Continental DC10 Makes Emergency Landing At Narita

Sep 1, 2001

A Continental Airlines DC10 jet bound for Guam from Tokyo with 240 passengers and crew on board made an emergency landing at Tokyo's Narita international airport yesterday after the pilot reported possible trouble with the plane's landing gear.

Nobody was injured when Flight 964 landed safely back at Narita at 10:19 p.m. yesterday.

The jet took off from Narita at 8:55 p.m and about 30 minutes later the pilot noticed that the indicator showing when the landing gear has retracted properly had not come on. The pilot then decided to return to Narita as a precaution.

Passengers were taken to hotels near the airport to spend the night and were expected to fly to Guam today.

The plane was carrying 228 passengers and 12 crew.

Separately, a Delta Air Lines plane bound for Los Angeles also returned to Narita after its pilot reported trouble with a gauge that monitors ice on the wings, a news report said.

Delta Flight 78, carrying 176 passengers and crew, returned safely to Narita at 7:57 p.m. Friday, Kyodo News agency reported.

It's good that no one was hurt. Does anyone have the reg. number of the CO DC-10? I love CO DC-10s. I have flown on many of them and since CO has a limited number of them I could have flown on this one.

It is time for CO to get rid of it's aging DC-10s now that they have more new 767s & 777s. United and American have gotten rid of their DC-10s months ago in favor of new 767s & 777s.

Aircraft of all ages have malfunctions and problems from time to time. those D10's are probably in better shape than some of the 767's and 747's in some fleets.

Treat others as you expect to be treated!

Ah for chrissakes- If I hear one more "we have to get rid of the aging aircraft" already... ( sigh ) -- A plane is not some monolithic entity- it is comprised of many systems and subsystems- each of which has about a gazillion parts- most of which are changed either, on condition or time, many times throughout a plane's service life. I remember about 10-12 years ago a 2 week old 737-400 that had a MLG indication failure. It was just a bad proximity sensor. I've seen many more brand new and nearly new aircraft ( of every manufacturer BTW ) go out of service due to various problems. Newsflash: They are machines...and complicated ones at that. Things happen.

Hey Tedski,

We're working on it!

Money doesn't grow on trees, you know. The DC-10s are being replaced on a one-for-one basis with the 767-200/400 and 777. We can only replace them as fast as Boeing can build new ones.

I'm sure going to miss seeing all of those CO DC-10's at IAH.
