I'm surprised the smaller planes are flying in this.   Fire service out - they'll be up in arms about that. Someone will have been on a 14 break on the snooker table.

The simple answer to your question is no.   We have rules and operating procedures that are developed to mitigate risk as far as possible. You can't illuminate all risk (Sully) but you can, and we d

I think you need to read what I've said again.. They operated outside the rules that are designed to minimise risk. I can't be much clearer than that.

Don't know why the Manx CAA would get involved prior to taxy off the runway, its at the intersection surrounded by firetrucks !

 

Reckon someone may be in the brown stuff !

That does seem very odd. If the tower had observed a tail strike or some other untoward incident during landing, I could quite understand the tower notifying the crew, and even perhaps advising them to shut down on the runway. But the CAA? That is why the maximum wind speed limit for taxiing the Let 410 occurred to me, as that might be a regulatory thing. But having de-planed the passengers, surely they would have towed the thing off the runway tout-suite? Edited by guzzi

Didn't they have one tip over onto the wingtip a few years back while operating in "rather windy conditions"?

Yes. I watched it happen. Extremely lucky it didn't flip upside down and the props didn't shatter through the cabin.

 

Also we haven't got a CAA. We are under the UKs CAA.

As a result of the incident bonatti mentioned an operational limit on maximum wind speed for taxiing the Let410 was introduced.
