A Mesaba plane taking off from the Hibbing Airport had engine problems the other day.
The plane did not get 2 miles away from the airport before returning do to problems.
Plane landed just fine even though emergency crews did rush to the airport.
Channel 5 has a small story about it.

Hibbing

Which would make it a Saab.

Glad to hear all went well.

Compressor stall due to extreme cold temps seemed to be the culprit from what I understand.

Those Northern Minnesota temps can get even more ugly then the Twin Cities at times.

There was a sidebar in the Petoskey paper on Friday here that said that an XJ Saab took off from PLN Thursday morning and had to immediately return after takeoff due to engine problems.

It was the 6:15am departure for the RON aircraft and I believe the temp was at least -10 in the "ice box of the nation"

Thankfully temps will be warmer for a bit this week in the 30s pretty much in Minnesota so the planes won't get beat up to much.
Curious though to see what happens if those planes have anymore problems this week or not.
You always hope it is just weather related and not something that would end up grounding them for awhile.

Most of the time it does, last week here in GFK which is essentually the same we were about 10-20 degrees colder than MSP, we were at -43 without windchill last week.

With the cold, and all the CRJ cold weather problems, makes me wonder why NW has been sending 9E up so much. The 5am and 3pm outbounds are all the CRJ now. The irony of a Canadian built aircraft not fairing so well in (upper) Canadian like temps.   Back on topic, however glad the XJ airplane made it back to the airfield ok. Heck at these temps, I wouldn't want to go out either.

What is your source for this? I have never heard of a serviceable engine having a compressor stall due to low temperatures.

When i worked in MQT during the cold weather we had 2 options; 1. leave the plane at the gate with a heater cord plugged in for the engines, 2. tow the plane down to the hanger if significant snowfall was going to fall that night or already was.

The plane ferried to MSP the next day, so nothing major.


911, where is your emergency?

My source is the company, its memos and current saab pilots. Special measures are taken for compressor stall avoidance in the mornings, when it's cold. I guess the cold was too cold for an ECS takeoff for that CT7s. Similar incidents on two other planes occurred recently as well.
