Military? No.

Aircrew? Vaguely.

Seemed like a good idea at 0013h? Probably.

As itís probably Jet Blast inbound anyway, that link took me to

An Indonesian commercial plane has slipped off the runway after landing at Tanah Merah Airport in Papua. The plane reportedly lost control after a dog ran across the runway. Local police spokesman Nurhabri told Metro TV that the plane lost its grip after landing and could not make a left turn.
Iím grateful for that as it linked me to:


A light aircraft has plunged into a storage area for portable toilets in the US. Reports say that the engine cut out at around 150 feet and the pilot had to land short of the runway near Puyallup in Washington state.

That gives a whole new meaning to being taken short. Isnít Puyallup where Bitching Bertha comes from? Iím sure Iíve heard recordings of her saying it over and over again
