A TAP Air Portugal Airbus A320-200, registration CS-TNK performing flight TP-1900 from Faro to Lisbon (Portugal), was climbing out of Faro's runway 28 when the crew levelled off at 3000 feet reporting a bird strike and returned to Faro for a safe landing on runway 28 about 12 minutes after departure.

The flight was cancelled.

An Easyjet Airbus A319-100, registration G-EZDX performing flight U2-15 from London Luton,EN to Edinburgh,SC (UK) with 156 people on board, was climbing out of Luton's runway 26 when the aircraft flew through a flock of birds and ingested a number of birds into an engine (CFM56). The aircraft levelled off at FL050 and returned to Luton for a safe landing on runway 26 about 17 minutes after departure.

Incident: Etihad A346 near Sofia on Aug 19th 2012, loss of cabin pressure



An Etihad Airbus A340-600, registration A6-EHE performing flight EY-38 from Paris Charles de Gaulle (France) to Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) with 250 people on board, was enroute at FL390 about 80nm east of Sofia (Bulgaria) when the crew initiated an emergency descent to FL120 reached FL120 7 minutes later (average rate of descent 3800 fpm). The crew subsequently turned south and diverted to Istanbul's Ataturk Airport, located 130nm south of their position, for a safe landing on runway 35R about 50 minutes after leaving FL390.

The passengers were taken to hotels over night.

The next day's planned rotation EY-97/EY-96 to Istanbul was upgraded to an Airbus A340-500 registration A6-EHA to take the passengers of EY-38 to Abu Dhabi. The passengers from Paris reached Abu Dhabi with a delay of 13 hours.

The incident aircraft was able to return to Abu Dhabi departing Istanbul about 14 hours after landing and reached FL410 during the positioning flight.

Airbus Updates No.771


Incident: Aeroflot A333 over Atlantic on Aug 16th 2012, bomb hoax


An Aeroflot Airbus A330-300, registration VQ-BPI performing flight SU-103 (dep Aug 15th) from New York JFK,NY (USA) to Moscow Sheremetyevo (Russia) with 236 people on board, was enroute over the Atlantic when American law enforcement received an anonymous message indicating five suitcases on board of the aircraft would carry explosives set to detonate upon arrival in Moscow. The crew was informed about that message and decided to divert to Keflavik (Iceland) where the aircraft landed safely on runway 20 about 2 hours after the crew declared emergency.

The aircraft, luggage and passengers were searched, no explosives were found. The aircraft was released to continue the flight, however, due to crew duty time limitations did not continue the journey. A replacement Airbus A330-300 registration VQ-BPY was dispatched to Kelfavik and reached Moscow on Aug 17th at about 03:38L with a delay of 15:13 hours.

On Aug 19th Rosaviatsia (Russia's Civil Aviation Authority) said New York Police received an anonymous phone call stating the aircraft VQ-BPI could possibly explode during flight SU-103 from New York to Moscow. At the time of the phone call the aircraft was already two hours into the flight. Upon being informed about the threat the crew decided to divert to Keflavik, where the aircraft and luggage was searched with no traces of explosives detected. Due to crew duty time limitations and required crew rest a replacement aircraft VQ-BPY was dispatched to Keflavik and reached Moscow as flight SU-2299 with a delay of 15:13 hours. The incident aircraft reached Moscow about 4 hours after VQ-BPY.

A second bomb threat is being reported in Russia that was phoned in to Russian Authorities before Polet flight VQ-751 was able to depart Moscow Domodedovo towards Voronezh (Russia).
