US Aviation Officials Think A Bird Strike Was Factor In Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737MAX Crash

US aviation officials think a bird strike was factor in Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737MAX crash

U.S. aviation officials believe a bird strike may have led to the deadly crash of an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max in March, according to a person familiar with the matter. Crash investigators have indicated that bad sensor data triggered an anti-stall system aboard the Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max that went down shortly after takeoff, a similar scenario to a crash of the same type of plane in Indonesia in October. The system automatically pushes the nose of the plane down if it perceives the aircraft is in a stall, the normal way to recover from such a position. That can be catastrophic if the plane is not in a stall, however. Pilots in the two crashes were battling the system, known as MCAS, that repeatedly pushed the nose of their planes downward. U.S. aviation officials think a bird strike is the likely culprit in what led to erroneous sensor data fed to the anti-stall system in the Ethiopian crash, the person said. Ethiopian Airlines has said, however, that a preliminary crash investigation report showed “no evidence of any foreign object damage” such as a bird strike, to the sensor. Source

"You're Gonna Die Up There" ANA Boeing 767 Made An Emergency Landing After Flames Shoot Out From Right Engine

An All Nippon Airways plane from western Japan bound for Tokyo’s Haneda Airport had to turn back to Fukuoka Airport for an emergency landing. Fukuoka Airport officials say crew on board the Boeing 767 reported engine trouble shortly after 9:50 a.m. Thursday Japan time. The aircraft made an emergency landing at 10:15 a.m. It then moved over the runway on its own power and stopped on the taxiway. Fire engines stood by and the runway was closed for about half an hour. Transport ministry officials say no injuries have been reported among the 270 passengers and eight crew members on board. All Nippon Airways says the aircraft’s cockpit indicators showed a temperature surge in the right engine, as the plane was ascending after takeoff. The pilots shut down the engine and headed back to Fukuoka.
