A 727 taxying in at CBR with engines spooling down comes to mind
must be something in the air at CBR JT. A manager landed at CBR a number of decades ago to refuel his AVTUR powered machine, after shut down refueler said the hose won't reach so you'll have to move over a bit, Not being a machine you could push he attempted a start, which proved to be unsuccessful due to fuel state.

"Qantas' first aircraft, a 767-200ER with tail number VH-EAJ, was delivered to Qantas on July 1985"

QANTAS didn't get B767s until 1985, so I call BS to the whole story.

'Everything was fine until the plane behind declared a medical,' ah yes, the old 'chest pain' fallback.

There are some squiggly tracks around PER at the moment with some very taxing weather conditions and a power outage at the terminals.

But I certainly wouldn't recommend a water landing right now - 9M swell off the coast.
I can't imagine even Sully trying that one on.

Welcome to Perth Australia 3rd world country. The airport has no standby power or terminal generators due to power outage. Reports are there has been no light, no water in bathrooms, no PA announcements and no food or drinks to purchase with no EFT.

Only way of communicating seem to be by Facebook if you have a working mobile phone. All outbound flights are cancelled. Inbound flights with fuel requirements are being allowed to land. Reports are it has been like this since 2PM and no known restoration time. NO hotels - Chaos.
