Incident: Wizz A320 at Liverpool on Sep 7th 2017, smartphone with withdrawal symptoms

A Wizzair Airbus A320-200, registration HA-LYN performing flight W6-1011 from Katowice (Poland) to Liverpool,EN (UK), was on final approach to Liverpool’s runway 27 when the crew reported a smartphone in the cabin had begun smoking. Emergency services responded, while cabin crew took care of the phone, secured it and moved it into the back of the cabin and the flight crew landed the aircraft safely and taxied the aircraft to the gate. Passengers disembarked normally at the stand.
The airport reported their emergency services were alerted to a phone emitting smoke in the cabin, the phone had been moved to the back of the cabin by the time of landing already. Emergency services did not need to intervene and were on standby as a precaution.
The airline reported a passenger’s phone began to emit smoke, the crew followed standard operating procedures to ensure safe operation of the flight and alerted fire fighters. There were no injuries and no damage to the aircraft.
The aircraft departed for the return flight on schedule.
Incident: Jazz CRJ2 near Moncton on Sep 4th 2017, climbed above cleared level causing loss of separation

A Jazz Canadair CRJ-200, registration C-FZJA performing flight QK-8903 from Moncton,NB to Montreal,QC (Canada), was cleared to climb to FL320 out of Moncton, however, climbed through FL320 about 125nm west of Moncton creating a loss of separation with a military aircraft. ATC turned the military aircraft, which was flying about 1nm west of the CRJ, by 20 degrees and queried the CRJ crew, who confirmed to have been cleared to FL320 and descended their aircraft from FL328 to FL320. Both aircraft continued to their destinations for safe landings.
- Accident: Lion B739 and Wings AT72 at Medan on Aug 3rd 2017, collision on runway
By Simon Hradecky, created Thursday, Aug 10th 2017 15:09Z, last updated Tuesday, Sep 5th 2017 15:46Z
A Lion Air Boeing 737-900, registration PK-LJZ performing flight JT-197 from Banda Aceh to Medan Kuala Namu (Indonesia) with 144 people on board, landed on Kuala Namu International Airport’s runway 23 at about 10:55L (03:55Z).
A Wings Air Avions de Transport Regional ATR-72-212A, registration PK-WFF performing flight IW-1252 from Medan Kuala Namu to Meulaboh (Indonesia) with 66 people on board, was lining up for departure from Kuala Namu’s runway 23 from taxiway D at about 10:55L (03:55Z).
On Aug 3rd 2017 the airport as well as Lion Air had reported, that the collision had occurred on a taxiway well off the runway (rendering the occurrence a ground incident outside the coverage of The Aviation Herald). The airport further reported it had been a normal landing, the airport was not affected, there had been no closure with normal operation continuing.
However, on Aug 10th 2017 Indonesia’s NTSC reported the Boeing 737-900 during the landing roll on runway 23 collided with the ATR-72 lining up runway 23 from taxiway D resulting in substantial damage. The NTSC rated the occurrence an accident and opened an investigation.
On Sep 5th 2017 the NTSC released their preliminary report reporting IW-1252 reported ready for departure from runway 23 intersection taxiway D.
The Lion Boeing received landing clearance on runway 23.
About one minute later IW-1252 was instructed to hold short of runway 23 at taxiway D, about another minute later the crew reported holding short of runway 23. Tower queried whether they were able to an immediate departure, repeated the query after receiving no reply and the crew confirmed they were able for an immediate departure.
Tower thus instructed IW-1252: "IW1252 behind traffic Lion on short final landed passing line up behind runway 23 from intersection D additional clearance after departure direct Meulaboh."
The crew read back: “departure direct to Meulaboh IW1252”, tower acknowledged: “Namu Tower”. IW-1252 continued to line up runway 23.
About 35 seconds after that last transmission JT-197 touched down and a few seconds later collided with the ATR. JT-197 reported there was another aircraft on the runway.
The NTSC reported there were no injuries, however, both aircraft sustained substantial damage.
The tower supervisor took over communication and instructed the next arrival to go around. JT-197 was instructed to vacate the runway via taxiway G. The controller subsequently cleared IW-1252 for takeoff, the crew declined “negative”. The crew subsequently requested to return to the apron.
About 8 minutes after the collision JT-197 advised tower of the possibility of debris on the runway. The crew of another aircraft waiting for departure reported seeing debris on the runway. Tower issued a landing clearance to the aircraft that had gone around earlier. JT-197 advised again there was possibly debris on the runway, tower responded that maintenance had been informed. The aircraft on final landed and after landing reported foreign objects on the runway.
Only then the runway was closed for about 25 minutes until the debris had been cleared off the runway.
The NTSC reported the ATR was still on ground frequency when the landing clearance to JT-197 was issued. The NTSC reported further that the conditional taxi clearance to line up behind the landing traffic was issued without verifying the crew was able to see the landing traffic.
The NTSC released one immediate safety recommendation to AirNav Indonesia (ATC Service Provider) and another one to Wings Abadi. In addition, AirNav Indonesia and Wings Abadi already took safety action.
