Sounds like either an engine failure, smoke somewhere, or hydraulic problems. All of the fire brigades are typical in the event of any type of possible emergency.

Very interesting. They have too many problems with these dc-10. Not too long ago another dc-10 would crash at EWR. Follow this link to see

What you guys think about this?

I have got to say that it was pretty cool to be able to report an aircraft failure right at the moment of it happening but not being at the airport but in Belgium. ling live the webcfams. But let us be happy everything went allright and no one was hurt. The fact that the aircraft will leave later prooves something was wrong. maybe hydraulic problems, maybe an engine. it is up to you guys overthere in Zurich to find it out for all of us.
Thanx for the info so far

That is a pitty, that you cannot obtain some more information. It musn't have been a major problem as the aircraft is already back in the air. Maybe some spotters who were there at the moment have got an idea about the real cause. It was, again, strange that I was able to follow it live. More airports should have a live web cam.

I think that you dont know a US Airways and Continental apart nor do you know the difference between LaGuardia and EWR OR a crash and a near miss....OR a DC-10 from...well, I think you get the picture.

Just what kinds of trouble does CO have with their DC-10s that somehow relate to their age? Not many I presume. The DC-10, in relation to the percentage of the entire fleet still in service as opposed to those that have been scrapped or written off is impressive. About 9% of the fleet is out of service compare that to about 12% for the 747. Fewer DC-10s have been scrapped than any other of the 1st generation widebody aircraft.
