Air Berlin pilots suspended after saying 'dignified goodbye' with fly-by stunt at Dsseldorf Airport

Air Berlin pilots suspended after saying 'dignified goodbye' with fly-by stunt at Dsseldorf AirportThe pilots of anAirBerlinflight that performed a fly-past during the insolvent carrier's last long-haul flight to its hub in Dsseldorf have been suspended, theairline said on Wednesday. When coming into land from Miami on Monday morning, the A330 jet flew low across the runway, then pulled up and banked sharply to the left before landing on its second approach. Pilots are trained in such "go-around" procedures for aborted landings, but the manoeuvre was unusual and the German aviation authorities are investigating. "In aviation, safety always comes first. We are taking the incident very seriously," anAirBerlinspokesman said. TheAirBerlinpilot had requested permission from the tower to make a left turn should a go-around be necessary. "We wanted to make a mark, a dignified and emotional goodbye," theAirBerlinpilot was quoted as saying by German broadcaster ZDF. His identity was not given. Another pilot for a different carrier told Reuters that a go-around should be performed only for operational or safety reasons. "Electing to do one if it is known not to be required adds an unnecessary risk," he said. Several videos of the incident can be viewed online. In one, control tower staff can be heard exclaiming as the plane flies past, with one person saying: "We are all in awe." TheAirBerlinspokesman said the videos raised questions that had to be answered as part of the investigation. AirBerlinfiled for insolvency on August 15 and Lufthansa has signed a deal to buy large parts of its operations. Theairline will fly its final short-haul flights under theAirBerlinbrand at the end of this month.

On the internet, government bureaus peppered social media with their favourite phrases from Xi's speech, while photos circulated of children watching Wednesday's congress in classrooms. The carefully orchestrated address was in keeping with the cult of personality that state media have crafted around the Chinese leader, who is expected to consolidate his already formidable power at the week-long conclave.
