    With a storm passing through the area, visibility rapidly falling, and a go-around conducted minutes beforehand on an initial approach to Runway 15, the crew onboard a freshly re-registered Boeing 757 Package Freighter return to the airfield and complete a successful landing at Birmingham Airport, on an evening crew training flight out of Budapest’s Ferenc Liszt International Airport, in northern Hungary.

    With the aircraft still wearing the remnants of her recent operation under the Liège-based cargo specialists ASL Airlines Belgium as OE-LFB, the aircraft has been stored at Budapest for some time, and recently switched to her new Bulgarian registration with an as-yet unknown owner.
    Despite a 15-minute stay initially planned, and with paperwork issues earlier in the day ensuring a delayed arrival time, the aircraft eventually spent over an hour on the ground – and with the skies clearer after sunset, departed directly back to BUD on the crew’s final sector of training that day.
