    FR8142, FR6643 and FR1742 all diverting to SNN


  • Registered Users Posts: 581 ✭✭✭pepe the prawn


    getting messy in Shannon now, one item of priority traffic inbound to shannon in 18 minutes, one ryanair now requesting a diversion to Dublin. Priority traffic is 100 miles west of shannon, estimated holding time of at least ten minutes for both ryanairs. Priority traffic is UAL102, with a pan-pan.

    This is the problem I mentioned on another thread. The best laid plan for diverting at the planning stage can get thrown into disarray when there are other diversions.

    whats's the cockpit environment like in a case like this? constant fuel/time monitoring I presume with a hint of planning for the next diversion well in advance of actually making the decision to divert to the second alternate?

    Any updates on UAL102? Tech? Smoke? Seems to be safely on the ground anyway t.g.

    PLANE DIVERTS IN SHANNON FOLLOWING ENGINE FAILURE

    12 February, 2016 - 13:12 General

    A plane was forced to make an emergency landing at Shannon Airport this afternoon due to an engine failure.

    Four units from the Shannon Fire Brigade and two units from Ennis were dispatched to the incident, which happened just after 12.00.

    The United Airlines plane which was travelling from Houston to Munich with 111 passengers and crew on board has now landed safely.

    It's the second emergency landing at the airport in as many days.

    Yesterday a Royal Jordanian flight was en route from Chicago to Amman when it was forced to land at Shannon airport due to a medical emergency.

    The plane was met by ambulance and medical staff on arrival at the airport.

    A Jordanian national in his sixties, was pronounced dead a short time later and his body was transferred to University Hospital Limerick for a post-mortem examination.

    The AV Herald report of this diversion makes interesting reading, (My bold)
    A United Boeing 767-400, registration N76055 performing flight UA-102 from Houston Intercontinental,TX (USA) to Munich (Germany) with 98 passengers and 13 crew, was enroute at FL370 about 160nm west of Shannon (Ireland) when the crew declared PAN reporting an engine (CF6) problem and decided to divert to Shannon (Ireland) advising the engine had been shut down. On approach ATC queried the crew to check their altitude reminding them of QNH 992 and advising the crew their aircraft was at 2000 feet, already below cleared altitude (about 15nm before touchdown), then followed up with the instruction "Stop descent!" The aircraft subsequently climbed by about 1500 feet and landed safely on Shannon's runway 06 about 30 minutes after leaving FL370. Fire crews and engineers attended to the left hand engine.

    Shore, if it was easy, everybody would be doin it.😁

    I wonder was there an error in setting the altimeter. In the USA aircraft use inches of mercury rather than hPa and 29.92 inches corresponds to 1013.2 hPa, which is the standard altimeter setting. It's possible that "QNH 992" was interpreted as 29.92in.

    PS I see the discussion on AvHerald is tending to this theory also.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,197 ✭✭✭arubex


    Isn't that why ATCOs outside the USA always suffix values < 1000 with 'hectopascals' when announcing altitudes? I vaguely recall an incident in the 1990s that prompted this.

    The ATIS for SNN used to have an additional bit added at the end to highlight to crews that altitude was based on hectopascals. This was due to an American crew making an early turn over Shannon town quite a bit lower than expected.

    At DUB a few minutes ago an aircraft had problems and had to hold short B7 delaying a departing EIN, then EIN4324 had a tech problem at E7, blocking that too!


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,150 ✭✭✭✭JCX BXC


    Very Loud 747 just flew over the house here in West Clare, heard it over the TV! On approach to SNN now from JFK with an engine for the diverted United.

    I see that now, but there also seem to be other aircraft holding over the Irish Sea.

    He's holding to go through checklists I presume, it just happens that they were already holding due to a runway change.

    Looks ok visually though gear down earlier than usual.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,812 ✭✭✭billie1b


    They were holding to complete check lists and burn off some fuel, they were also a heavy lander, aircraft is AOG now and they are just finished boarding the new aircraft

    Was there an engine ingestion and shutdown?

    What flies at 17000 ft around here? Geese?

    I see lots of geese activity around North Dublin and often wonder about aircraft issues.

    Don't know the type but it was hit with a minimum of 3 birds/geese or whichever
