Anyone remember a certain ex-CP accidentally selecting reverse with the nose wheel nearly in the grass in a -400?
I think I do but I need to Marshall my thoughts...If it's the event I'm thinking off the version I heard was the nose wheel was actually on the grass....

Common procedure at Skiathos. Remember one guy putting the main wheels on the grass.

"No runway edge lights were harmed during the making of this manoeuvre".

DaveReiduk.
So far on this thread you have pompously asserted various "expert opinions" on what this crew should have done. You have failed to be aware that the runway is 30 meters wide, have failed to be aware that there are no tugs at JSI, have incorrectly interpreted the B757 turning circle chart and have failed to be aware that until recently JSI is a day only airport for Charter Jet aircraft so there has not been any runway edge lights!
Is there anything else you would like to add to this thread so we can all have a good laugh?

Best to get one's facts right before priming the blunderbuss





Oh, and I don't recall making any reference whatsoever to the presence/absence of tugs at JSI, but if you can find one, please feel free to quote it.

Any idea what "until recently" means?

"Until recently" = until some time before the incident we're discussing = irrelevant.

I'd stop digging, if I were you.

Your flippant comment about edge lights, re someone putting his nose wheel on the grass,was inapproriate as the poster was referring to a long ago incident. Hence my "until recently" comment about edge lights..Do try to read comments in context,it'll help with your understanding of difficult to grasp concepts.

The OP made no reference whatsoever to when the gear on the grass event happened.

So, unless you were the pilot involved, any "context" is purely of your own invention.
