Hi there !
Just read the news on a local online paper, and apparently a flight operated by Austral Lineas Aereas, departed Aeroparque bound for Bariloche, had to burn fuel and return to AEP. Anybody knows what happened?? Type of aircraft??

Hola Estick,



Un avión de Austral aterrizó en emergencia en Aeroparque

Un avión de Austral tuvo que aterrizar hoy en emergencia en el aeropuerto Jorge Newbery, después de sufrir un desperfecto en el tren de aterrizaje, informaron fuentes aeronáuticas.

Los voceros dijeron que el piloto del avión, que iba hacia Bariloche, decidió quemar combustible antes de volver a Buenos Aires, desde donde había despegado.


Most likely a B737-200, as I flew on last year to BRC. LV-ZTE and -ZYI both experienced minor emergenices last year, the former with the flaps and the latter over a fuel or engine problem if I recall--nothing serious. More worryingly, it was one of their MD-81s that lost a wheel last February (-WPY) and considering the alleged nature of today's incident (landing gear), I hope Austral's maintenance department aren't suffering from a bout of negligence.

Type of aircraft??

Hopefully it wasn't my username!



How do you say "12 months" in Estonian?

Yeap...Hopefully not your username and hopefully the gear remained down!!

Greetings !

Esto si que es increible! (tambien de LA NACION):

Un avión de pasajeros que se dirigía a Bariloche desde esta capital tuvo problemas con el tren de aterrizaje y debió volver al aeroparque metropolitano tras quemar combustible para perder peso.

Un portavoz de la Fuerza Aérea dijo que el avión de la empresa Austral a cargo del vuelo 2694 con destino a Bariloche despegó del aeroparque a las 11.20 con 118 pasajeros a bordo.

Tras decolar el comandante de la nave informó que el tren de aterrizaje no subió por lo cual debió dar vueltas en círculos y quemar combustible para perder peso, "tal cual señalan las normas aeronáuticas", dijo la fuente consultada por esta agencia. El vocero aseguró que la nave "en ningún momento se declaró en emergencia".

Con el peso indicado, el avión, un MD81 matrícula LVWPY, aterrizó sin inconvenientes a las 12.39 en la misma aeroestación de la que había partido.

Se informó que la Junta de Accidentes de Aviación Civil se encontraba trabajando para determinar cuáles fue el origen del problema en el tren de aterrizaje.


-WPY was the same MD-81 that lost a wheel last year at AEP. I wonder what the hell is wrong with it (asides from being one of the oldest MD-80s in the world...)?
