1). Incident: American B38M near Port of Spain on May 29th 2018, “we think somebody is stuck in our cargo hold”
By Simon Hradecky, created Friday, Jun 1st 2018 22:59Z, last updated Friday, Jun 1st 2018 22:59Z
An American Airlines Boeing 737-800MAX, registration N308RD performing flight AA-2282 from Port of Spain (Trinidad and Tobago) to Miami,FL (USA), was climbing through FL160 out of Port of Spain when the crew reported they thought somebody was stuck in their cargo hold, they heard noise from the cargo hold believed to be screaming. The aircraft returned to Port of Spain for a safe landing about 35 minutes after departure.
Nobody was found in the cargo holds. The aircraft remained on the ground for about 2.5 hours, then departed again and reached Miami with a delay of 2.5 hours.
The airline confirmed the aircraft returned due to some unusual noise. However, the noise appeared to have been caused by some mechanical problem rather than a hapless stowaway.
Incident: United B739 at Chicago on May 29th 2018, flaps/slats issue

A United Boeing 737-900, registration N37470 performing flight UA-2192 from Tampa,FL to Chicago O’Hare,IL (USA) with 191 people on board, was on final approach to O’Hare’s runway 10R descending through abou 1500 feet MSL when the crew initiated a go around reporting a flaps issue. The crew subsequently requested a long downwind to work the checklists, however, after working the checklists needed to declare emergency reporting the slats would not extend and requested runway 10C. ATC re-assigned runway 10R to a number of aircraft on approach to runway 10C and vectors UA-2191 for an approach to runway 10C. When ATC instructed the aircraft to reduce speed to 170 KIAS, the crew responded “We will once we get our flaps out”, ATC accepted. The aircraft landed safely on runway 10C at a higher than normal speed (about 178 knots over ground).
Incident: Jayawijaya B732 at Wamena on May 25th 2018, dropped thrust reverser and veered off runway on landing
By Simon Hradecky, created Friday, May 25th 2018 16:39Z, last updated Wednesday, May 30th 2018 23:44Z
A Jayawijaya Dirgantara Boeing 737-200 freighter, registration PK-JRM performing a freight flight from Jayapura to Wamena (Indonesia) with a cargo of food including rice, cement and other cargo weighing 12,557 kg, landed on Wamena’s runway 15 at 14:08L (04:08Z) but dropped the right hand thrust reverser (engine JT8D) in the touch down zone. The aircraft subsequently veered off the runway to the left, departed the left hand runway edge about 800 meters down the runway and came to a stop with all gear on soft ground about 800 meters further down the runway, about 50 meters off the edge of the runway. No injuries are being reported, the damage to the aircraft is being assessed.
Local authorities reported sufficient runway length remained available for Hercules aircraft and some small passenger aircraft caught at the outposts to operate on the runway. The aircraft is anticipated to be cleared off the runway later the day.
4.Incident: Jetstar A320 at Sydney on May 9th 2018, flap and gear overspeed on go around
By Simon Hradecky, created Friday, May 25th 2018 15:58Z, last updated Friday, May 25th 2018 15:58Z
A Jetstar Airbus A320-200, registration VH-VQL performing flight JQ-608 from Avalon,VI to Sydney,NS (Australia), was on final approach to Sydney’s runway 34L with the first officer being pilot flying, when the crew elected to go around at about 1200 feet MSL due to the approach not being stabilized. During the go around the maximum speeds for flaps and moving gear were exceeded due to incorrect trim. The captain assumed control of the aircraft, completed the go around and landed the aircraft safely about 13 minutes later.
The ATSB rated the occurrence an incident and opened an investigation.
- Incident: JAL B763 at Kumamoto on May 24th 2018, raining engine

A JAL Japan Airlines Boeing 767-300, registration JA8980 performing flight JL-632 from Kumamoto to Tokyo Haneda (Japan) with 209 passengers and 8 crew, was climbing through about 6000 feet out of Kumamoto’s runway 25 when the crew observed vibrations from the left hand engine (CF6) as well as increasing exhaust gas temperatures. The crew reduced the engine to idle thrust, stopped the climb and returned to Kumamoto for a safe landing on runway 25 about 25 minutes after departure.
A ground witness, director of a local hospital, reported they heard noise, glass of a car parked outside the hospital as well as a window of the hospital shattered when metallic pieces fell onto the ground. None of the 10 patients affected by the broken window was injured.
Japan’s Ministry of Transport reported metallic pieces, size up to 5cm by 5cm (2 inches by 2 inches) of the left hand engine, parts of turbine, were found about 7km southwest of the aerodrome and 9 other locations below the flight path of the aircraft. A post flight examination revealed the engine debris had also scratched the horizontal stabilizer. The occurrence was rated a serious incident and will be investigated by the JTSB.
The airline reported the passengers were rebooked onto the next flights.
