    Yelling bullshit don't make it right .
    They probably WERE short of fuel by the time they were near Vienna.
    "Probably" ? What a very convincing argument .
    They were NOT ALLOWED to enter Portuguese air space - or French, Spanish, or ITALIAN air space either.
    Did I say otherwise ?
    The plane did a HARD 180 over western Austria - something that is NEVER done without extreme circumstances being involved - and headed back the way it had come.
    "NEVER" ? You don't know what the you are talking about .  You are just making up bullshit .
    Now calculate VIENNA, AUSTRIA to Gran Canaria, please.
    I already did that .
    Vienna to Canary Islands - 1200ish miles
    Gran Canaria (Spanish pronunciation: [ɡɾaŋ kaˈna.ɾja]; originally meaning 'Great [Island] of Dogs') is the second most populous island of the Canary Islands, a Spanish archipelago, with a population of 838,397 which constitutes approximately 40% of the population of the archipelago. Located in the Atlantic Ocean about 150 kilometers (~93 miles) off the northwestern coast of Africa and about 1350 km (~838 miles) from Europe.[1]
    Your asking me to do what I have already done shows that you are out of the loop and that's no ones fault but your own , you are abusive , wrong and out of touch .


    Moscow - "LISBON, PORTUGAL" = 2425.26 miles .
    Moscow - Vienna = 1037.24 miles

    So if they fueled in Moscow for the trip to Lisbon Portugal
    they had on board fuel to fly at least 2500ish miles , they had flown just over 1000ish miles . They had on board fuel to fly another 1500ish miles .

    That will give you a more accurate idea of that little plane's fuel capacity.

    And maybe then you'll have some idea what you are jabbering about.

    The same results when substituting "LISBON, PORTUGAL" for Canary Islands .
    You argument falls apart hopelessly . The results show that you have no clue .

    The standard you walk past is the standard you accept. David Morrison
