  1. Engine trouble caused aircraft forced landing copyrightAAIB The aircraft hit a furrow in a field and was flipped upside down A microlight aircraft landed upside down in a field after a "probable" fuel problem caused its engine to stall, a report found. The Flight Design CTSW was five nautical miles from Sywell Aerodrome in Northamptonshire when the pilot made a forced landing, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch report said. The landing gear collapsed when the plane hit a furrow, flipping the craft. The two pilots were not hurt but the plane was damaged beyond repair. The accident happened on 15 September as the pilot and passenger - another qualified pilot - were returning to the airfield after a short flight. The aircraft was returning to Sywell Aerodrome after flying over Deenethorpe Airfield and Market Harborough The report stated the engine "coughed" before stopping, forcing the pilot to choose a suitable field in order to land. However, he had no choice but to make a downwind landing, meaning "the touchdown was at a higher groundspeed than the pilot would have liked". "The pilot was beginning to apply the brakes gently to avoid locking the wheels when the nose dropped suddenly and the aircraft lurched forward, coming to rest upside down." the report said. The AAIB said the "cause of the engine failure could not be positively determined". The report concluded "the failure was probably due to a fuel supply issue".

  4. Emergency landing as United Airlines plane engine cover falls off mid-flight NBN Editorial Team February 14, 2018 Comments Offon Emergency landing as United Airlines plane engine cover falls off mid-flight News Headlines Dramatic footage has emerged of the moment passengers aboard a United Airlines flight to Hawaii were told to prepare for an emergency landing after an engine cover fell off. Flight 1175 from California was able to touch down safely in Honolulu on Tuesday afternoon, but only after the pilots sent out a distress call for the emergency services to be ready to meet it on the ground. Those on-board had heard a “loud bang” around 35 minutes before the Boeing 777-222 was due to land, which turned out to be the sound of an engine cover coming off. Image:The engine cover came off with a good portion of the flight still to go. Pic: Mariah Amerine “There was a loud bang and then the plane really started shaking,” passenger Allison Sudiacal told Hawaii News Now. “There was a loud boom and then it was like rattling, and the plane was kind of shaking like boom, boom, boom. “They (the pilots) let us know that we had to brace for impact in case there was a rough landing. It was scary. But they did a really good job.” Image:The plane on the runway after landing. Pic: Peter Lemme Another passenger, Maria Falaschi, who posted images on Twitter showing the engine with its exterior cover missing, described the journey as “the scariest flight of my life”. Video uploaded to social media by other passengers shows the engine shaking back and forth, with pieces of the displaced cover flapping in the wind. Google engineer Erik Haddad appeared to remain calm throughout, despite having the perfect view of the fault. “That looks bad, plane and simple,” he quipped on Twitter, before adding: “I don’t see anything about this in the manual.” The incident is being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). United Airlines said in a statement: “United flight 1175 travelling to Honolulu from San Francisco landed safely after the pilots called for an emergency landing because of an issue with the #2 engine. “Our pilots followed all necessary protocols to safely land the aircraft. The aircraft taxied to the gate and passengers deplaned normally. “United is fully cooperating with the NTSB and FAA investigation of the event SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : http://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-us-canada-43056912/engine-drama-sparks-mid-air-emergency
