    ncident: Ural Airlines A321 near Vienna on Apr 17th 2010, fuel emergency

    An Ural Airlines Airbus A321-200, registration VQ-BDA performing flight U6-3511 from Moscow Domodedovo (Russia) to Rimini (Italy), attempted to fly below the ash clouds at FL180 all the way from Russia to Italy. On their way a few miles west of Krakow (Poland) the airplane was forced to descend to 9500 feet. When the airplane was about 60nm southwest of Vienna (Austria) and about 30nm northeast of Graz (Austria), the crew reported being low on fuel and diverted to Vienna, where the airplane landed safely about 30 minutes later.

    Vienna airport reported, the airplane was on its way from Moscow to Rome, when the crew reported being low on fuel without declaring emergency. The airport, which remained open despite the closure of the air space for all IFR traffic, accomodated the aircraft. The airplane is currently being examined, the crew reported no abnormalities and no malfunctions despite flying almost all the way in air space closed for IFR traffic due to the ash clouds (see: Icelandic volcano disrupts aviation in almost all of Europe.

    Austrian Airlines, based at Vienna Schwechat Airport, as well as FlyNiki now demand a close examination of the Airbus A321-200 for any contaminations in the engines and insists on measurements of the density of ashes in the atmosphere stating, that mathematical models for computing danger from ashes in the atmosphere are insufficient.
