Accident: Aeroflot A320 at Moscow on Aug 15th 2016, ground worker loses leg during tow
An Aeroflot Airbus A320-200, registration VP-BWD, was being towed at Moscow Sheremetyevo (Russia) in rain, when the tow stopped for a brief moment. A ground worker assisting the tow took cover from the rain near the left main gear. When the tow began to move again the left main gear caused serious injuries to the worker.

Russia’s Rosaviatsia (Civil Aviation Authority) reported the tow supervisor neither controlled the movement of the tow nor did he control the position of the workers assisting the tow, nor did any of the towing crew. One of the workers hid from the rain near the left main gear, upon continuation of movement the left main wheels caused so serious injuries to the worker that his right leg needed to be amputated.

Incident: Algerie AT72 at Algiers and Setif on Jul 26th 2017, flight crew permits child to control aircraft
By Simon Hradecky, created Saturday, Jul 29th 2017 01:05Z, last updated Saturday, Jul 29th 2017 01:05Z
An Air Algerie Avions de Transport Regional ATR-72-212A, registration 7T-VUT performing flight AH-6212 from Algiers to Setif (Algeria), was preparing for departure from Algiers when the flight crew invited a child, an orphan, into the cockpit, the child took the captain’s seat. The crew videotaped the sequence, including a sequence in flight when the child, seated in the left hand seat, was manipulating the flight controls under supervision of first officer in the right hand seat and the captain on the observer’s seat. The aircraft continued for a safe landing in Setif.

The videotape made it on Algerian’s TV stations.

On Jul 28th 2017 Algeria’s Directorate of Civil Aviation and Meteorology (DACM) confirmed the occurrence and reported the flight crew was grounded.

Air Algerie reported the captain was arrested for permitting a child into the cockpit and permitting the child to control the aircraft in flight.

Report: India A319 at Mumbai on Apr 12th 2013, landed without clearance and despite go-around instruction

An Air India Airbus A319-100, registration VT–SCL performing flight AI-944 from Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) to Mumbai (India) with 81 passengers and 7 crew, was on approach to Mumbai’s runway 27 when after being handed off to tower the crew did not report on tower frequency. There were two ground vehicles on the runway performing a runway inspection after a previous departure had reported a possible bird strike. one of the vehicle drivers noticed the aircraft on final approach and instructed the other vehicle driver to vacate the runway, both cars sped off the runway. Tower instructed the aircraft to go around, the aircraft however continued the approach and landed, after both cars had vacated the runway, safely on runway 27.

India’s DGCA released their final report into the serious incident concluding the probable causes were:

  • After being handed over to tower, the flight crew did not communicate with the ATC on any of the frequencies and continued to land whereas it was instructed to go around by the tower due ongoing runway inspection.

  • Fatigue on the part of flight crew contributed to the error.

Incident: India A320 at Kolkata and Nagpur on Jul 22nd 2017, “inexplicable” performance degradation

An Air India Airbus A320-200, registration VT-EXE performing flight AI-676 from Kolkata to Mumbai (India), was climbing out of Kolkata, however achieved an unuusally poor climb rate, was not able to accelerate to normal cruise speeds and levelled off at FL200 after a continous climb for about 30 minutes. The aircraft subsequently attempted to continue the climb but could not climb above FL240. The crew continued the flight at FL240 and about 310knots over ground for another about 45 minutes then needed to divert to Nagpur (India) due to running low on fuel. While on final approach to Nagpur, when the crew was about to lower the gear, the crew discovered the landing gear had remained extended all the flight. The aircraft landed safely in Nagpur, about 530nm west of Kolkata, about 2.5 hours after departure from Kolkata.

The aircraft remained on the ground in Nagpur for about 2 hours, then departed again, achieved normal climb performance, climbed to cruise level FL360 and landed safely in Mumbai with a delay of 3:45 hours.

On Jul 25th 2017 the airline reported both pilots were de-rostered due to not retracting the landing gear after departure from Kolkata and continuing to fly without detecting that the landing gear was still extended despite the unusually poor performance. The occurrence is being investigated by the airline.

Max, any details on a flight that happened approximately 9 hours ago? Norwegian took off at KPVD enroute to Dublin, then made a U turn, descended to 10000 and returned to PVD.

@Ksisky. MazSez: Routine occurrence. Normally classified an incident.
This type report normally delayed.


This sounds like TS1. I’m always surprised at the amount of accidents/incidents that can happen in a week! Keep up the good work Max.


Oh god! That is so horrible
