Photo of the Week: F-16

Portuguese Air Force F-16 15133 landing at Madeira
Last Sunday afternoon an Air Astana Embraer that had taken off from Alverca, after a C Check declared emergency due to problems that made the airplane almost uncontrollable.

Initially they wanted to ditch the plane into the sea but after some time and with the help of the ATC and a couple of 2 Portuguese Air Force scrambled to intercept them, they managed to land (at 3rd atempt) the plane at Beja Air Base...

Great job on piloting that Embraer in those conditions and also a good job on the PrtAF pilots...
No Air Astana planes pics so, pic of the week goes for a Portuguese Viper....

You can check the comunications and FR24 video on that situation, HERE
