Topic: What Is Wrong With SK7813?

Saw on http://www.flygradar.nu/flygradar.php?&language=undefined that SK7813 was returning to ARN for 15 minutes ago, but never landed there. Still flying over the Baltic sea. Anyone knows what is wrong?

You can see the a/c here: http://www.flygradar.nu/flygradar.php?&language=undefined (click on the a/c that flies over the Baltic sea).

Fuel dump so it doesn't come in overweight?

Cant the 738 dump fuel? It has been flying over the Baltic sea for over an hour now. Was supposed to fly to Egypt, so probably a lot of fuel on board.

It is still at 10,000 feet doing a large holding pattern..

As far as I know, the B738 has not a jettison fueldump system.
So probably it will return, but to come at the max landing weight, it will have to reduce weight by burning the fuel. That's probably done now, by circling over the sea.

SAS website shows SK 7813 Stockholm - RMF Departed 07:09

One would have thought it would have burnt of enough fuel at that level now to land

Exactly my thought! Could it be anything else?

and also, departure time from ARN is set at 1100 UTC or 1200 Local time.
This might be a replacement flight already...

Yes, looking at ARN's website it shows SK7813A for Marsa Alam at 12:00 local time.

Looks like it landed OK. No go-arounds on the radar from the following arrivals.

It's a charter flight. SK7xxx means it's a charter

Quoting B747forever (Reply 2):
Can't the 738 dump fuel?

As far as I know, no 737s, from the -100 to the -900, can dump fuel. I think the same applies for many other short-medium range types including the DC-9, MD-80, 717, 757 and A320 family. If necessary, they just land overweight.
