A futura Jet (presumably a 737) had to turn back to Moscow last night after an engine caught fire.

The plane was chartered by the spanish football (soccer) team Real Madrid.

Does anyone have further information on this?

Heard about it, but not any more details other than those given. Was it a -400 or -800???


When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

What an unlucky team!!!

I did a search on the incident, and found this!!

From Septemer 2000:

Real Madrid's Champions League clash with Bayer Leverkusen will go ahead tomorrow despite a major air scare last night in which their airliner dived more than 15,000 feet.
The European champions are today recovering after the pilot of their Boe-757 airliner was forced to perform a nose dive from an altitude of 33,000 feet following a loss of cabin pressure.

The plane, in French air space, plummeted to 18,000 feet where the air was thick enough to breathe, according to sports newspaper As, which had a reporter on board.

According to the Real Madrid web site - it was a 737-400.

Apparently one of the engines suffered a collision or something (im reading it in spanish here!)

Just read it on Spiegel online (best online news on German internet):
It was a 737-400. It had to return to Moscow, as one of the engines was on fire (probably caught a bird during take-off).



I know it's only VfB but I like it!
