Just saw in the midday news on TV that yesterdays (Oct 07) Santa Barbara flight CCS-MAD had to return to CCS and perform an emergency landing after losing one of its 3 engines 30min after departure to MAD. I haven't seen any online news yet, anyone has more info?

I think this will mean the end of Santa Barbara's DC10s ops. This is another incident after being grounded a couple of weeks ago because of many in flight emergencies. I hope the best to my favorite Venezuelan airline.

To bad to read this words ......  Sad

I have to say that this is probably Santa Barbaras fault. They have been watched for their operation now for a while. They should now really have taken better care about the planes. The DC-10 is an old aircraft but a reliable one. If they think by buying 767's or 777's the problem would be solved, they are wrong. Those planes need maintenance as well and will end up in exactly the same shape after a short period only if they will not take care properly about.

There are other operators of the DC-10 in the world with fleets larger than them and not having those problems with the aircraft. Santa Barbara should as a first step not change the fleet, but fire the maintenance manager and his superior, having them replaced with good characters. Only by doing a serious job they can assure the future of the airline.

Hello:
Does anyone what time did it happen?

I ask you because yesterday (Friday 7th), I heard a Santa Barbara DC-10 take off from TFN at about 3 PM Canary Islands time (4 PM clock MAD time) with an almost unbearable noise. When I first heard it I ran to my window because I wondered which plane could be that one; was even noisier than the Cygnus Air DC-8 which comes often here. When I saw it was the SB DC-10 I could hardly believe it because I always remembered the DC-10 noise as quite moderate and with a special sound, but yesterday it reminded me an old 707 one.

I don't know if the flight was departing to MAD or to CCS, but I am almost sure it had arrived from CCS. So do you think it was the same one?

And anyway, those who hear it frequently. Is normally such a noisy plane the SB DC-10?. Thank you.

What I would like to know if the SB DC-10 I saw yesterday October 7th taking off from TFN, could be the same that had an engine explosion flying from MAD to CCS. That is why I remarked that I didn't know if "the flight I saw" was departing to MAD or to CCS. (Obviously, if it had departed to CCS, could not be the same one, as it could not have had time to go back to MAD and to restart a flight to CCS the same day).

I hope now the question is clear.
Thank you

It departed from CCS around 7-8PM local time. It was bound to MAD. So yes, maybe this was the same DC10. I think TFN-CCS flight time is around 6 hours, so if it departed TFN at 11AM local CCS time, it landed in CCS at 5PM in time for a 7-9PM departure back to Europe. Interesting to read your post regarding the higher than usual noise of the DC10 engines. Maybe it has something to do with the incident.

The problem is not only the maintanance management, but maybe also the currency regulations in Venezuela. The airlines do not get enough US$ in order to keep their fleet well maintained. So you are right, the same thing will happen with their 767.
We already have one airline (LAI) that had to stop operations with their two ATRs due to lack of money for spareparts.

My experience is, that starting aircraft sound very different depending on the winds and other circumstances of weather.
But if something was wrong with the engines in TFN already, then they should not only fire the maintanance manager, but also the cockpit crew of that flight for flying the aircraft.

The government is spending so much money in scilly and senseless projects (Conviasa beeing one of them) instead of taking care about the essentials.
Air traffic will not improve by regulating every sh**, from fares to customer rights etc.

I absolutely agree with you that it can be very difficult to maintain a fleet in good technical conditions if the own currency is weak, so everything very expensive.

Still, this is no excuse and the ones responsible for the maintenance of the planes are the ones finally responsible if they do not comply with international standards. I personally do not think that they do not correspond with international standards, as this would be very silly. They would risk to loose traffic rights if it comes to inspections. I rather think that they do the works to a point they "just" comply. There are several ways to do maintenance. There are things if you know the plane and it's systems you may say "leave it as it is..." as their will be no risk. This is highly dependable from the experience of the person taking care. But an aircraft works as your body. If you have something wrong with a tooth and you won't go to the dentist, nothing will happen, as you will eat on the other side in your mouth. In the beginning...... but after a while you will have problems on the other side as well, because of much higher use, plus an asymmetric you give to the bones and all that. The final problem will be much higher and cost you several times more to bring in order apart from all the pain you will suffer from. So they are highly advised to do a complete overhaul and bring the planes into a good shape, then they can be quite and maintenancecosts will be in the normal range.

