The arrestor wire saves on brakes.

Time to buy a lottery ticket.

The runway was extended by 500mtrs before the landing threshold but was not declared operational due to high tension wires on the approach path which were being relocated. Apparently pilot didn't know it and made Approach to land before the operational threshold hitting those wires.

Fully expect that bit of information to be NOTAMíd.

Itís been a few years since I flew the XLS in India and canít remember how clear the printed NOTAMs were!
