How important are good readbacks?

Believe it or not, I gave you a 280 heading cuz most controllers you'd have to hold a gun to their head to have an arrival fly into the face of a departure.

Uncontained Engine Failure - Southwest 1380

A Southwest Boeing 737-700, registration N772SW performing flight WN-1380 from New York La Guardia,NY to Dallas Love,TX (USA) with 143 passengers and 5 crew, was climbing through FL320 out of New York when the left hand engine (CFM56) was damaged causing inlet and parts of the cowl to separate from the airframe, debris impacted the side of the fuselage shattering a passenger window causing the loss of cabin pressure. The crew donned their oxygen masks, reported they had an engine failure and engine fire and were to initiate an emergency descent, shut the engine down and diverted to Philadelphia,PA (USA). The crew requested a 20nm final, reported part of the aircraft was missing, they needed to slow down, they did have an engine fire indication, the crew requested medical services to meet the aircraft, they had injured passengers. ATC understood a passenger might have been sucked out of the aircraft but stopped that discussion "we'll work it out" once the aircraft was on the ground. ATC cleared the flight down to 3000 feet, airspeed on pilot's discretion and instructed the crew to report as soon as they wanted to turn base. While the aircraft was on short final tower advised emergency services there was a hole in the aircraft's side. The aircraft landed safely on runway 27L, vacated the runway and stopped on the adjacent taxiway. The crew advised emergency services their left hand side was damaged, they had injuries inside the cabin. Emergency services foamed the left hand engine, the passengers disembarked via stairs onto the taxiway and were taken to the terminal. One passenger was taken to a hospital with serious injuries. The NTSB later reported one passenger has died (presumably the one taken to the hospital).

TAM8078_KJFK_092612_Gear_Issue.mp3

TAM flight 8078 having gear issues at JFK (09/26/12)

 

A TAM Linhas Aereas Airbus A330-200, registration PT-MVQ performing flight JJ-8078 (dep Sep 25th) from Rio de Janeiro,RJ (Brazil) to New York JFK,NY (USA) with 190 people on board, was on final approach to JFK's runway 22R when the crew initiated a go around at about 300 feet AGL. The crew reported they had 35 minutes of fuel remaining until consuming into diversion fuel, they had a problem with the nose gear steering and advised they would not be able to vacate the runway and needed to be towed off the runway, they did not declare emergency.

The crew requested another approach to runway 22R, positioned for another approach and was on final approach to 22R 18 minutes later in contact with tower, when the tower told the crew he was told the nose gear appeared to be in the wrong position, the crew reported the nose gear was indicated down, they just had no nose wheel steering and wanted to continue the landing. A few seconds later tower, quite alerted, advised the nose gear appeared to be sideways, the crew decided to go around from about 200 feet MSL.

The crew subsequently reported on departure that everything appeared normal with the nose gear except for a steering fault, but tower reported the nose gear was turned sideways, so the crew wanted to run the checklists and were preparing for another approach. Departure offered runway 31L which was accepted, the aircraft positioned for the approach, departure subsequently relayed a message of TAM maintenance to the crew to reset a switch related to the nose gear steering. The crew subsequently reported the fault had cleared and everything was now clear, the captain advised they were now going to land on runway 31L. On short final the crew checked with tower whether the nose gear appeared normal, tower advised it did not appear normal but appeared to be rotated by 90 degrees. The aircraft landed safely on JFK's runway 31L about 45 minutes after aborting the first approach and vacated the runway, tower reported that upon touchdown the nose gear appeared to straighten out.

Flock of drones at Amsterdam

DRONES @ EHAM _EHAM-Twr-Main2-Apr-01-2016-0930Z.mp3

A KLM Embraer ERJ-190, flight KL-1904, was on final approach to runway 18C when the crew reported a drone to their right at about 1000 feet just passing about 100 feet underneath their aircraft. The aircraft continued for a safe landing on runway 18C.

A KLM Cityhopper Fokker 70, flight KL-1986, was on final approach to runway 18C when after tower advised of the previous aircraft reporting a drone at about 1000 feet the crew reported drone in sight, the drone was now on their left hand side at about 900 feet. The Fokker 70 continued for a safe landing on runway 18C.

Tower runway 18R checked the area with his binoculars but couldn't spot any drone.

An Easyjet Airbus A319-100, flight U2-7926, next on approach to runway 18C, was advised of the previous two arrivals sighting a drone to which the crew reported they were seeing three drones about 2.5nm out causing a perplexed reaction by the controller "You are seeing THREE drones?" The aircraft continued for a safe landing on runway 18C.

The next arrival for runway 18C, being advised of the three previous flights sighting drones, reported they could not see any drones joking this might be because of their bad eyes.

