Biman A310 Turnback LHR

Hi, Ayone know why the Biman A310 turned back on Wednesday?(29th)

It had been on the ground the day before with an engine problem I think. I saw it take off but it never retracted its gear. Later saw it return with fire engines in attendance. Any info?

Coop & Bear?

Thanx for the info. You think with all that down time they could have at least give it a wash! Who does the engineering for Biman at LHR?

Suppose the return to LHR is one of the subjects in this article.

Must be REALLY bad there...



Edit: Have just been corrected by the friend (who also brought the article to my attention) that it was written beginning August. So also then a 310 stuck @ LHR for more than a day..
