Hey!

Today (11/5) at work I saw that US 193, FRA-CLT, came back to FRA around 1ish after having departed (computer log said Inbound from FRA) from there. The airplane was then towed to V168 (that's apron, way out there, not anywhere where the plane is usually parked) and it also had an N proceeding the flight, which normally indicates an emergency landing.

Does anyone know anything about this flight?

usairways.com says the flight was cancelled, but they don't give a reason.

Though the second leg of US193 (CLT-LAX) operated normally.

Can't draw any useful conclusions from that: most of US's transAtlantic flight numbers have onward domestic legs with the same number, but they are all actually different aircraft.

I'm aware it's the same flight number and a different aircraft. FRA-CLT operates with an A330-300, and CLT-LAX is an A321. I was just noting that CLT-LAX operated normally.

Got the details to the incident at work today:

Upon takeoff, a tire exploded, and, similar to the Concorde tragedy, parts of the tire hit the wing. It supposedly ripped a pretty huge junk out of the flaps. Don't know if the aircraft dumped fuel (I would assume, since most transatlantic flights leave with a TOW higher than maximum landing weight). They replaced the tire and then flew the aircraft to CLT with the hole in the flaps! Appearently they made it without problems. Didn't hear anything different. And no news normally means good news in aviation.  Smile
