@Lx_D… MaxSez: This is an old incident. Dated unusual incidents are routinely added to the weekly as an attention getter. Jet Engine ingestion/rejection s not as rare as one may think. When I was the ramp lead for AmWest at DCA years ago a backing/turning A-320 blow me across the ramp while wing walking. The Ramp & a Carrier Deck are some of the most dangerous places in the world for the inattentive:

Incident: On Dec 17th 2015 India’s UPWA (Unemployed Pilot Welfare Association) reported based on initial interviews with their collegues, that the aircraft was being pushed back from bay 28L at Mumbai Airport following a cross bleed engine start, when after the push back got finished the technician/engineer instructed a helper to remove the tow bar with the engineer (56) facing his tow truck and having the engines in his back, his headset was on. In the meantime the crew got taxi clearance, the captain queried with the first officer whether the aircraft was clear, the first officer affirmed, and the aircraft started to move forward with both engines operating. The engineer remained unaware of the aircraft starting to move and was sucked into the right hand engine and killed, the helper, who just spotted the aircraft’s movement in time, instantly sat down and was saved that way. The UPWA stated following crucial points: 1) No chocks were applied after push back had stopped, 2) no clearance signals had been issued releasing the aircraft for taxi, 3) lack of proper coordination between the two pilots and ground. The UPWA stressed: “Human Factors playing important role to have patience, avoid hurrying and follow SOPs.”(AvHerald)

A lot happens, a lot goes unnoticed. A lot of this will happen and the passengers will never know. Most of these incidents are very small, with little consequence but yes, every so often someone unfortunately get’s sucked into a jet engine or a plane hits some trees.

The adult in me doesn’t even want to know, but the kid in me has to ask…what? How did we hit a toilet with an airplane? (As I laugh vigorously to myself!) 😂

Interesting, it’s like it’s a mystery

@Chris_Ridgell… MaxSez: missed reading this one when I reviewed the week. No the airplane did not run over a or hit a Toilet. This publication used common aviation safety reporting terminology. “Strike” means damaged beyond repair, like a crash with casualties or damaged unrepairable during a sortie like a loss of systems.
In this case. The onboard Lav’s where stopped up. Trasavia Air Line has a terrible maintenance problem. It’s a 3 world low cost. Here’s the full report:

Incident: Transavia B738 near Cologne on May 28th 2017, toilet strike
By Simon Hradecky, created Sunday, May 28th 2017 20:53Z, last updated Sunday, May 28th 2017 20:53Z
A Transavia Boeing 737-800, registration PH-HZN performing flight HV-5807 from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Thessaloniki (Greece), was enroute at FL370 about 40nm east of Cologne (Germany) when the crew decided to return to Amsterdam reporting that not a single toilet was working. The aircraft turned around and landed safely in Amsterdam about 45 minutes later.

A replacement Boeing 737-800 registration PH-HSJ reached Thessaloniki with a delay of 6 hours.

The occurrence aircraft remained on the ground for about 7 hours before resuming service.

@LouDon16… Still no record of that flight number/airline except for the incident report provided which was a few months ago from my limited sources. Have no access to U.K. Gov’t reporting agency’s. Only press/Web for U.K. Available to me stateside. Suggest you check with the airline Corporate public affairs office
The incident report should be in the public domaine. You’ll need a good reason for such a request, personal interest normally will garner a no comment.
Regards

I am really surprised nothing has come up about this. The guy I contacted at ALC said he couldn’t get any other information. Usually the AvHerald would cover something like that.

Spot on with the response as usual Max. Well done Sir. The question I posed was meant as rhetoric, but thank you for the explanation. I had naturally assumed it was something to do with the onboard facilities. I just wanted to make a joke at the expense of the lighter side of what could have been. I mean seriously, how funny would that have been? ;)

Thank you again for the informative post. If we looked at the statistics of how many aircraft are in service versus how many have reported issues in a given timeframe, we’ll see that these things probably don’t happen very often. But then again, it does make you wonder how many issues don’t get reported. Food for thought I guess.
