Did a search and turned nothing up on this so I figured I would post.

According to the below link and the attached pictures, there was an on-board fire in the cockpit of ASA CRJ-200ER N830AS while she was at the gate at Tallahassee Regional Airport (KTLH) on 28FEB09.

Any word on the status of the aircraft? Is she back in service yet? And is there any word on what caused the fire in the first place?

Inquring former airline employee minds would like to know...

Are you serious....??? It will be months if not a year or more before they would get that fixed... and that's if its not BER. By the looks of the fire damage it would have been electrical. The fact in the top photo you can look clear into the cockpit and its extensive fire damage it's doubtful it will fly again....

I'm going with 'no' on that one.... I'd say there is a decent chance this aircraft's flying days may be done. I guess it all depends on the extent of the hidden damage.

With a glut of CRJs on the market and not much demand, I'm guessing that adds to the notion that this aircraft may not be repaired. I'll defer the actual answer to somebody at DL but the former is my opinion.



None shall pass!!!!

No I wasn't... Though, I thought maybe, if they stuck a payne of glass in there it would make a good skylight...  Wink

Really I was fishing for an unofficial response from someone who knew whether she was going to be written off. Just didnt want it to be obvious...  Smile

A ~11 year old CRJ probably doesnt stand much of a chance. Don't know where she was at hours and cycles wise, but I bet it was up there. Around 35k hours or so...commiserate amount of cycles...

I think that bird is done. For it to show that much damage on the outside, the internal damage has to be even worse. Most likely repair option would be to graft a nose section from a retied example onto this frame. At 11 yrs of age in this market that would probably cost more than the scrap value of the airframe.

No word yet on the cause of the fire. No passengers were on board at the time of the fire, and the crew escaped safely.

The aircraft will be written off.

Just curious NW747-400 but what are your sources that it will be written off?

I'd have to agree. Folks will likely next see the aircraft in the form of a convenient 12-pack of Bud Light...  Wink
