Red face

.....I was on the aircraft immediately in front of the 738 - an RJ100 - and we went around from about 100ft and diverted to DUB. Never been on approach quite as bumpy as that and I fly very often..! Saw the aircraft the next day - surprised it's back in service already.... Everyone was pretty lucky.

...and I was on the aircraft behind, we diverted to Cork... What a dreadful day, one of those where you were up there wishing you were down here-- preferably on a high stool somewhere.

Isn't a stool a small sample the doctor occasionally requests from you Tom....?
