Air Berlin Pilots Pull Dramatic Flypast Stunt for Last Long-Haul Flight

Air Berlin Pilots Pull Dramatic Flypast Stunt for Last Long-Haul Flight

Two pilots for Air Berlin, approaching their last landing into Dusseldorf, Germany, before the carrier's insolvency, instead flew along the runway, banked sharply, then pulled up and flew one last time around the airport.

Footage of the fly-past shows the plane appearing to make a landing attempt at Dusseldorf Airport, before regaining speed and altitude, then making a sharp left to "show its wings".

The Airbus A330, which was flying from Miami, could be seen coming into land before turning on to its side and flying very close to the terminal.

Mark Dantonio makes decision regarding RB LJ Scott
In March, Scott was pulled over by Michigan State University Police and charged with driving on a suspended license. He has rushed for 408 yards and three touchdowns on 83 attempts, but has also coughed it up four times this season.

The pilot has been suspended.

Air Berlin says the manoeuvre had been agreed upon with them before being undertaken by the pilot.

People in the tower are heard clapping when the aeroplane arrives, as the voice of the captain is heard saying in German that Air Berlin will "cease it long-distance flights tomorrow".

GE Dulls on Sour Profit Picture
It dived, as 85 investors sold GE shares while 816 reduced holdings. 35 funds opened positions while 96 raised stakes. The company has a market capitalization of $204.15 billion, a price-to-earnings ratio of 28.72 and a beta of 1.19.

The pilot had requested permission from the tower to make a left turn should a go-around be necessary.

However, another video of the landing taken from the airport's control tower shows the risky move was actually an orchestrated flight path, despite airport employees fearing it would crash, The Sun reported.

The control tower approved the stunt because it was meant to honor the final long-haul flight for the bankrupt airline.
