Significant: Note Pilot Error’s

1). Incident: Delta B712 at Montreal on Sep 7th 2017, wrong turn causes loss of separation
By Simon Hradecky, created Friday, Sep 22nd 2017 20:14Z, last updated Friday, Sep 22nd 2017 20:23Z
A Delta Airlines Boeing 717-200, registration N927AT performing flight DL-1870 from Atlanta,GA (USA) to Montreal,QC (Canada), was on a downwind at 3000 feet on approach to Montreal’s runway 24R.

A Skywest Canadair CRJ-200 on behalf of American Airlines, registration N955SW performing flight OO-3126/AA-3126 from Chicago O’Hare,IL (USA) to Montreal,QC (Canada), was on final approach to Montreal’s runway 24R maintaining 3000 feet.

Air Traffic Control instructed DL-1870 to turn onto heading 080 degrees, the crew however turned onto a heading of 180 degrees and into the path of the Canadair. ATC intervened and turned the Boeing left, the Delta crew confirmed having the Canadair in sight. The Canadair continued their approach fgor a safe landing, the Boeing positioned onto the approach again, too, and also landed safely.

The Canadian TSB reported the horizontal separation between the two aircraft both at 3000 feet reduced to 1.5nm where 5nm were required. END

2)Incident: Jazeera A320 at Kuwait on Aug 27th 2017, collision with cable of military captive balloon
By Simon Hradecky, created Monday, Aug 28th 2017 21:12Z, last updated Friday, Sep 22nd 2017 15:42Z
A Jazeera Airways Airbus A320-200, registration 9K-CAK performing flight J9-787 from Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) to Kuwait (Kuwait), was on approach to Kuwait City when ATC issued instruction to maintain 5000 feet and join a left hand holding pattern at waypoint IVETA (IAF, Pos. N29.3733 E47.7850) due to another arriving aircraft with a medical emergency receiving priority. While in the holding at about 16:14L (13:14Z) the right hand engine (CFM56) contacted the cable of a military captive balloon (mounting point coordinates N29.3908 E47.6704, 6nm west of IVETA) rising up to about 5000 feet AGL. The balloon deflated and slowly fell to ground. The crew did not observe any abnormal engine indications and continued for a normal landing on Kuwait’s runway 15R.

A postflight inspection revealed a sliced engine inlet and serious damage along the engine cowl, fan blades appeared to be intact. The aircraft was unable to continue its schedule and is still on the ground in Kuwait about 31.5 hours after landing.

Charts released by Kuwait’s AIP do not show any holding pattern at waypoint IVETA, which is the IAF for the RNAV procedure to join the ILS runway 15L or 15R. The area of the captive balloon 6nm west of IVETA is shown as a restricted zone from ground up to 15000 feet MSL.

On Sep 22nd 2017 Kuwait’s CAA reported the aircraft at 5000 feet collided with air force balloon. The occurrence was rated a serious incident and is being investigated Kuwait’s CAA. END

3).Incident: Emirates A388 at Moscow on Sep 10th 2017, go around from about 400 feet AGL 8nm before runway
By Simon Hradecky, created Monday, Sep 18th 2017 12:55Z, last updated Friday, Sep 22nd 2017 15:38Z
An Emirates Airbus A380-800, registration A6-EEZ performing flight EK-131 from Dubai (United Arab Emirates) to Moscow Domodedovo (Russia) with 420 passengers and 26 crew, was positioning for an approach to Domodedovo’s runway 14R about to intercept the localizer about 8nm before the runway threshold when the aircraft descended to about 400 feet AGL, initiated a go around following an EGPWS warning and climbed straight ahead to safe altitude while crossing through the localizer. The aircraft subsequently positioned for another approach to runway 14R, aligned with the extended runway center line but did not initiate the final descent and joined the missed approach procedure as result. The aircraft positioned again for an approach to runway 14R and landed without further incident on runway 14R about 35 minutes after the first go around (from 400 feet AGL).

Position and Altitude data transmitted by the aircraft’s transponder suggest the aircraft was tracking about 190 degrees magnetic when the aircraft initiated the go around at about 1000 feet MSL about 8nm before the runway threshold, which translates to about 400 feet AGL with the aerodrome elevation at 180 meters/592 feet MSL.

The airline told The Aviation Herald on Sep 18th 2017, that the occurrence is being investigated by United Arab Emirates’ Civil Aviation Authority GCAA, the airline apologizes that due to the investigation no further details can be provided.

The GCAA have already sent a first preliminary reply indicating the communication department is about to respond to the questions.

On Sep 19th 2017 the GCAA reported that the occurrence of the A380 descending below the glideslope on approach to runway 14R at Moscow Deomodedovo Airport was rated a serious incident and is being investigated by UAE’s Air Accident Investigation Sector (AAIS). There were no injuries and no damage to the aircraft.

On Sep 22nd 2017 the GCAA stated to other accident investigation bodies: “During the approach, the aircraft descended to 400 ft, approximately 7.5 Nm inbound on the runway while attempting to intercept the ILS for landing. The EGPWS alerted the pilots and the crew aborted the landing. A second approach was unsuccessful and aborted. The aircraft landed safely on the third approach.” The occurrence was rated a serious incident and is being investigated by the GCAA’s AAIS.

Russia’s Rosaviatsia (Civil Aviation Authority) have not yet replied to the inquiry by The Aviation Herald.

According to Russia’s news agency Interfax the aircraft was cleared to descend to 500 meters (editorial note: heights in meters QFE are given by ATC below transition altitude, above transition altitude altitudes in feet are provided) however descended too fast and below the assigned height.END

4).Incident: Canadian North DH8A near Pond Inlet on Aug 28th 2017, separation "self service"
By Simon Hradecky, created Wednesday, Sep 20th 2017 20:12Z, last updated Wednesday, Sep 20th 2017 20:12Z
A Canadian North de Havilland Dash 8-100, registration C-GRGI performing flight 5T-610 from Pond Inlet,NU to Igloolik,NU (Canada) with 12 people on board, was enroute at FL210 about 120nm southwest of Pond Inlet when the crew observed another aircraft at FL210 on a converging flight trajectory on their TCAS display, soon after the TCAS issued a Traffic Advisory. The crew established radio contact with the other aircraft, a Beech 200 by Keewatin Air performing medevac flight 208 from Arctic Bay,NU to Iqaluit,NU (Canada).

The Canadian TSB reported that the aircraft were operating in a controlled non-radar airspace. Soon after a Traffic Resolution Advisory occurred instructing the Dash to climb, the Dash climbed to FL220, while the Beech descended to FL200 without any TCAS advisory.

After being clear of conflict both aircraft returned to FL210 and continued their flights to destinations without further incidents. END

Is this an unusual height for a go-around?

was this incident above the city??

Incident Dniprovia E145 at Ivano-Frankovsk on Feb 7th 2017, overran runway on landing
I would hate to be in an overrun incident for these reasons.

  1. a lot of aiports don’t have much space after runways before they hit residential areas.
  2. that’s going to cause damage to the aircrafts wheels

I like seeing whats being going on in the world, keep it up

I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t wanna be flying at 400ft AGL when I’m still 8NM from the runway…

Whow, clearly the RJ’s are showing some age. I haven’t heard of this, pretty bad. 😳
