Yes it happened as p7 said - more or less. But a separate thread may be more appropriate than on This EK 35 thread

1800 kg’s is more than enough in a little jet. Roughly 18 minutes in a 777-300 and 21 minutes in 777-200at cruise speed.
That's exactly what makes it efficient
The fatboy wouldn't even reach K5 taxiing with that amount .....

Way too much 'trial by media (social or otherwise)' going on these days.
Iím afraid to say that itís gospel. Take a peek at the internal reporting, there were 3 different spins put on it, somehow, and on the back of recent events elsewhere, surely questions must be asked in the puzzle palace, at the very least. Never mind the NAA investigative bodies.
