Has anyone experienced an eventful flight so far? Such as an emergency landing, engine shutdown or any other event that could be labeled as incident or accident (God forbid). Could you please share your experience? I am just curios to know how it is like.
Thank you.

US 0014, PHL-MUC a few years back. One of US's old 767's, we took off from PHL, were heading up the coast, got as far as BOS before an "engine warning indicator" went off in the cockpit. Pilot informed us that we would have to turn around and proceed back to PHL as a precaution but that we should be back on our way to MUC as soon as they found the cause of the false indicator. After performing a full emergency landing procedure in PHL (heads on the seats in front of you, fire equipment following the aircraft down the runway) we disembarked at the gate and were told to wait for further announcements. Hours later, still nothing, as the left engine on the 767 had been practically ripped apart by the mechanics looking (presumably) for what caused the warning light, to no avail. Ended up waiting on an inbound 767 from maintenance in CLT to ferry us to MUC, ended up arriving in MUC at ~3:00PM, approximately 5 hours behind schedule.

Air Canada B742M SIN-BOM-LHR... 1990'ish
Main deck cargo door lock indicator light showed "unlocked" as power was applied from a full stop take off... it happened twice, third time lucky.

Scandinavian B763, SIN-BKK-CPH, 1992'ish.
Delayed by 3 hours due to closure of Afghanistan airspace, causing our flight to fly at FL270-290 ish until India (which resulted in an occasion when a HUGE side gust caught the plane and tipped it by 30 degrees all of a sudden)

AWAir PK-AWA, A313 SUB-CGK, July 2000.
Uncontrolled fuel vent on left wing on take off, with a 180 degree turn... flew over a refunery! Cabin crew fought about who is to blame for door 3L not being armed. Cabin crew said the fuel venting was "normal" and would go thicker as "we go faster"... Left engine failed in descent at FL340 (from 350) and relit only at FL160. A few months later, the same plane had the left engine written off in a controversial fire.


When losing situational awareness, pray Cumulus Granitus isn't nearby !

Well I've had plenty though they are all military releated on my E-3. Lost engines, lost pressure, bad a/r ,etc etc.

Never had one on a civilian flight, though I've been delayed on the ground for mx problems several times
