Does anyone know anything about the incident at Manchester when a US Airways A330-300 had to make an emergency landing on the 28th Feb?

I have only noticed this with the comments the photographer has put on the photo's but didn't give details of the incident or the problem.

I am curious as I am due to fly from LGW on the A330-300 with US Airways on the 16th Feb.

Looks like there was a malfunction with the flaps according to the statement on one of the photos.

You could be right there as the flaps don't look extended and she required the full length of the runway.

It looks as if it was quite a fast landing, good job MAN has a reasonably size runway, when you compare to to other airports like LTN, BHX and NCL.

I think it was something really minor as we didn't hear any news other than the photo.

Does anyone know how fast they would have to bring an A333 in without flaps? I'm guessing somewhere around 170-180 knots? I know this depends on winds, humidity, and weight but I'm just looking for a ballpark figure.

While I'm sure it was very upsetting to the passengers, the crew did an outstanding job in bringing the craft in.

If the flaps on one side aren't working correctly, stuck or whatnot, do you land with no flaps on the other side as well?

Gigneil, the flaps are designed so that if they don't go down on one side, the other is physically blocked from going down. If it wasn't, there would be a huge difference in lift, and get very hard (if not impossible) to maneuver the plane.

well if the flaps are only deployed on one side and not on the other isn't that equivalent to the ailerons on that same side being deployed and not on the other?

Kai-

Thanks I was fairly positive of that, but wanted to hear it from someone else.

Is finding your flaps stuck a fairly common occurrence?

I agree that pilots don't fly with more flaps on one wing than the other. But I'm just wondering like you said if the operational flaps are blocked from extending more than the stucked one when do pilots come across the term flaps disagreement?

Thanks!
