The 737-200 is StilL in service?

Why does this crash appear on that list?
It happened four years ago and nothing else about it has been said recently.

@Blizzard. MaxSez: As requested… This type Incidant does not warrant an investigation. Cracked windscreens are routine occurrences. The write up below is standard practice. Internal investigation reports are performed by the carrier and are not public record.

Thanks a lot for that!

Oh, Jetstar up to no good? They’ve had a bunch of rowdy passengers onboard lately, as found in the news.

^ This one was sad. Hopefully the cause will be determined soon.

Could I have some more info on this please Max, if you wouldn’t mind?

Glad you are back up and doing them!

Max, I was only requesting further info on the last accident I quoted :)
I’ll have a little look myself

A Qantas Boeing 737-800, registration ZK-ZQD performing flight QF-144 from Auckland (New Zealand) to Sydney,NS (Australia), was in the initial climb out of Auckland’s runway 23L when a forward galley oven began emitting smoke prompting the crew to stop the climb at 3000 feet and return to Auckland for a safe landing on runway 23L about 15 minutes after departure.
The airline reported a fault with one of the ovens in the forward galley.
The aircraft remained on the ground for about 2:15 hours, then departed again and reached Sydney with a delay of 2:15 hours.

Sounds like quite an unusual incident

Incident: UPS B748 at Anchorage on May 21st 2018, overran runway on takeoff
By Simon Hradecky, created Tuesday, May 22nd 2018 20:15Z, last updated Tuesday, May 22nd 2018 20:16Z
A UPS Boeing 747-800, registration N605UP performing freight flight 5X-63 from Anchorage,AK to Louisville,KY (USA), departed Anchorage’s runway 25R and was climbing out, when upon contacting departure the crew advised they needed to return to Anchorage, two tyres were showing 0 pressure and obviously had lost pressure on deparure. The aircraft stopped the climb at 8500 feet, dumped fuel for about 45 minutes, performed a low approach to runway 15 to have the gear checked from the ground, the observers didn’t see anything wrong, emergency services took their stand by positions, and the aircraft positioned for a landing on runway 07R about 90 minutes after departure. Emergency services reported significant rubber on the runway, the runway was closed, too, tower reported one tyre was emitting smoke, no smoke was seen anymore when the aircraft came to a stop. Emergency services reported two tyres on the left main gear were completely missing. The Boeing 747-800 shut the engines down, UPS maintenance took care of the aircraft which was subsequently towed to the apron.

A runway inspection initiated after the crew reported two tyres showed zero pressure revealed damage to the runway end lights, the runway inspection closed the runway. A line of aircraft waiting for departure taxied to runway 15 via runway 25R and later departed from runway 15.

The FAA reported the Boeing 747-800 broke the runway end lights, dumped fuel and returned, upon landing blew a tyre and was towed. The aircraft sustained no damage, the occurrence was rated an incident.

Well this Boeing 737-200 is active:
This is not the one that crashed.

Yes, still used mainly by charter/contracter airlines at this point in time and usually outside europe and north america. Commercial jets can continue to be used as long as they can safely pressurise the cabin (or perform a cycle)
