Incident: KLM B772 and KLM B738 at Amsterdam on Jun 22nd 2017, conflicting takeoff clearances
By Simon Hradecky, created Thursday, Jun 22nd 2017 22:55Z, last updated Thursday, Jun 22nd 2017 22:55Z
A KLM Boeing 737-800, registration PH-HSD performing flight KL-1385 from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Kiev (Ukraine), had been cleared for takeoff from runway 18L and was accelerating for takeoff.

A KLM Boeing 777-200, registration PH-BQI performing flight KL-31 from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Toronto,ON (Canada), had been instructed to line up runway 24 and wait by the outgoing tower controller.

A controller change took place.

Another aircraft reported ready for departure from runway 18L and was instructed to line up runway 18L and wait by the incoming tower controller.

Immediately after this instruction the incoming controller cleared KL-31 for takeoff, the crew of KL-1385 immediately reported they were still departing conflicting with KL-31’s jet blast, the controller immediately cancelled takeoff clearance for KL-31 and instructed them to hold position, the aircraft had not yet moved.

KL-31 departed about 2 minutes later, both aircraft reached their destinations without further incidents.


Ooh no. One of my favourite planes

I just saw a short clip from inside the cabin from this incident. It literally shakes like a washing machine standing on uneven ground.

What can cause such vibrations? Seems really odd.


The Airbus A333 with the flap issue circled over my town for 3 and a half hours burning off fuel before returning to KCLT.

This is where i found it:


MaxSez: Wow! Experience a similar incident years ago. Sheared Bolt on an engine mount pylon on a C-123 (Provider) out of a rough dirt strip in SEA. I had to wash up after recovery!

Accident: China Eastern A332 near Tyumen on Jun 18th 2017, severe turbulence causes loss of 4000 feet and injures 26

A China Eastern Airbus A330-200, registration B-5926 performing flight MU-774 (Jun 17th) from Paris Charles de Gaulle (France) to Kunming (China), was enroute at FL390 about 260nm northeast of Tyumen (Russia) the aircraft encountered severe turbulence including two large jolts causing the aircraft to experience multiple rapid descends and climbs (in excess of 5000 fpm) reaching a minimum of FL349 as well as injuries to 26 people on board. The aircraft continued to Kunming for a safe landing about 5:45 hours later. Four passengers were taken to hospital with serious injuries (fractures and head injuries), 22 passeners with minor injuries.

Passengers reported that many passengers were not buckled in about 6 hours prior to landing in Kunming when turbulence lasting for about 10 minutes set in and resulted in two very large jolts having everyone not being buckled in hitting the cabin ceiling and being thrown back onto the seats. Between the large jolts there were a number of other lesser jolts.

The airport reported 4 passengers received serious injuries including fractures and head injuries, 22 received minor injuries (mainly bruises), 2 more passengers were examined.

The airline reported without identifying when and where the tubulence took place, that the fasten seat belt signs were illuminated however not everyone complied with the instruction. A number of passengers needed to be taken to hospitals.

Radar data show the aircraft was enroute at FL390 about 260nm northeast of Tyumen at 19:05Z at 470 knots over ground, a minute later the aircraft the aircraft descends through FL376 at 490 knots over ground, slows to 364 knots over ground climbing through FL385 at 4000+ fpm, another minute later at 09:08Z is at FL349 at 475 knots over ground, climbs through FL360 at 5000+fpm a minute later, then stabilizes and climbs back to FL390 at about 480-490 knots over ground and climb rates less than 1000 fpm levelling off at FL390 again about 9 minutes after the aircraft departed FL390.


Thanks for all of that information!

I remember seeing this on FR24 a few nights ago. Good to finally know what the issue was.

@Nathan. MaxSends FYI:

Incident: Delta B764 near Boston on Jun 22nd 2017, problem with minimum/maximum speed indications

A Delta Airlines Boeing 767-400, registration N834MH performing flight DL-174 from Atlanta,GA (USA) to Milan Malpensa (Italy), was enroute at FL330 about 190nm southwest of Boston,MA, almost over New York City, when the crew descended the aircraft to FL250 and then FL230 due to problems with the maximum and minimum operating speed indications. The crew decided to divert to Boston, advised ATC it would be a normal landing and landed the aircraft safely on Boston’s runway 33L about 45 minutes after leaving FL330.

The aircraft remained on the ground for about 4:40 hours, then continued the journey and reached Milan with a delay of 5 hours.

A passenger reported the captain announced they had faulty minimum/maximum speed indicators. After landing the captain indicated that the thrust reversers had not stowed after landing, maintenance needed to fix the problem.


I didn’t know that AirAsia X has massaging seats, now I know who I should fly with to a destination in Asia.

On serious tone, the vibration look really bad. Maybe a component in the engine is out of alignment causing imbalance.
