AC836 landed about an hour late at MAD and AC837 departed two hours late. Can it be related to that take off incident? We'll learn it at a later stage.

the plane is still in a holding patern southeast of MAD, all ready for them to land in Barajas but apparently they need at least1 more hour, schedule landing is 19.30-20.00 Madrid time or 18.30-19.00Z.

The problem is not the engine, the problem is landing overweight, MAD has very long runways, the problem is if the landing gear is damage and the brakes, they can't be sure of the Landing distance they need, so i guess they will try to reduce the fuel as much as possible.

Appealing to smarter minds than mine to confrim or reject this notion - if a blow tire caused engine damage, given the location of the main gear (behind the engines) would it be reasonable to conclude the blown tire was on the nose gear?


Not necessarily. a rotating tire can have a forward motion component as well so if a chunk was ejected at the right time, it may have been flung in front of the wheel. In this case that means a maingear tire can't be ruled out.

30 year old plane, closer to 31 seems old for a plane, not sure if it is or not, are there any comparable examples?
I am confident that all maintenance is up to date, stuff happens, doubtful that age has anything to do with this incident, what are your thoughts?

There were drone issues causing havoc apparently this morning, airport was shut for a period, more likely to have caused these delays.

You typically don't screw around landing overweight if you already have reports of damage to landing gear, especially if the rest of the aircraft systems are stable. We're all talking about this from our chairs, the pilots in the aircraft have the best view of the situation and call the shots.

Landing overweight can be risky in any situation. Doing it with one engine inoperable, and unknown gear issues, is just too many risks at once if they are doing ok otherwise. Of course they won't carry on back to Toronto, but they aren't going to rush landing the thing and potentially having a gear collapse on a flaming engine with wings full of fuel.


Imagine, calmly handling an engine out. Surprised that they didn't find a school to dump fuel over at a low altitude unannounced like another carrier we know... :duck:

That 767 doesnt seem to have the capability to dump fuel. Besides, dumping fuel areas are supposed to be authorized by ATC.

The 767 can only dump fuel from the center tank. After you dump the center you have to burn the wing fuel or land overweight.

For EDTO/ETOPS, there is no maximum time you are allowed to fly on one engine. An aircraft maybe dispatched under EDTO/ETOPS 180 minutes for example that will assume an aircraft remains within 3 hrs flight time at maximum speed, and typically you only then need to land with 15 minutes of fuel.

The captain may decide after a failure to fly a more regular speed and thus reduce the fuel burn to the diversion airport giving them more fuel on arrival, which allows for more options.

There is a difference between how diversions are planned, and how they are flown.

Yes but some B767 cannot dump fuel at all. The BA fleet was about half could dump, and half could not. No idea why.

That's because it's a 767. If it was a 777 or A330, or an A320 of the same age the clickbait millenial-industrial complex would not have made a peep.

They can in theory fly as long as they want. ETOPS is essentially a planning exercise to ensure that if an engine loss occurs they can divert to a suitable airport within 180 (or whichever its certified for) minutes. As soon as they depart, if they lose an engine and need to fly for 4 hours to burn off fuel then they can do that. One of the main limits on ETOPS certification isn't really to do with the engines but cargo hold fire suppressant. In theory a cargo fire should stay contained for 3 hours on an ETOPS 180 aircraft, but not necessarily any longer. But it would happily fly on a single engine for much longer.

It is understandable with a landing gear issue that you'd want to be light as possible. The runways in Madrid are long but if you have burst tyres then being as light as possible is an ideal aim to avoid causing further issues on touchdown.

Some A350s are being delivered without fuel jettison systems too, so it wouldn't be surprising if this 767 doesn't have a fuel jettison system.

I found that. It was the ** that had me ask the question. But since they have been right hand race tracking this long, I presume it can’t.

No this particular 767 involved in this incident does not have jettison capability. It doesn’t even have the nozzle for it
