Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Holy fucking shit.

Elco B, this is an awesome diary.  I mean, I like all your plane diaries, but this one is friggin' amazing.

I remember this happening like it was yesterday.  The airport shut down for months afterward, at least as far as commercial flights.  I got stranded in Amman for a while before I finally gave up on my Royal Jordanian ticket and went in by road.  And left the same way six weeks later, since RJ still wasn't flying.

I have never seen the photos or read a description of what the flight crew did.  What an astonishing feat.
