Man, those C8 aircraft are so common at MDW, I wonder why they don't get more emergencies in the first place! Just kidding, I bet the mechanics over there are great!

Brian were you including the one that was declared just a month ago on the TOL - MDW flight that had low oil pressure and diverted to SBN? If not...that's a third one ;o) Does anyone know what A/C this was?

As I understand it, the only out-and-out failure was on a MDW-SBN flight in 2001. The other (mentioned) incidents were precautionary (if required) shutdowns due to mechanical abnormalities.

C8 Mx is awesome. Safety truly comes first, regardless of cost. The Saabs are built like tanks if you compare the unrelentingly hard use they see and relatively rare failures.

I guess today's incident explains the nearly 40 minute taxi time for our morning arrival from MDW.

Above all, I'm glad everyone is safe and the aircraft escaped relatively unscathed -- thus preserving ATA's excellent 30 year safety record.

I heard the radio call about the one with low oil pressure but i didn't know an emergency was declaired. The other one I was refering to was the Prop Actuator failure on a flight from MDW - GRR while on final approach. I didn't know that any other emergency's were declaired only precautionary diversions.

That's pretty neat they have a good safety record. Once I saw one of them working on a plane outside and wondered about their safety record.

I remember hearing something once about a C8 flight that lost its pax door over Lake Michigan but ended up landing safely. This was back when they were operating J31's and probably before any of you guys started working there. Haven't been able to verify if the incident was true or not.

Oh the door! That was the luggage compartment door where the carry-ons were stored!The pod that is on the underside of the aircraft. That is true. If you ever need some luggage i'll give you the dive spot where some can be located!  Laugh out loud

That aircraft was also on its way to GRR. One of the agents that worked in GRR at the time was working and i remember talking to him about the accident and the passengers response.
