The A380 landed in Maine due to a medical emergency involving a passenger. My favorite line from the article is as follows; “ The fire department needed to use its aerial ladder to retrieve the patient from the second level of the double-decker A380,”. The full article is below.
Cool article. A pretty short rw for an a380 tho
11,500 feet/3,500 meters?
11500 ft is a pretty long runway.
Planes divert to Bangor more than people probably realize. Here is a good article from a few years ago about the ‘why…’
Imagine the residents near the airport hearing the massive A380 coming through. Definitely different than the regular lighter aircraft.
For what it’s worth, the Antonov An-225 (World’s largest) has been to Bangor.
I bet 99% of the passengers knew that Maine existed 🗿
That would actually be kind of cool, an extra takeoff and landing! No so cool for whoever had the medical emergency…
Can I also pointed out the nice little KC-135s behind it.
