ;)

I can imagine the Oopsie moment. Did "something" factual triggered it this morning or is it just that the coffee is not so strong?

Emirates Boeing 777 go-around after touchdown at a windy Newcastle Airport



A completely unexpected go around was this Emirates 777 A6-EBX arriving from Dubai today at Newcastle Airport.

The wind had been gusting at around 25 to 31kts this Thursday morning. Having established on the approach for runway 25 and been cleared to land by the controller, it looked like a normal approach in the challenging crosswinds from the south.

As the 777 disappeared behind the hedge before touching down, it slammed down onto runway 25, the spoilers deployed, and the next thing full power was applied for a go around.
I've never seen anything like it here at Newcastle Airport. The aircraft then came in for a 2cnd approach and landed safely

Upon landing the aircraft was inspected and initially there was thought to be damage to the rear landing gear. Upon further inspection though it was deemed safe to fly and the aircraft departed Newcastle for Dubai 45 minutes later than planned.

Brand new VietJet Air Airbus A321neo loses both nose gear tires upon landing at Buon Ma Thuot, Vietnam

They probably didn't loose the tyres.
If they look around they may well find them, still attached to the wheels. ;)

Before :

After :
A321 VietJet.jpg

More seriously, it seems something else was lost in the evac : control !

Should I write: landed so hard that both tires worn of to the rim ?

The evacuation ... I saw that, but the passengers were clearly in distress ... nobody to control the crowd ?
