Anyone awaiting this flight in ORD.... it'll be late.

From a batch of posts on manchesterspotters2

a/c is N386AA

May be on runway for around 30mins - pilot doesn't know if he'll be able to steer off the runway... and MAN ATC is advising other inbounds that there could be inbound delays.... they've only got 1 runway in use at the moment.

Foam used on runway so a/c diverting to LPL.

(google mantma2 group)

It did have an aborted/abandoned take off and went back to the gate for some checks before departing.

Foam used on hot brakes.

Now reporting that..... (manchesterspotters2)

ATC now say that some of the wheels seized and burst some tyres, foam being sprayed and airfield closed until further notice.

Heard reports that flaps were not down - a/c came in very fast and so burst a number of tires on landing. The 767 is now near the WFT presumably for the night. There was a period where no inbound fights were being accepted and so my VFR flight was diverted to Barton.

The Chicago Tribune picked up on the incident pretty quickly (http://www.chicagotribune.com/travel/chi-ap-eu-gen-britain-emerg,1,7356413.story). Based on your report and the fact that the flaps may not have been down, the hydraulic problem in question appears to have been pretty serious. I'm assuming that the crew did not have time to dump fuel, either.

Anyone have any more info on the problem at hand? What's up with all of the long haul diversions lately?!

Saw this approaching MAN over Hyde at around 1400 and thought that it was just a delay to the ORD. Now i kow why.


Proud to fly from Manchester!

Hopefully more details come of this. Seems like something was way out of line to have the plane come straight back without dumping and coming in supposedly over speed with no flaps.

Do all of AA's 763's have the option for fuel dump valves or is it even an option?

What time did it take off? If it left on time at 10:30 it was quite away into it's flight before it turned back.

Looking at the picture in reply 12, the flaps appear not to be fully deployed and as the gear doors are open it looks like an emergency gear down selection as well. Probably a loss of anti-skid protection caused the tire bursts.
BBC reporting that engineers noticed hydraulic problems after departure, they have either got very good eyesight to be able to see that far or noticed hydraulic fluid on the ramp after departure?

Oldtimer, I should have known better!

You can definitely see the left main gear assembly's tires are blown in the pic. Anyone have updates on the bird?

Would be interesting to know how long it will be at MAN and who'll be doing the fixing to the hydrolics etc.



Phoning it in from a place with no phones.

Yes, only 22 hrs late. Presume same crew as previous day which probably accounted for 12 of the 22 hrs
Used to fly on this flight every couple of months for three years(and return of course) and never had a delay. Often late leaving ORD due congestion, but never late into MAN.

Hmmm, well I flew out of ORD in October and the flight was over 2 hours late. A problem with the air conditioning unit on the B763. Information and AA staff at ORD were below par on that occasion it has to be said. Having said that AA were nnounced as MAN's most punctual airline last year so maybe I was unlucky.
