Notes:

Definitely not something you see everyday! A large British Airways B747, sitting on the taxi-way at a small Russian airport situated in the middle of nowhere being refueled by a Russian fuel truck! We were on BA025 from LHR to HKG when we had to divert to Irkutsk, Russia, due to the health of a certain passenger. However once the ill passenger was deplaned, we learnt that the pilots hours at expired and as a result we had to stay the night in Irkutsk. We departed again the next morning onwards to Hong Kong, albeit without the ill passenger.
