CO 10 performed an air return this evening, and as of 10:50pm is still on the ground at IAH. The flight is (was) operated by 777 Ship 003.

Hi,

Continental jet lands with malfunction
Copyright 2001 Houston Chronicle

Smoke billowed from the landing gear of a Continental Airlines jumbo passenger jet Sunday night as it landed at Bush Intercontinental Airport with hydraulic problems.

Airport spokesman Ernie Desoto said Flight 10 from Houston to Paris, a Boeing 777, experienced a hydraulic problem shortly after taking off from the airport with 230 people aboard.

The pilot dumped fuel before landing. As the jet touched down, hydraulic fluid that had leaked onto the landing gear was smoking, Desoto said.

He said there were no flames. There was no emergency evacuation of passengers.

And after they cleaned up the hydraulic fluid leakage and fixed the problem the same a/c departed again, 5-1/2 hours behind schedule.

A brand-new plane with such a serious problem? Must have been built on a Friday or Monday!  Wink/being sarcastic

I Heard It On My Scanner!

Tue Feb 27, 2001 6:27 am

I live 15 miles from IAH. I was on my scanner on frequency 123.8 (departure)when I heard it happening. The pilot sounded very calm. Tower then instructed them to switch to frequency 121.5 (emergency) From there, they came in without a problem.

Can't you listen to the emergency frequency? Or was it just a normal landing from then, with the same procedures as at the normal departure frequency.
(i am from Holland, so i interpret you text wrong i think  Big grin ) Sorry for possible inconvenience.

123.8 is only used for flights to the west. They were probably on 119.7 not 123.8
