An-2 LY-AFC at Amman (Marka) Jordan 11 May 2001326 viewsSpotted on our trip to Egypt and Jordan:
LY-AFC c/n 1G165-24 ex- CCCP19710, to Israel (Megiddo Airstrip) (über Amman) as 4X-CYC, to RF-FLA (FLARF), back to Estonia, with tech stop in Szeged.
Aqaba (on returning from Amman) May 2001185 viewsWe were parked on the new concrete apron which was surrounded by a tarmac strip. Holes had been dug for ground lighting but were unmarked. In his haste to get away first, the Mooney promptly taxied into one of them with his right undercarriage. Silence...
Aqaba (on returning from Amman) May 2001182 viewsThe Mooney was bodily lifted out of the hole, there was obviously no prop strike, Papa Zulu straightened the bent undercarriage door and the trip to Hurghada continued. No test flight, just go...amazing behaviour!
Aqaba (on returning from Amman) May 2001182 viewsAll went well, except that the take off to the north should have been a right turn after the mountain ridge. The eventual left turn took them over neighbouring Eilat (Israel), but the Israeli controllers must be used to it! Pas de probleme!
