Perhaps this ones been done before, but I believe this is the system that journalists use for any flying related incident - http://radans.net/jens/planestory.html
...and the result of that is this -

Flight Goes Horribly Wrong

Adelaide passengers told of their scared panicked dread aboard a Foreign bound Qantas flight which was advised it was in the best interests of the plane to return to Adelaide yesterday due to running out of Everybody Loves Raymond episodes.

Some passengers were vexed that the 943 passengers were told few details of the tragedy.

They said the plane 'Seemed normal, but everyone knew it was posessed by the Devil' before turning around.

As a precaution, fire trucks were on standby when the Boeing 340 landed.

Passenger Bruce Goatman last night was still recovering from the ordeal.

'It's a good thing I was wearing the brown underwear', the passenger said.

I was working that night and the captain did declare "mayday" with atc, but decided to burn off fuel before landing...I have seen this a few times in SFB on the 747 classics. Also may I ad that the rumor is that the 757 that is still here will remain here until sometime around March

Also may I ad that the rumor is that the 757 that is still here will remain here until sometime around March.
That ties in with my original info of the a/c being parked up somewhere from early Jan until Mar. However, due to maintenance issues with the B736 fleet I understood that the plan may have been to use the 757 as back-up a/c. Can anyone now confirm that due to the current problems with this a/c, GSM are now looking at ways to dispose of the a/c completely?

If GSM are to dispose of that a/c they wouldn't have an aircraft to operate the Toronto Hamilton services from the uk during the summer ! I take it then GSM are using there 737-800 planes on the orlando services for now seen as how all there 767's are off on lease !

So does anyone know what the situation is with GSM pulling the 767 they leased to Santa Barbara back to Sanford to do the SFB-GLA flight yesterday?.

GSM are claiming they are trying to source a replacement 757 for the the A/C currently in Sanford as they are sick of it falling over and want to replace it but nothing is confirmed. They are also doing a voluntary retraction of ETOPS until the situation is resolved.

Anyone got more info????????
