Author: Kayla Nilson  |  Category: emergency landing

A Southwest aircraft made an emergency landing at Philadelphia’s airport a piece of shrapnel flew off of the left engine covering, shattering a window, and killing one passenger. Oxygen masks dropped down from the ceiling and passengers reported hearing “loud bangs” and “rattling” as the plane quickly began to descend.

The pilot was able to regain control of the jet and land safely. Upon arrival, emergency vehicles were waiting on the tarmac and seven people with minor injuries were treated. A fuel leak in one of the engines caused a small fire that firefighters were able to control quickly.

After landing, the FAA stated that the crew reported damage to one of the engines, the fuselage, and at least one window.

Inspection Failures Lead to Smoke on Jet Airways Flight

Author: Kayla Nilson  |  Category: emergency landing, Fumes

A Jet Airways plane departing from Bengaluru had began its ascent when a master caution warning went off at 4,500 feet. The flight crew inspected the issue, and all systems seemed to be running properly, and they continued on toward their destination.

The aircraft had then reached 6,000 feet, when one of the crew members reported smoke inside of the passenger cabin. Wet tissues were distributed to the passengers and the protective breathing system had to be implemented. The plane was forced to make an emergency landing where three passengers sustained minor injuries during the evacuation.

Upon further investigation, it has come to light that while regular inspections of the plane occurred, checks of the power turbine blades were being missed. This has been listed as the probably cause of the smoke. The Director General of Civil Aviation has classified this as a “serious incident”.

Author: admin  |  Category: emergency landing

.

Newly discovered evidence on Lima Bolivia flight LMI-2933 crash suggests the pilot was aware fuel levels in the plane were dangerously low.

Cockpit recordings show Miguel Quiroga, pilot of the plane, requested an emergency landing due to fuel problems. Landing priority, however, was given to another nearby plane which was also experiencing mechanical problems. The plane circled for seven minutes waiting to land and eventually crashed.

This theory implies had the plane landed sooner, the accident may have been prevented.

.

Fedex Express Flight FX-910, delivering cargo from Memphis to Fort Lauderdale, had its main landing gear collapse during landing, which resulted in a fire on the plane’s left engine.

When the plane made contact with the runway, the left main gear collapsed. Consequently the plane’s left wing and its engine scraped along the tarmac, causing the fire, and dragged along the runway until the plane came to a stop.

A blazing fire ensued. Two flight crew members were on board at the time and both escaped through the right cockpit window. The NTSB has opened an investigation.
