Buffalo Below

September 2016

In 2007, I had the experience of an aborted landing. As the Jet Airways Boeing 737 was on the final approach to Chandigarh airport, the pilot saw a buffalo crossing the runway. Applying full power, he climbed up for a go-around. I don't think most of the crew members and the passengers were even aware of what happened ...

Boeing ... is an indelible part of the aviation landscape. Its centennial is only the beginning of a long haul of excellence in reaching out to the skies. Boeing has given me nothing but utter joy. I wish it Godspeed!
