A Dash 8-300 of Austrian Arrows (Tyrolean) had an engine failure during take-off/climb at INN. It seems that one engine was out of order. The incident occured about 30 km east of innsbruck over the town of Jenbach. The plane returned savely to INN. As precaution not only the fire fighters at the airport, but all fire brigades at the city of Innsbruck were alarmed, as the INN approach runs directly over the city center.

Some pretty rugged terrain around that airport - not the most fun place to lose an engine on takeoff, I imagine:

nothing dramatic, but a lot of discussions in the media if the red alert for the city of Innsbruck was necessary.

This thread reminded me of the most fun I've ever had on a commercial plane.

It was early 2001 and I was flying a Tyrolean -8-300 INN-MUC (and then on to HAM where I was going to school), after a glorious week of pretending to be Hermann Maier in St. Anton (this was right after the FIS World Championships). It was also around the time Tyrolean was sponsoring the "Sound of Music" 40th year reunion, with the movie cast featured on the cover of the in-flight magazine.

After we boarded, the Capt. came up on the PA to say that due to a big storm around MUC, which was channeling high winds through the valley, we should expect a bumpy climb out of INN until TOC. Was he right! That was by far the most turbulence I've ever experienced. That "little" plane was being tossed all over the air and the view of those granite walls so close and rising above us made for one quiet cabin.

I was enjoying every minute of it, until this big German or Austrian guy sitting next to me grabbed my hand in panic. I was like "Dude!" and then quickly made up a story to calm him down about being an Embraer engineer, and saying there was no need to be alarmed, that the -8 was one tough little plane and the autopilots were more than capable of handling the turbulence.

After reaching TOC, the fun was over and it was smooth sailing until touchdown in MUC which was clear of the storm by then.

Yeah - Innsbruck is very, very famous for bumpy rides, especially during foehn (these strong southern mountain winds). even at nice, not very windy days you have turbulence when reaching the ridgelines of the valley. I recommend everyone to try a flight to Innsbruck, very nice scenery close to your window - and it doesn't matter on which side of the plane you are sitting.

Sometimes Austrian Airlines has cheap tour-retour flights (Dash and Fokker), FlyNiki (going with Embraer or Airbus 319/320s) has cheap one way tickets.

P.S. This flight was a charter flight from INN to Mali Losinj (Croatia) with 47 PAX
