  • Air Ambulance makes emergency landing at Sydney Airport

    On the evening of 23rd October a Beechcraft King Air 350 (VH-NAO) operating flight AM206 for the NSW Ambulance Service made an emergency landing at YSSY at approx. 18:30 local time with suspected landing gear failure. After a low fly past the airfield to allow ATC personnel in the tower and engineers to check if the landing gear was down and locked it landed safely with medical personnel and patient onboard.

    The flight may be tracked on FR24;!/2012-10-23/07:00/AM206

    ADMIN: Please note this post relates to FR24


    It would seem a technical problem still exists with this aircraft. Operating flight AM203 today 25th October the pilot was required to manually engage the landing gear again after a circuit breaker tripped on approach to YSSY. According to the pilot the aircraft is to be 'checked over' after landing. Again this flight can be tracked on fr24 from approx. 01:15 UTC;!/2012-10-25/01:04/AM203
