I have also found it interesting that Wideroe has one Q400 on order from Bombardier. I wonder if they will try and cancel the order due to problems experienced with the fleet.
|Quoting Alessandro (Reply 7):|
They had an flight today where a Q400 had to go back to Copenhagen, faulty indications on the instruments.
|Quoting Someone83 (Reply 8):|
Think they still have a few Q400 (in addtion to those Q400 in AAlborg and Vilnius) that are still grounded. Most Q400 flights have now been resumed howevere a few flights are still cancelled for the rest of the week.
|Quoting MCO2BRS (Reply 11):|
What happened to the Augsburg Q400 in MUC? I haven't heard about this one?
|Quoting AgnusBymaster (Reply 13):|
The problem with the Q400 is that basically all the parts were subcontracted to different vendors unlike previous Bombardier aircraft.
|Quoting NA (Reply 15):|
What about the two SAS aircraft which were damaged, one very severe? Will they be repaired or not?
|Quoting Prebennorholm (Reply 14):|
The Q400 landing gear, which caused all this mess, is subcontracted to Goodrich - same subcontractor as Dash-8-100, -200 and -300 landing gears. But it's a different design.
|Quoting Prebennorholm (Reply 16):|
The Aalborg plane is much more severely damaged. Wing hit the ground at full landing speed as the spoilers were extended. Prop parts penetrated the pressurized part of the fuselage. If the wing main spar was bent, then I would assume that it is a write off. Then there is hardly anything left but good tail feathers and a good #1 engine.

I'm not sure but I thought I saw an SAS one of these at LCY Yesterday ?
Did I ? or was it someone elses ? Eitherway I dont think ive seen too many of these at LCY.

"SAS has reinstated the first Dash 8-400 (Q400) aircraft, unfortunately some traffic disturbance is still to be expected. For rebooking and more information, passengers are kindly asked to contact the place of purchase or SAS Sales Services in your country"
