Air Berlin Pilots Investigated After Performing Risky Farewell Maneuver

BERLIN — The pilots of an Air Berlin flight that performed a fly-past during the insolvent carrier’s last long-haul flight to its hub in Dusseldorf have been suspended, the airline said on Wednesday.

When coming into land from Miami on Monday morning, the A330 jet flew low across the runway, then pulled up and banked sharply to the left before landing on its second approach.


An airplane of the German airline ‘Air Berlin’ is prepared to lift off at the Tegel airport in Berlin on Oct. 12, 2017.
