1.Incident: Sky Regional E175 at Toronto on Dec 2nd 2017, generator failure, RAT deployed
By Simon Hradecky, created Friday, Jan 19th 2018 20:58Z, last updated Friday, Jan 19th 2018 20:58Z
A Sky Regional Airlines Embraer ERJ-175, registration C-FRQW performing flight RS-7516 from Toronto,ON to Charlotteotown,PE (Canada) with 64 passengers and 4 crew, was climbing out of Toronto shortly after takeoff when the crew received an IDG 2 OFF BUS Caution indication. The crew worked the related checklists, shortly afterwards the Ram Air Turbine (RAT) deployed. The crew declared emergency and diverted to Ottawa for a safe landing.

Canada’s TSB reported the operator’s maintenance is investigating why the RAT deployed looking also into the MAU (Modular Avionics Unit). The manufacturer participates in that investigation.

  1. Accident: American A319 at Phoenix on Jan 17th 2018, wake turbulence blew Cessna 182 on departure over

    An American Airlines Airbus A319-100, registration N819AW performing flight AA-1709 from Phoenix,AZ to San Jose,CA (USA), departed Phoenix’s runway 07L and was climbing out of Phoenix.

A Cessna 182 departed runway 07L as the next aircraft. The FAA reported however: “AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT 1709, A319 ON DEPARTURE CAUSED WAKE TURBULENCE AND BLEW OVER C172, PHOENIX AZ”. There were no injuries.

Runway 07L needed to be closed because of the disabled Cessna on the runway.

  1. Accident: Fastjet E190 at Mwanza on Jan 17th 2018, person on runway killed by departing aircraft
    By Simon Hradecky, created Thursday, Jan 18th 2018 15:03Z, last updated Thursday, Jan 18th 2018 15:03Z
    A Fastjet Embraer ERJ-190, registration 5H-FJI performing flight FN-148 from Mwanza to Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) with 83 people on board, was accelerating for takeoff at about 21:05L (18:05Z) when the crew noticed a person in the middle of the active runway, attempted some limited evasive maneouver and continued takeoff. Climbing out of the airport the crew informed ATC, who confirmed a seriously injured person on the runway. After safe landing in Dar es Salaam the crew received information that the person on the runway in Mwanza had succumbed to the injuries. The aircraft did not receive any damage.

The airline confirmed the accident advising their passengers that an investigation has been opened into the accident, the aircraft remains unavailable due to the investigation forcing a number of flight cancellations on Jan 18th. Fastjet wrote: “Fastjet would like to extend its sincere condolences to the family and friends of the dead.”

Tanzania’s Airport Authority reported a male, unknown identity, has died when he hit the departing aircraft on the runway. All security procedures had been followed. However, the long-term lack of a fence due to building and aerodrome enhancements works might have contributed to the person getting onto the runway. A safety investigation is underway.


Just wondering, I skimmed through but didn’t see this one:

Just curios: is this just copied out of Aviation Herald?

Since the upload jujust didnt work, here again :

I hope you meet all this requirements, to post that. (There is no link to the spurce provided here) maybe a mod should take care of that, since it is a violation of the copyright

I would imagine it would be lovely to read these before going out flying! I´ll save these for when i fly in march. :))

Just read that, there is no us law, because the website is hosted under Austrian law.

But i’ll just send Simon (owner of the website) the link, and he’ll do whatever he thinks is right

Didn’t know you were a lawyer.
Then please explain this.
We assume this forum is a broadcast. The definition of the word “Broadcast” is: “A system to broadcast and relay information to users of that certain broadcasting company” (In this case Discourse/FDS)

Now, I direct you to §5 Article 42 of the Austrian Copyright law:
“If a work that has been broadcasted on a commercially available medium is expected to be read and shared, are distributed while the sharer in fact has not received payment nor shall receive payment” bla bla bla, idk not a lawyer

either way, stop being THAt person that gets an otherwise pretty enjoyable post stopped and shut down


MaxSez: @emil my friend, thank you you the extract. Let’s just end this here,

@5pe3dy, keep it to PM, you’ve recieved my final comment in my last PM. Another malicious off topic comment here on this matter will be Flag’ed.

“Members, no more copywrite comments, pls stay on Topic. Thank you”


Nup, it’s still in the list:

Do you have any more info on this incident @Maxmustang?

@Captain_Ed… MaxSez. Looked in Aviation Safety Net Archive. These incidents are not listed. In probability there still under investigation. Off times Crash/Incidant Investigations get hung up, Principle party conflict and legalizes can draw these things out for years. Regards
