The two posters up top and those on the flight. Thatís about it. Landing in Darwin with a sick engine isnít quite like dropping into Shemya with the same and strong crosswinds / low ceilings. Was there a solo, Ozzie cloud in the sky? If so, I hope the crew logged their precious instrument time.

With respect @cxorcist, what's your point?

Some pilots like to make a big deal out of things that arenít, like Ozzies flying imc or A50 computer science majors diverting into Darwin. My apologies if it seems a bit a cheap shot. Perhaps itís simply my rejection of the ever present, Space Shuttle mentality at CX.

And many pilots don't make a big deal over things that are. My impression was the the OP posted the link for information rather than praising the pilots for what any other crew would have been required to do in similar circumstances. No opinion, no hyperbole, just a news report about a diversion; whether it was newsworthy or not is moot. Be that as it may, I certainly don't think it should be reason for bashing your Ozzie colleagues or 'A50 computer science majors' but then again, we often have differing opinions.

Speaking of the space shuttle wasn’t Darwin one of the alternate landing sites available?

Think I'm with Steve on this Cxorcist. Normally I side with your views, but this time it comes across as soapboxing a personal agenda. Breathe.
Yes, sounds like a non-event and it is a nice time of year to visit Darwin, ..... but it is not always like that: Not many places have a Nat Geo studied Thunderstorm with a pet name and its own Wikipedia. Might be a bit of crosswind during cyclone season as well. Shemya wins for ice 'n' snow though!

Sometimes more is more, sometimes less is more. Experience properly learned tells a good pilot the difference. CX often acts as if more is always more, although in fairness this has been slowly changing.

Fuel leak from the engine, sounds like an engine issue!

I simply posted the link for information purposes so CX Pilots could read a news story concerning an event which occurred at the airline. An en-route landing due technical is required to be reported to the authority and could be worth discussion here as we might learn something from it. A diversion due to a thunderstorm at the destination airport is a routine everyday event and would be of far less interest.

Some people need to get a life.

Well handled, as it should be......

A/C back in service now.

Its really simple be it Russia, Australia, wherever, you land where you have to. Where is really the roll of the dice. Either way both crews did well. Itís not a contest.
The end result is why I put my family on CX.

Geez guys give Krismiler a break all he did was post some info on a CX inflight diversion, no additional personal comments added and you all become antagonistic towards him
