    Smoke on plane headed for UAE delays flight from India

    Published Sunday, September 11, 2011
    Emirates Airlines in Dubai said it will not be able to comment on an incident of smoke reported to have caused the delay of its flight to Dubai from Kolkata airport yesterday morning.
    According to a report by Times of India the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport was put on alert after ground staff saw smoke coming out of the EK0571. Fire tenders were rushed to the parking bay and the 13-member crew were asked to disembark from the flight.
    Engineers later found a crack in the lubricant chamber of the plane's auxiliary power unit had caused a leak and the smoke, the report added. The flight scheduled to depart at 9.30 am finally took off with 209 passengers at around 11am.

    LOT6 is heading back to WAW @ FL100, sounds like pressurization problems.

    It is keeping its speed down to 350 MPH.

    Alaska Airlines faces $590,000 fine for wiring problem

    The Federal Aviation Administration proposed Friday a $590,000 fine against Alaska Airlines for allegedly operating a passenger jet on more than 2,000 flights under unsafe conditions.
    The federal agency charges that the airline flew a 737-400 jet for about 18 months with an improperly installed hose clamp above the flight deck. Chafing between the clamp and adjacent wires sparked a fire while the plane was parked in Anchorage International Airport in January 2010, the FAA said.
    The FAA said the wiring on the plane was last inspected in 2008 but maintenance crews did not fix the hose clamp, despite warnings in the plane's maintenance manual. An investigation by the airline found the same clamp problem on nine other jets.
