Status Of G-EUOE

Sat Jul 27, 2013 4:56 pm

I have heard nothing of G-EUOE, the BAW A319 involved in the engine cover detatchment in May. Also, Airframes.org has not noted it flying since. Is the aircraft being repaired or is it a write off?

I have never heard of an aircraft being scrapped for a nacelle failing off.

While it seems unlikely to be a write-off (why would it be?), it hasn't made any flights recently.
Perhaps the aircraft is still being examined ... but again this also seems unlikely.

Still out of service for a couple of months more at least.

There was more damage than that :S

I don't know how post the link to the original thread, but this was discussed recently and a detailed answer to your question provided by TristarSteve.

If you search for the following phrase:

"When Is G-EUOE Due Back In Service?" you'll find the original post and the subsequent discussion.

Did the nacelles impact something ? Or are the engines damaged and it's not worth it to put spare ones on, just repair these on the wings ?

Correcting myself, as I already, even after a few seconds, seem unable to edit my post, the 'detailed answer' I seem to remember appears to have disappeared!

Just a brief answer appears now from Tristarsteve, but the aircraft is indeed still under repair...

It's still in the hanger with no engines and a temporary fence around it.

I asked this question a few weeks back. Link below includes AAIB report and also feedback from TristarSteve.

Looks like G-EUOE won't be back for a while.

Yes, sorry, bluesky73, I meant to mention you in the credits for the post when I quoted your opening question.

Will be good to see her back in the air...

No worries pegasus1, thought i'd attach the link again as it had AAIB report which listed damage to G-EUOE as it wasn't just the engines damaged.
