The news site from Honolulu said the pilot was ok. This one gives more detail. It says he got out without a scratch and it just happened the rescue teams were out there practicing at the time.

What I find weird is that two flights bound for HNL were diverted to Kahului. That's kind of out of the way.

Although I don't agree with the "extreme low pass" in the description, this video shows an amazing approach to Vancover In'l's RWY 26R. It also covers the takeoff from FRA, but the real awesomeness is during the approach, which goes right over the Canadian Rockies just NE of YVR.

Absolutely awesome footage from a camera mounted on the main gear strut of an airliner (I'm assuming a 787 from the looks of it - could be wrong though), as it taxies (sped up), takes off, followed by gear retraction, then deployment, landing, and taxi again. Very cool perspective! (nevermind the still shot - dunno why that was chosen, but the video is cool nonetheless)

So in doing some research for the Malta airport (since I have never seen the traffic there before and it's a completely new airport for me), I cam across this spotting video. Very interesting to see how busy this small airfield can get, and what's more interesting is because of the unqiue layout of the runway/taxiway system, they can do intersection takeoffs from the taxiways that allow for the most takeoff distance possible. Cool to watch.

I'm pretty sure the pilot was flying too low. It looks like the guy's head was between the nose and right gear, and a few inches from the bottom of the plane.

yep the pilot was well below glide slope for the approach.But the tourist showed equally bad judgement by staying in harms way to get a brag pic of the underside of a Cessna of all things ;)

Wingtip air-air refueling is super hard...
By the way, I've this photo about the lengendary MiG 21 which shot a B52 over Hanoi. I've saw it once in the museum. Note: the picture was not mine! :mrgreen:

The A380 is ahead of its time. With the resilient passenger traffic growth for times to come (reference from Airbus's Global Market Forecast), plus congested airports, the A380 could not be ignored.

By any chance if you have Instagram, please drop a follow on @rv_aviation02 and if you have Twitter, please drop a follow on @vhaq_aero. Appreciate that!

Ukrainian deep modification and upgrading of Mil Mi-2 named as "Mi-2-MSB" (MSB - "Motor Sich" & Boguslaev) passed test to fly over 7000 meters altitude and THIS IS A NEW WORLD RECORD FOR THIS HELICOPTER! For this it was need only 150 litres of fuel, that is at twice smaller than it can use before this upgrading.

Day before yesterday was eventful at Mumbai as it was for the first time Etihad Air A380 landed on a commercial flight, second time (if my memory is good) an Etihad A380 lands at Mumbai (first time was for an emergency) and the 4th airline in the world to have A380 services to India, other three being: Singapore Air, followed by Lufthansa and then Emirates. :)
A380 during emergency, mid last year!

The first ever A380 landing in Mumbai was in mid 2007... :)
