FR5842 Chania to Eindhoven

Have just received a report that this flight is squawking 7700 and flying at 10,000 ft at 347 kts after dropping from 39,000 feet and apparently continuing its flight.


A/c now dropped to 3000 feet at 180 kts.


Cheers!


Clive

According to Flightradar24, the last signal was received (thats ADB-out) at 13:32 about 30 km SW of Koblenz in Germany at 3600 ft. If this is really true, this sounds no good. The area there is in the hills and 3600 ft is certainly well below any safe altitude. And there is no airport near this spot that has a runway long enough for a B737.
The aircraft obviously descended to 10000 ft in the Schwarzwald aera (SW Germany) before and flew a circle near Zurich airport (Switzerland) before continuing with various headings towards Frankfurt and then further west.
Hope for the best.

Hahn? Or Frankfurt as Ryanair calls it. That's SW of Koblenz.

Indeed, it might be Hahn EDFH. That would be good news because the runway is long enough.

Probably an insufficient number of people purchased enough cabin air for the flight.
