Fausse alert sur un B747-400 de la BA !

Lien :
Soucis d'inverseurs de poussée sur un avion de British Airw.
Johannesburg (Afrique du Sud) - Un avion de la compagnie aérienne britannique British Airways a été contraint de faire demi-tour et de se reposer en urgence sur l'aéroport international de Johannesburg (Afrique du Sud) après que les pilotes aient été alertés que deux inverseurs de poussée soient restés déverrouillés.
Mais, .... read on !
L'avion, un Boeing 747-400, vol BA56, qui devait effectuer la liaison entre l'aéroport international OR Tambo de Johannesburg et l'aéroport international Heathrow de Londres (Royaume-Uni) avec un nombre de passagers qui n'a pas été indiqué, avait décollé depuis moins d'une demi-heure lorsque les pilotes ont été avertis que deux des inverseurs de poussée des réacteurs n'étaient pas verrouillés. Le commandant de bord a alors pris la décision de faire demi-tour et de se reposer.

L'avion a vidangé une partie de son carburant afin de se poser plus léger et a atterri une heure et demi après son décollage sans autre incident. Il n'y a pas eu de blessés. Une rapide inspection des techniciens de la compagnie a permis de découvrir que les inverseurs fonctionnaient parfaitement et que le problème se trouvaient sur les indicateurs qui renvoyaient une information fausse. Le vol a finalement été annulé.
Ce genre de fausse alerte doit coûter, ... tout de même..... cher !

Bonjour Sevrien,

Sur ce sujet j'ai ça

British Airways 747-400 and that Johannesburg take-off
By Kieran Daly on May 14, 2009 9:57 AM |

Unfortunately I'm travelling and not in a position to check this out properly, but what appears to be a pretty authoritative account of some first-rate aviating by a BA 747-400 crew on 11 May has now turned up. Reports of this Johannesburg incident have been popping up over the last 48 hours, getting increasingly lurid and decreasingly accurate.

But I think this looks about right. In short, a heavy 744 out of hot 'n' high Johannesburg suffers slat retraction on rotation due to spurious double thrust-reserver reverser unlock warnings. Result is a very non-spurious stick-shaker at 12ft and no slats until 160ft. Remember, while this crew was flying the aircraft they had good reason to believe they might be dealing with a double thrust-reserver reverser deployment, in which case it's unlikely they'd still be around to tell the tale.

Au delà de la fausse alerte.. il y a le timing de la fausse alerte...

Bien évidemment tout ceci reste à confirmer... Wink

Bonne fin de journée

Une grosse frayeur pour le vol BA 56, Johanesbourg Heathrow en 747 !

Et le sang froid de l'équipage

Du Daily Mail :

Hundreds of passengers narrowly avoided disaster when their plane nearly crashed after taking off.

The British Airways plane shook violently and did not rise more than 30ft above the ground as it set off from Johannesburg to London.

The pilot has been praised for his quick actions in keeping the Boeing 747 in the air, saving the
lives of the 256 passengers on board.

Travelling at 200mph, he dumped enough fuel for the aircraft to eventually gain height, before returning it to the airport.

It is believed that a technical fault caused the plane to go into landing mode so that the flaps that normally make it rise did not work.

An investigation is under way as to how the jet came so close to crashing.

A BA spokesman said: 'As a precaution BA56 Johannesburg to Heathrow flight on Monday May 11 returned to the airport shortly after take-off due to a suspected technical problem.

'The Boeing 747 aircraft with 256 passengers on board landed safely and the customers disembarked as normal into the airport.

'We are cooperating fully with the South African aviation safety authority's investigation into the

Referring to the pilot's quick actions, he added: 'Our crews are trained extensively to deal with all

Bonjour à tous
L'analyse de cet incident grave a été rendue publique.

South Africa's Civil Aviation Authority has praised the airmanship of British Airways Boeing 747-400 pilots who battled to prevent a low-altitude stall after the leading-edge slats unexpectedly retracted during lift-off from Johannesburg.
At 167kt on the take-off roll, fractionally below rotation speed, all the leading-edge slats inboard of the engines on each side automatically retracted, after receiving a spurious indication of thrust-reverser activation.
As the aircraft tried to climb out from Tambo International Airport, known for its 'hot and high' environment, the jet lost a "significant amount of lift", says the CAA, and the stick-shaker immediately engaged, warning of an approaching stall.
Instead of following the typical climb profile, the first officer - whose aerobatic experience meant he was familiar with buffet - controlled the aircraft through the stall warning and buffeting by executing a shallower climb, while the commander supported the manoeuvre by calling out heights above ground.
The slats stayed retracted for a total of 23s. They started to redeploy 7s after the jet became airborne - as the undercarriage was retracting, at a height of 56ft - and were fully extended 9s later. The stick-shaker, which had activated intermittently over a 15s interval, stopped as the airspeed rose to 186kt.
In its inquiry report into the 11 May 2009 incident, the CAA says the crew had "no notion" that the slats had retracted before rotation. There is no separate indication in the cockpit for leading-edge slat position.
"The flying crew should be commended for the professional way that they controlled the aircraft during a critical stage during take-off," it adds. "During [the incident] the flight-deck crew had no indication or understanding of what had caused the lack in performance of the aircraft."
After stabilising the 747's climb, the crew declared to air traffic control that they were experiencing problems with two engines and would be returning to the airport. The aircraft, which had been bound for London Heathrow with 265 passengers and 18 crew members, landed safely.
Investigators have concluded that, during the take-off roll, the slats retracted - as designed - in response to signals indicating deployment of thrust reversers on the two inboard Rolls-Royce RB211 engines. The right-hand reverser signal was triggered at 125kt and the left-hand at 160kt.
But neither reverser had been activated, and British Airways engineers examined the aircraft (G-BYGA) to trace the source of the false signals. The inquiry concluded that, although the reversers were stowed, their translating cowls were nevertheless seated relatively far rearwards.
As the 747's engines wound up to high power, and the aircraft accelerated, sensors monitoring the cowl positions transmitted incorrect 'reverser' signals. The slats retracted because of a logic process designed to prevent them being struck by efflux air from activated reversers.
Boeing subsequently developed a safety bulletin for Rolls-Royce-powered 747-400s to disable this reverser-based automated stowing.

Fausse alerte pour potentiellement un grosse cata.

Ce que je retiens, c'est qu'encore une bois chez BA, l'équipage a sauvé la baraque ! Rassurant !

Bonne lecture
