Tornado runs off the Runway at Newcastle Airport

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Sky news are reporting that a Tornado has run off of the runway at Newcastle Airport..... I know we are short of money and real estate - but I didn't think the RAF had resorted to charter flights from Newcastle!!!

    On a serious note - hope the crew are OK......
  2. I hope the wheels are secure!
    And as for all the shiney stuff in the cockpit......!!!!!

    An RAF jet has crash landed at Newcastle Airport after apparently colliding with a bird.

    Is she all right?
    Does she have big norks?
    Any pictures?
  4. Interesting point.... the BBC news website has a photo which says.... "The Tornado is being made safe by firefighters at the airport" WTF does that mean?
  5. Unload, followed by a load :?

    Are they qualified for that? :wink:
  6. Was it a woman pilot???????? 8O 8)

    Thousands of pounds worth of car . . . .

    A few quids worth of food ingredients . . . .
  8. Bird strike? To (badly) quote Eddie Izzard surely its more like engine suck? Do we have suicide pigeons? That would explain Dick Dastardly having an obsession with catching the pigeon, he wasn't the bad guy at all, he was trying to save humanity and we didn't realise.
  9. Oh great! Now the pigeons are being radicalised. Is there any hope for us?
  10. Northern Birds hard as fu@k, soft southern pilot one head butt he hit the deck.
