Red face June AAIB report out

The AAIB report for June is online, and an unscientific poll of the various news websites nominates a near miss at MAN between an SQ 744 and an EAF 1-11 as the one to scare the punters with this month. It sounds a bit close, but to me the report that is more worrying is the near miss over the Atlantic between the CMM 330 and the THY 340. Anyone got any thoughts? The link to the AAIB pages is http://www.aaib.detr.gov.uk/bulletin/jun01/jun01in.htm

Question

The EAF 1-11 curious pax talks of is a European BAC 1-11. Slightly different to an EF1-11 in that it has a few more seats and doesn't go as quick. You're also not very likely to find stewardesses in the back of an EF1-11, or does anyone know differently?

I noticed you edited the silly bit of your message Hwel, very sensible, if cowardly ( before anyone thinks I'm bonkers, Hwel previously had a slight confusion between the above aircraft)

Pass the 1261 on the left hand side

Sorry to burst your bubble, but EAF is the designator for European.

Sorry, not sarcasm or patronising in my post, just fact

Just read the one about the ATR losing a panel on takeoff. To be honest I was appalled at the reported lack of information given by the crew to ATC.

For goodness sake if bits are dropping off your aeroplane do you not think it pertinent information to be passing on to us?

Regardless of your assessment of the integrity of what's left of your own aeroplane. (which I accept you are in a much better position to judge than ATC), at least spare a thought for the possibility that the bits you have lost may be a severe FOD hazard to others.

Even worse seems to be the Channex F27 at STN.

25ft AGL without the gear down AND short of the runway seems a little to extreme to me!

Wow,ground fine in the air!The manual always warned "DO NOT SELECT GROUND FINE IN THE AIR"- I believe.
I knew it possible, not probable.

If it can happen, it will.

Flap40,

If the gear had still been down it would have been a crash not an incident!
