DCP-A380 very hard landing!


heard this rumor that the Local DCP-A380 landed the big Lady so excellently that the subsequent Crew couldn't raise the LG, Fuel jettisoned and returned.

Nothing was in the Techlog since he felt it was a "smooth touchdown". ☠️ For weeks now, ever since it came out the Tosser(M.al-Sw.) who loves to hand out Warnings is on sickleave.

Looks like it might have been his last smooth landing, in EK.
Any confirmations on that?

Doesn't matter, so long as you have 2000 hours EK command, you'll be fine!

Not an issue to use last exit if runway is short.

How is it known that the gear would not retract because of a hard landing previously?

Because the struts were stuck half way through the wing root? 👍

Nothing will happen to him just like nothing happened to the CP 380 years ago when he managed to get the Big Bird in Alpha Floor at 300ft AGL.
He did write the incident up though, "aircraft misbehaving."
What a joke this airline has become. I don't want to be on the airplane or anywhere near for the next incident to come.

Same happened with the CP of another big fleet on the first flight (!) to XXX.
No entry, but the same aircraft had a tire failure on the over-next T/O wich resulted in an ugly and costly abortion.

Nooooooo, no connection whatsoever.

Some animals are more equal .....

Seems all the Prayers in the flightdeck during flights does not support our Locals for their landings.
The planing and safe outcome of their landings is a INSHALLA thing.
Seems like Allahs Roster is massively overworked. 😉

Not a rumor, the guy is on leave until further investigations...it all happened a few days after the 777 accident. Keep discovering. Some peoples are immune others not, watch out guys and have a look to the skipper before letting your family jumping on board.

He better send himself an email about being SK that long...

History has always shown that the risk of an aircraft incident increases exponentially as office/costa time increases...they just don't get the requisite exposure to the "theater of operations" as the talking horse so smartly stated!

The palm I agree, I have been looking at the flight crew before putting my family on any EK flight for last few years now. When I joined many moons ago this never ever crossed my mind...

You ungrateful pilots. Don't you understand how much time these office dwellers have to spend sending out letters explaining that you should not get sick, or reminding of the consequences of not filing ASR's. It's a full time job. To think they should find the time to also write to themselves is unbelievable. You have been given a few hours away from work each month. Use this time to help them out, and copy paste the letters you have received back to them. It's good for them, and good for the company.

Don,

At a European airfield a year or 3 ago, the other DCP at that time was forced to backfile an ASR he "forgot" to file.

The aircraft landed, "assumed" to be hard, and the engineer was consulted while a delay was evident.

The outgoing Captain queried the delay to boarding the aircraft. When finding out the reason for the delay, the outgoing Captain (TRE) filed an ASR for there not being an ASR for the "assumed" heavy landing previously!

Why should one file an ASR to oneself if DCP as it seems to be the case when they were there when it happened!

Exactly Jack. And they do seem to be on site for many incidents. just not enough hours in the day to report themselves.
