Remarks: Departing Vegas for Denver over a beautifully lit strip. Pretty much every hotel is visable here, and the very prominent Luxor lights up the sky while Mandalay Bay sits in the foreground. Thanks for a great day's spotting to Chris Kilroy, Chris Burns, Ryan Davis, and Jason Thacher.
Remarks: C/n 11362 - Aborted take off due to a birdstrike in one engine... Landed in a maize field and anyone on board were injuried. One men in a truck was killed oustide the plane, just when the aircraft has passed above a road. Easy to access at the wreck but policemen are on the site to protect the area of looters :-) Crash established on January 25, 2007... Do you think the aircraft is repairable ? I'm not sure :-S
Remarks: This PR B747 had just landed on Runway 13 and was making her way back to the terminal. Unfortunately, the pilots couldn't keep her on track and she drifted off the taxiway and onto the grass, quickly becoming stuck! You can see here the passengers deplaning and a CX B747 landing on Runway 31, as Runway 13 became unusable due to the blockage! (Kodak Print)
