Couple Of Emergencies At MAN

Mon Aug 11, 2003 9:29 pm


Both occurred yesterday:

1) Thomas Cook A330 G-OJMC operating TCX 473L on the SFB-MAN route had a faulty air conditioning unit which led to some people not feeling very well; it was alleged to have been given an expeditious approach into MAN. Aircraft stayed on the ground for about 10 hours, with G-OJMB positioning up from LGW in mid-afternoon to operate the MAN-YVR sector, with G-OJMC routing to LGW.

and

2) BACitiExpress ERJ145 G-EMBY on BRT172 (or BA 4172) routing ABZ-BHX declared a mayday due to indications of smoke in the rear hold. Aircraft landed safely and the firemen couldn't find any evidence of anything untoward.

True enough.....last night (about 23.20) an easyJet 737 (G-IGOT I believe) diverted to MAN because of a tech problem which precluded him from landing at LPL. No idea of nature of the problem.

Wet runway @ LPL I hear.

Probably anti-skid & reverse inop.
