MD-82 And Loud Screeching Sound

Mon Sep 24, 2007 8:50 am

On a YX flight from MCI to SFO we were taxiing to the runway in rain. When we held short there was a horrific screeching, like metal on metal when the brakes came on. The pilots didn't really notice and it didn't happen again. It also did not happen while taxiing, only hold short. Ideas?
Just say NO to scabs.

Sounds like there was a bird nesting in the brake assembly....  Wink

New brake pads adjusting clearences in rain maybe the cause of that sound,which normally reduces with time & as the brakes dry up.

Sorry, I meant that they didn't say anything to the pax, not that they didn't notice it up front. Should of been more clear. By the way I am brand new a.net

That's what I thought you meant. I'm sure the pilots noticed something, but they probably knew what it was and knew that it was nothing bad, therefore didn't let the passengers know. Unless it affects the passengers, they aren't told anything. Welcome to a.net!
