A Wizz Air plane could not land yesterday in Nice, France, due to the extreme winds. However, the pilot did not know that at first, and carried out an unexpected move leaving many passengers sick. Below you may read the details.
According to telex.hu, a Wizz Air plane could not touch down at the airport of Nice, on the French Riviera yesterday. Therefore, the aircraft flew to Marseille, but the concerning part is what happened in between. The plane took off in Budapest under the call sign W62263 at 12.15 PM, and should have landed in Nice at 2.20 PM. However, it never arrived in the world-known Riviera town.
It approached it, but because of the strong winds, the pilot decided to take two turns above the sea and tried to land only after that. The aircraft approached the runway smoothly. But then the pilot carried out a so-called go-around. He elevated the plane again and left the airport. Afterwards, he landed in Marseille, 200 kilometres away from the West.
Based on the estimate of Flightradar24, the plane’s height over the runway was 122 metres when the pilot started to ascend again because of the wind. However, a reader of telex.hu does not believe that calculation. He has experience flying a chopper and states they were only a couple of metres above the runway when the pilot carried out the move.
Anyway, many got sick on board after the move. Wizz Air sent a bus for the passengers after they landed at the airport of Marseille to take them back to Nice.
Bit of Harry Houdini – in the Captains seat cockpit of this aircraft /
Thank-fully – when “terra firma” finally happened, besides a number of “filled” chunder paper bags, that was the extent of the passenger THRILLING & Adventurous Flight.
Piss Air is going down and down it’s the end of the good times for Piss Air. Long live Ryan Air.
Appreciate supporting the company with faith.
We will head to London and Hong Kong soon.
Pilot is responsibly for many lives onboard. A decision maid by the captain must be received in fair manner. He and only he knows what’s the best course of action, with his years of experience and situation. Losing couple of hours and sick stomach is way better than serious injuries or death.
