TUI's newest 737 MAX 8, G-TUMI is in the air just now (14:50 6th December). Nothing unusual or mysterious about that. Except, this aircraft which was delivered to TUI just one week ago, is reported to have been involved in "an incident" at Keflavik yesterday. No details of the incident to hand but what is significant is the destination of this aircraft. It is flying as TOM 9009 from Keflavik to St. Athan. And we all know what happens at St. Athan, don't we? They break written off aircraft!
Maybe this flight is going to St Athan for some other reason but the thought of an aircraft in service for exactly one week going to the breakers is incredible!
