Civvy A/C was probably due to sensitivities on the ground, I'd say Mog is not quite ready for third party Military A/C just yet...

Lots of hands on seats etc in the video, approach may have been a bit on the bumpy side.

An awful lot of people for a Prime Ministers Entourage? 90% journos I'd guess, the usual headlines to follow.

All in all a big risk flying that in, how they get it out will be interesting, given the flux state of things on the ground I'd say it will be done at record speed

Just suck the dog into an engine and watch what happens.I spent a year on Mogadish Airport in 1994 and anything is possible.

Sorry, I couldn't help it ... (singing to the tune of "Who let the dogs out ?")

When I saw the report, I thought of this:


Bruno Senna at the Turkish GP2 race in 2008, and inverted wings obviously. You don't have to speak German to get the "hunde" and "mittel of der strasse"

Mogadishu isn't the only place with a stray dog problem....

I am not convinced there was a 'dog' at all. More like crew making excuses for a poor landing.

Cool refering to "misd-agin" / 21st Aug 2011

Quite interesting to read this about Flaps40-Landings with the good old 737 (which we here lovingly call the Bobby)! During almost three decades of Bobby-Flying most of my Landings were - and still are - 40s, never experienced specific difficulties. Actually are much more controllable than 30ers.

Would Bobby be a Classic then? 737 NG's are very roll sensitive with FL 40.
It is very easy to over control and even PIO's are not unusual in gusty conditions.

I'm simply amazed they would fly into Mogadishu in the first place. I've flown over that city a number of times, and I have never seen any aircraft on ground there. Even the HF operators were sitting in Nairobi.
