I Would Like To See This Airplane!

Thu Sep 21, 2006 10:07 am

I found this article in danish, on TV2´s homepage:

Et fly med 125 passager måtte kort efter afgang fra Københavns Lufthavn vende om, fordi en fugl fløj ind i propellerne.

Det er meget sjældent, at en fugl er skyld i sådan en sikkerhedslanding, men ellers forekommer de af andre årsager ca. en gang om ugen.

"Det var et MD 80-fly med propeller, og piloten har formentlig hørt eller set fuglen eller på anden måde opdaget, at den er fløjet ind i propellerne," fortæller vagthavende ved politiet i Københavns Lufthavn.

Det er ikke umiddelbart farligt, men når det sker, kan flyet af sikkerhedsmæssige årsager ikke flyve videre, forklarer vagthavende.


A quick translation of the essential part:

A plane with 125 passengers had to return, shortly after departure from CPH, because a bird flew in to the propellors.

It was an MD-80 plane with propellors, and the pilot probably saw or heard the bird, or in another way discovered that the bird flew into the propellors.


First i thought, what plane with propellors carry 125 passengers ?

But then of course, i found out, that it was the brand new SAS MD-80, propellor driven airplane  Smile

I also find it very interesting, that the pilot heard, saw or in another way discovered that the bird hit the airplane.

With that statement, he covered everything. I guess you can call that qualifying your remarks...

Cheers

My guess is that they obviously meant fan instead of prop. The MD-80 part is probably right.

Any more info atm?
Well I believe it all is coming to an end. Oh well, I guess we are gonna pretend.

Yes I have heard about it, but I haven't seen it yet. It must one of the special airplane updates. Hope not those blades were damaged.:D

Well I doubt he saw it, unless he was running through the cabin and saw it through one of the small cabin windows. And hearing it? Well he might have heard some slight change to the motor sound, but hearing that it went in... No. I think he discovered it on his gauges... They would indicate some kind of engine malfunction for a split second...

Or maybe the moved the propellor to the front on this brand new aircraft ?? Just like on a Cessna..

It happens quite often at CPH. The location of the airport does, that a lot of animals get in the way in CPH.

DUH, come on guys don't be so skeptical.

They were probably flying in reverse so the pilot would have seen the bird come out of the engine and the propeller. The bird would have been covered in Prop Wash so the windows would be getting wet. Also as they were flying backwards the pilot would have easily been able to hear the bird screaming.

I can't believe how cynical A.netter have become.

That is imposable. Everybody knows that MD-80s can't fly backwards below 20,000 feet and there are very few birds above 20,000 feet except during penguin mating season. Even then air traffic is routed around the penguin migration route to avoid just this type of thing from happening. Some peoples lack of knowledge really surprises me!
It's not a near miss it's a near hit!!
