View Full Version : Close call at Charlie South!

3rd Feb 2002, 20:20
A Canadair RJ landing at CHS on Thursday 28th dinged a wingtip into the ground on touchdown. CAUSE, the Air Force were running a C-17 with its tail pointed across the touchdown zone?? It appears that the Air Force had some local agreement with the tower that they could do it, provided they called the tower. I guess they forgot and people forgot that the C-17 is not like the older beasts that they used to have there. When will we learn??