They should have a special view on their international services. Here they can generate revenues in Dollars and Euros, money they can use to buy spareparts and do the maintenance. Exactly here they need those DC-10's.

So as hard as it may be to get the money together to have those planes in good shape, there is no way that leads around. I hope the best for them and would love them to see them back with those lovely DC-10's.

The point is not that the Bolivar is "weak". It's just that - if you want to change them into US$ or another currency - you have to apply for that at CADIVI. They authorize, you pay them in Bs and get US$ or whatever you applied for.
Here a link is Spanish in case you understand a bit:
http://www.el-nacional.com/Articulos...rticulo.asp?Id=68116&IdSeccion=178

If you don't get approved US$ you just simply have NO money at all to pay for spareparts, fuel etc. No one abroad will accept Bolivares for spareparts - weak or not. It's just not convertible.

And I agree, S3 has a certain income in foreign currency by BSP payments abroad, in the US, Spain etc. But this money is needed for the payment of offices, salaries and - most of all - FUEL.

This is no excuse for bad maintenance, just one of the reasons.
I am much more concerned about the pilots. If they know that those aircraft are in a bad shape - and they are - why do they risk their and the passengers lives ?

And finally: I hope they do not only cancel the flights to Europe yesterday, but all of them until they get other aircraft. Because otherwise, if one of these DC10 lands in Spain again, they will be the first airline on a Spanish blacklist.

I don't think that an engine fire well into the flight (the topic says 30 minutes after departure) may have jeopardized the safety of the aircraft. You might have had a point had the failure happened at V1.

"Blew up"......hmmm. I don't think so. Sounds like a compressor stall to me (probably saw fire out the tailpipe, not from the engine itself, and they make one or more several loud booms). It's a relatively common occurrence (as engine anomalies go). If that's the case, no big deal, although I'd be curious to know the reason behind it.

As it was previously mentioned that DC10 has been in LGW for almost a month now undergoing maintenance. The ship at LGW is YV-1040. The ship that had the emergency is YV-1052C.

More info on the topic, . Spanish only sorry.

What it says is that flights to Europe have been cancelled until the "new" B767s arrive. They expect the suspension of flights to last 2 weeks.

As I thought... this is the end of pax service for the DC10 in Venezuela. The DC10 was such a nice ship flying over the venezuelan skies since the 70s. Viasa was the first one to operate it when it bought some of them brand new from Douglas back in the 70s. Then Avensa operated the ones that Santa Barbara currently has.

Over the years with Continental, and especially late in the 1990s, we had multiple uncontained failures with the CF6-50 on our DC-10s. I'm not going to say they are unreliable, but these issues are certainly not foreign with that engine, even on the most well-maintained examples.

I really don't know how they want to introduce a new type within 2 weeks only. I adquiered a new type more than once and had this challenging job more than once to do. Sure, they have already the 757 which shares commonality in several aspects with the 767 but it's still another type.
First of all they need to make contracts, have them run trough their legal department and the one of the lessor. This will last several weeks. In parallel they need to deal out the clue with the banks what is not that fast either.
Then they need to accept that bird, bring it to the country and register it. They also need to settle everything with customs and taxes on that.
Operations needs to prepare all the documentation and manuals for. They need to introduce that to all stations they want to fly with. They need to have the ground equippement and train all the staff. Finally they need to train the flight attendants and the pilots. The pilots will need to get a route intro as it's a new type. They also will need to be signed off. Finally Santa Barbara was not an ETOPS operator yet, so......???? Even not necessary to mention that a pilots training for a 767 may last something between 4 and 5 weeks.
I have some huge question marks here and I'd rather expect them to bring the DC-10 back. Maybe in two weeks the one standing in LGW will be ready to fly.
The only way I could imagine them to run the flights by a 767 is if they go with a wet lease, for example with Air Atlanta Iceland. Those Nordic guys are pretty good and I could imagine that they get it in 2 weeks.

Good Luck Santa Barbara, Cheers

AirEuropa and Iberia

There is multiple ways in which the passengers will reach CCS.

They could be on Avianca, Iberia, American (via MIA), Continental (via EWR), Alitalia (via MXP), Delta (via ATL), Air France (via CDG) the list goes on and on.

Most likely the passengers are on Iberia, Air Europa, or Avianca to CCS.

When the second DC-10 comes out of maintenance in LGW will it join the Santa Barbara fleet along with the B767-300 and B757-200 or will it no longer fly for them? (Is the one at LGW YV-1052C or YV1040C?)
