Sorry for OT: Looking at the satelite photos on Google Maps I see the small civilian apron in the south with 3 stands and huge helicopter aprons north of the rwy. Is this an oil field area with heavy chopper ops or a military field with some sqn of Algerian choppers?

Skyservice (of Canada) had a 767 similarly damaged at Punta Cana about 2 years ago. It's back in service now. Was reparied in situ (IIRC by Boeing themselves).

"picture withdrawn : Algeria being quite a secretive country, the author requested removal..... sorry"

Sounds like "Catch 22" is alive and well and living in Algeria!


PS I bet the flight crew creased themselves as well .....
