Air Canada Emergency Landing In ATL

Fri Sep 15, 2006 7:21 am

Hi guys, I have just landed in ATL and we had to wait 30 min to cross one of runways. the pilot said we had to wait for a Air Canada with Hidraulic problems. When we crossed we saw what it seemed to be a 737 and tons of fire trucks next to it. Everything seemed fine with it though.

Anyone has more information?

Air Canada has no 737 in their fleet. A A320 maybe?
Takeoffs are optional; landings are mandatory.

I think it was a A320 series a/c.

Hi,

Unless it was a sub, AC doesn't operate the A320 family a/c anymore into ATL. Only EMB-175 or the occasional 190 and QK CRJs. Glad it landed safely as such incidents can happen anytime BUT... If it is an EMB which is most likely, they really are hangar queens... Or as a lot of people would say lately, they should be renamed the EMB-180!

Regards,

'Safe

it looked like there was a 175 sitting off on the side of the field this morning when we were taking off back for St. Louis.
if assumptions could fly, airliners.net would be the world's busiest airport

Yes that is the name pilots gave to them I spoke to in regard of these new EMB's.............. Big grin joke aside no aircraft is fail safe for a hydraulic failure but nice to see they got down and everyone is ok.

You take off and have to do a 180 degree turn and come back.

S5's shuttles seem to be in pretty good shape I havent seen them sitting around much in Denver broken.

Ummmmm....it'd be an EMB360 then, would it not? Unless somebody's specializing in a downwind final...  duck

what? IF you did a 360 degree turn wouldn't you be facing the same direction as you started????

Precisly, if you did a 180 you would be landing the opposite direction you took off in, thus a downwind final. A 360 would be in the normal landing pattern, landing into the wind.

Yes, you would.......if you're returning to your departure point due to mechanical problems, you probably want a conventional (i.e. upwind) landing, which would entail a 360 degree turn to line up on final.

Ok if you want to play that game I guess it would be an EMB180-90-90!

180 to down wind 90 to base then 90 to final.

LOL I think this is the most rediculous argument i have ever been in

I believe all AC flights to/from Atlanta are RJ's.

Good Grief!  Wink

Well, since we're digressing....in an emergency you might not have time to goof around flying a normal pattern. If it means the difference between landing in a neighbourhood or landing on an airfield, I'll definitely take the downwind landing in an airfield.

And now back to your regularly scheduled posting....  Smile

Nope. They fluctuate according to scheduling and seasonal demand. ATL was originally all AC mainline, then AC Jazz, most recently all E175's, and currently a combination of both.

Haha, seems I started a nice arguement about the exact degrees. But I get why it's getting the name EMB180. Thanx

And here I was thinking that a so-called E-180 nickname was derived from the A380 and the Mx problems it currently is facing.
