Incident: Lufthansa A20N near Frankfurt on Jul 31st 2017, engine problem
Tuesday, Aug 1st 2017 18:52Z
A Lufthansa Airbus A320-200N, registration D-AINC performing flight LH-808 from Frankfurt/Main (Germany) to Stockholm (Sweden) with 170 passengers, was enroute at FL370 about 230nm northnortheast of Frankfurt when the crew decided to return to Frankfurt advising one of the engines (PW1127) was not delivering commanded thrust. The aircraft maintained FL370 for the way back and performed a safe landing on Frankfurt’s runway 07C about 50 minutes after turning around.

The airline reported one of the engines temporarily delivered less thrust than expected. Therefore the captain decided to return to Frankfurt as a precaution.

The occurrence aircraft is still on the ground about 22 hours after landing back.

Note: From comments this incident; appears some airlines have restricted AC w/engine PW1112 to FL300 or below NFI


It was not me, I swear

@AllegiantAir… Accident: Cavok AN74 at Sao Tome on Jul 29th 2017, rejected takeoff due to flock of birds results in runway overrun
Saturday, Jul 29th 2017 21:34Z
A Cavok Air Antonov AN-74TK-100, registration UR-CKC performing a flight from Sao Tome (Sao Tome and Principe) to an unknown destination with 6 crew, was accelerating for takeoff from Sao Tome’s runway 29 when the right hand engine (D36) ingested a number of birds prompting the crew to reject takeoff. The aircraft overran the end of the runway and went down a slope before coming to a stop on soft ground. Five crew members received injuries, the aircraft received substantial damage beyond repair.

Ukraine’s Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Yuri Lavrenyuk reported the flight was attempting takeoff when according to preliminary information the right hand engine received a bird strike, the takeoff was rejected, the aircraft went past the runway end. All crew members received injuries.

Sao Tome’s Civil Aviation Authority reported the aircraft rejected takeoff for some problem at about 11:00L (11:00Z) and suffered an accident. Five of the six people on board received injuries, one of them needed surgical treatment. The aircraft suffered substantial damage. An accident investigation commission has been formed.

The occurrence aircraft had operated to Sao Tome on Jul 27th 2017 from Stavanger (Norway) via Luxembourg (Luxembourg) and Ghardaia (Algeria) and was presumably departing for the return flight.

Accident: American A321 near Port of Spain on Aug 2nd 2017, “little bit of turbulence” injures a few passengers. IMG_0631Saturday, Aug 5th 2017 23:47Z
An American Airlines Airbus A321-200, registration N996AN performing flight AA-2713 from Miami,FL (USA) to Port of Spain (Trinidad and Tobago), was enroute at FL330 about to reach the top of descent into Port of Spain when the crew requested medical assistance meet the aircraft upon arrival advising “a little bit of turbulence” had injured a few passengers, about 10 people would need medical attention. The aircraft started the descent into Port of Spain about 6 minutes later and landed safely on Port of Spain’s runway 10 about 30 minutes later. 3 passengers were taken to hospitals, 2 of them discharged a short time later, one passenger remained in hospital. A number of passengers were treated at the airport for minor injuries.

The occurrence aircraft remained on the ground for about 18v hours and departed for the return flight the following afternoon around 15:16L with a delay of 8:16 hours.

Passengers reported the aircraft encountered turbulence about one hour prior to arrival in Port of Spain. The aircraft suffered a number of jolts throwing passengers against the cabin ceiling and back onto the floor, even passengers with seat belts closed were bumped against the overhead lockers.

Radar data suggest the aircraft encountered the turbulence at about about 20:25L (00:25Z Aug 3rd), when the aircraft encountered an altitude deviation up to FL331 about 100nm south of San Juan (Puerto Rico).


Yikes, American and their turbulence this week.

And this one. I almost forgot about this one.


It’s amazing that every time there are at least a few of those. What the hell?


Well, there the two are… 2 on the same day…

Saw Eastern Air Lines… Didn’t they go defunct in the 80s?

They came back from the dead.
