Electrical Failure on landing into LGA. Nobody was hurt, luckily this is not common on the 717.


What now?

I'm sure it's happened a few times, to be honest.

Why the emergency evacuation on the runway for an electric failure? Did they suspect a possible fire?

They have only had one other TEF on the 717 and that was on N945AT. Nothing to worry about, at least this aircraft has hydraulic backups, so a pilot could land without his screens.

Didn't a TWA plane have a similar problem?

Not that I know of, I know they had a l.g. failure at one time. Actually, I would be more concerned with the 717 engine failures. There seems to be quite a few.  Sad

I know there is a picture in the database showing a TWA 717 rolling out in STL with hydraulic problems. Gear doors and the such are all hanging down. Apparently they still have some bugs to work out  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I have actually flown on N919AT. This was formerly known as N2417F which had the gear failure. It was the aircraft that landed w/o the nose gear extended. If I had not known about that incident previously, I would never have known that this had ever happened. The aircraft performed splendidly.

The 717 is a beautiful bird, and it will take about another year to get all of the bugs worked out. As they all say, we learn from mistakes. DC9 was a troublesome bird when she first came out, and now look. She is retiring after a 30 some year old career. Almost 40. Just give the 717 some time. She'll prevail. Give her a chance.

That is if Boeing are still supporting it in a year  Big grin

"717? What's that? You mean a KC-135 right? We didn't make a commercial 717...you must be thinking of someone else!"

I hope that they don't scrap the 717-200 and make it the 737-600 and scrap the whole idea of 717-300 and say go for 73G/738
