Fairway becomes a runway


There've been 'Eagles', 'Birdies' and even the odd 'Albatros' at the Links Port Kennedy golf course but GM , Peter Whittle says today's 'Plane' was a first. Peter told Tony McManus nobody was injured but there may be a penalty drop for the landing.

  • Why do these people insist on calling it a Crash Landing? Crash doesn't even enter into it! It was a fully controlled Emergency landing, something ALL pilots must be competent to perform if required. Bob is a highly experienced international airline captain with many thousands of flying hours under his belt. He is a respected aviation writer, and has flying experience on over 100 different types of aircraft. If anyone was qualified to do this, I would put a months wages on him.