Rejected Take-Off in Amsterdam

DL71 RTO EHAM-Twr-Aug-07-2015-0700Z.mp3

A Delta Airlines Boeing 777-200, registration N707DN performing flight DL-71 from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Atlanta,GA (USA), was accelerating for takeoff from runway 24 when tower instructed to stop immediately after observing a landing aircraft on runway 18C going around due to an unstable approach. The Delta crew did not understand, tower repeated "Stop immediately" a second time, the crew read back "cleared for takeoff" and finally acknowledged a third "stop immediately". The crew rejected takeoff at high speed, slowed the aircraft safely, reported normal operations and vacated the runway. While taxiing towards the apron emergency services were called to check the brakes after tower observed smoke from the right hand brakes, when emergency services arrived there was still smoke from the right hand brakes, emergency services cooled the brakes. The aircraft subsequently taxied to the apron.

Regional jet close-call at Washington National

Republic E175, Republic E170, Chautauqua E135 at Washington on Jul 31st 2012, loss of separation

Brickyard_3329.mp3

A Republic Airlines Embraer ERJ-175, flight YX-3329 from Portland,ME to Washington National,DC (USA), was following the Potomac River Approach to runway 19 descending through about 1900 feet at 14:08L (18:08Z).

The aircraft had been vectored onto the river approach following a runway switch, runway 19 became active due to arriving weather after runway 01 had been active before.

A Chautauqua Airlines Embraer ERJ-135, flight RP-3071 from Washington National,DC to Columbus,OH (USA), departed runway 01 at 14:06L (18:06Z) and was climbing through about 3400 feet above the arriving aircraft at 14:08L.

A Republic Airlines Embraer ERJ-170, flight YX-3467 from Washington National,DC to Kansas City,MO (USA), also departed runway 01 at 14:07L (18:07Z) and was climbing through about 1500 feet at 14:08L in opposite direction to YX-3329.

Tower recognized the error after YX-3329 checked in, the controller asking puzzled "you are on the river?" YX-3329 was instructed to turn right onto heading 180 to avoid crossing the path of RP-3071 with further vectors provided to complete a 360 bringing the aircraft now in conflict with the departing YX-3467 prompting the tower controller to instruct the aircraft again turn onto a heading of 180 degrees, climb to 2000 feet and contact approach again, the stunned crew querying "what happened?"

The two departures were able to continue to their destinations for safe landings, YX-3329 positioned for another approach to Washington and landed safely, too.

Fuel emergency

UAL 544 Declares emergency Lands at Dyess AFB with 6200 lbs of fuel.mp3

A US Airways Airbus A319-100, registration N804AW performing flight US-544 from Phoenix,AZ to Dallas Ft. Worth,TX (USA) with 131 people on board, entered holdings at high altitude (above and at FL250) while descending towards Dallas due to a line of thunderstorms moving across the Dallas area. The crew decided to divert to Abilene,TX, however, Abilene's runway 17R was closed and airport management had imposed a weight limit on runway 17L which was exceeded by the aircraft. While waiting for a waiver by airport management, which had not been reached after 15 minutes, the crew opted to divert to nearby Dyess Air Force Base, located about 9nm west of Abilene, and landed safely on Dyess' runway 16 about 50 minutes past estimated arrival in Dallas Ft. Worth.

Dyess Tower told the crew that Abilene Legal Matter had declared a fuel emergency for the flight to faciliate the landing at Dyess Air Force Base. The crew reported they had 6,200 lbs of fuel, 60+ minutes total, remaining (approximate mandatory final fuel reserve 1,500-1,600 lbs).

Having gear issues

AAL4069-KORD-5-31-2012 Sllides off rwy.mp3

An American Eagle Embraer ERJ-145, registration N657AE performing flight MQ-4069 from Chicago O'Hare,IL to Tulsa,OK (USA) with 28 passengers and 3 crew, was climbing out of O'Hare's runway 09R when upon checking in with departure the crew reported they were having gear issues, probably were returning to O'Hare and needed the longest runway available. The crew levelled off at 5000 feet working relevant checklists on delay vectors, then declared emergency and was advised they could expect runway 10. The crew requested emergency services on stand by and advised they'd do an overweight landing. They had a gear disagree message, didn't know any of the actual gears' positions and would most likely be able to vacate the runway. Departure offered a flyby via runway 10 which was accepted by the crew. The crew requested tower to verify positions of all three gear struts during the low approach to runway 10. The aircraft climbed back to 4000 feet, tower reported all three gear struts appeared down. The aircraft landed on runway 10 about 20 minutes after the low approach and about 40 minutes after departure, but veered off the runway and came to a stop off the runway on paved surface of the runway end safety area of 14R at about 08:38L (13:38Z). No injuries occurred.

The Airline Pilot Guy

My weekly aviation podcasts are about “the view from my side of the cockpit door.” I’m here to express my opinion and perspective as a pilot in the commercial airline industry. I am not an aviation journalist. I am not a travel expert. I cannot tell you anything about frequent flyer programs. What can I talk about? Weather and how it pertains to my job, piloting, aviation safety (I graduated from the Accident Investigation and Flight Safety School at the University of Southern California), layovers, etc. I talk about news in the industry, travel-related stuff, incidents and accidents, and answer listener feedback. Just have a listen. I think you will enjoy the show!

Airline Captain, ACME Airlines
