Recently Damaged DL Planes - Updates?

Mon May 07, 2012 3:19 pm

Last night in ATL I saw a DL B767-300ER N185DN/185 at the E concourse and the left winglet was all white. I had not noticed it before and was wondering if this was the plane that collided with the EV CRJ-700 in BOS I believe. Which leads me to this thread. What is the status of the recently damaged DL planes? I remember the 767 and I think there was a 737 in ORD or somewhere around that area. Also, there was the 737 that went into the ditch in ATL just recently. Does anybody have the specific ships and the statuses? Feel free to add incidents or correct dates, locations, plane types, etc.

Can't speak for the other aircraft, but this one (N309DE) was only out of service about 2 1/2 weeks. It's been flying since the end of March.

I asked about N185DN a few months ago on a different thread. This was the reply given by user JBMITT:

"B767 N185DN was fixed with a new winglet and flew out 2 days later on 7/16/11. The CR9 N132EV had a new empennage put on by Bombardier in BOS then flew to Greenville, MS to be painted on 8/29/11. It hasn't been back through BOS since. According to the NTSB, no probable cause has been determined yet."

Also, according to the original thread, N309DE, the 73W that was off the runway in ATL had a check flight on 3/30 and should be back in service already.

Sounds like DL repairs their planes fairly quickly. I am impressed! I vaguely recall an incident in ORD. Anybody have any info on that?

If you're thinking about the MD88 that was pushed into the 319, both are back in service. The 319 flew out the next day without the wing fence, and the 88 was repaired and left about a week later.

There was a thread not too long ago about a DL airplane whose tires burst on landing.... how much damage would that cause to the undercarriage? Does anybody have info on that incident as well?
