    I was thinking the altitude of FR225 for RWY28 was wrong!

    Why's 34 in use?

    DAA decided to have a stroll on 28. :D ''Walking inspection"

    The Russians have sent some bombers again did they come near Ireland I wonder?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,355 ✭✭✭jimbis


    From what I've read they were intercepted somewhere off the Northwest coast of Ireland.

    I'd guess that he's trying to stay out of the local jetstream, either because of the speed of the adverse winds, or to avoid turbulence,

    This map gives some current details

    He's been off doing his 747 type rating for this tour. 12 months ago he was battling cancer!

    Stobart100P just departed DUB for ORK, wonder is it replacing something in ORK or positioning for an extra flight maybe? EI-REI, ATR 72-200


    EDIT: must be an FR24 glitch with the destination, its eastbound and climbing, not headed for ORK anyway.

    Stobart have been training lately from what I've seen.

    P at the end of the callsign means positioning
    T means training

    Not sure if anyone here follows Guido Warnecke, corporate pilot who also does ferry flights, he has lots of very interesting and informative videos on youtube of his flights as captain of a Citation and a King Air.

    Anyway, he's currently enroute from Goose Bay (CYYR) to Jersey (EGJJ) in a Piper Seneca. 13hr flight, should be transitting the Shannon zone in the next two hours or so. Not coming up on FR24 unfortunately. Reg is N4447X

    I hope that he isnt employed by Robert Weaver :) Thanks for the youtube pointer.

    Ah, the infamous Mr. Weaver.....

    Guido Warnecke is contracted by Alpha2Bravo aircraft logistics. Huge credit due to him, a very capable operator, he covers most of the globe in anything ranging from single engine pistons, turboprops, to corporate jets. Most of the videos on YouTube are over a year old with the exception of the ferry flight of a Mooney recently, but more videos coming soon I believe...

    EI105 just airborne from DUB to JFK, returning to DUB, i didnt hear the reason.

    Gear wouldn't retract


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,575 ✭✭✭deaddonkey15


    Just looking at the flight path of EI105 on return to DUB, I presume that EI 330's can dump fuel?


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,168 ✭✭✭✭smurfjed

    Depends on if the airline purchased the option, alternatively I'm sure that it can do an overweight landing.

    Do you know if Aer Lingus purchased that option?

    May not have been necessary, depending on the load and the fuel on board, JFK is not a long flight in the capability of the 330, so it probably wasn't that heavy in the scale of things.

    That flight path looks more like ATC separation to get other traffic down, maybe clear the holding point, and to get following traffic far enough back to allow things like runway inspection (R15 did a pass along the runway after the 105 landed).

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

    EI 330's do not have jettison capabilities.

    That's what I thought. It didn't look like a path taken with the intention of burning fuel. It must have been fairly close to it's max landing weight if a runway inspection was carried out afterwards?


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,173 ✭✭✭✭JCX BXC

    Wouldn't be so sure, considering the nature of the incident was actually due to a fault with the landing gear.

    Seen it reported on facebook. These reports get more stupid by the day.

    "Flight EI-105 had been in contact with Air Traffic controllers at(?) Dublin"

    You'd hope that'd be the case wouldn't you.

    The comments are even worse
    "Reassuring to know they return safely" - Well it's not like there was a crash imminent.
    "Well done pilots and crew who know their stuff" - You'd hope they do
    "This is why I always fly Aer Lingus, they know their stuff" - No comment

    I am guessing, with no inside information to base this on, gear retract failure due to hydraulic problems, the most likely a leak on the "up" mechanism, so put the rest of the gear down again to be sure it's really down and locked, land it, and then inspect the runway to make sure that it's not been contaminated by leaking hydraulic fluid.

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