DC air traffic disrupted after American Airlines flight stalls near runway

נשלח לפני
 
Emergency crews at Ronald Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C. are responding to a jet that has been stopped in the middle of the airport's main runway. The jet sat on the runway for about 10 minutes before fire and rescue crews arrived, according to a video taken of the plane and posted to social media. (www.foxnews.com) עוד...

Does anyone proof their work anymore? Breaking=The act of breaking something

Braking: Using a device to stop something or reducing the speed of an object

Braking/breaking, hangar/hanger, yoke/yolk ... Some people, especially native english speakers, don't really care much about their language :D

Is this considered Braking News?

Not the first time I have seen BREAKING=the act of applying the brakes (the breaks?) . Even on YouTube. Doesn't bother me any more.

your wright. I mean, you're right.

This one will prove interesting... 2 Totally separate breaking systems and still no brakes and basically had to use the parking brake to stop as it sounds looking up All 4! I would love to see the FDR and better yet listen to the CVR to see what really happened. 2 separate Hydraulic systems for brakes and still could not stop it... Something is really wrong here... Someone goofed somewhere!

Who handles mx for Brickyard ? There must be common points between the separate E75 braking systems, I imagine the failure might have occurred at one of these. However one question would be : Did the tires blow on touchdown or in response to crew action to remedy the main brake failure ? If tires blew first then debris may have disabled both hydraulic systems - look at what tire debris did to AF4590.

Brickyard??? As for the Braking system the Inboard and Outboard systems are driven off of different systems, but they did not have a flight control issue. The Tires did not blow on Touch down. Captain said that the Brakes did not activate and had to activate the Emergency Brakes, so some how they got Hyd Pressure to the brakes as that would be the only way to activate them, and when they did, they completely locked up and blew all 4 of them... Personally, I am thinking something got goofed up in the Anti Skid system... I would not be surprised to see an AD come out over this incident assuming the crews did mess up something on landing and it does not sound like they did.

Frankly, after the 'editorial' comments here, I haven't even read the "news" article...

"Emergency" brakes normally bypass the anti-skid system and they usually work off stored hydraulic pressure. They are often a 'one-shot' deal; apply them gradually and don't try to modulate the deceleration. You must be "gentle" when applying them.

Another possibility is that the "Emergency" brakes they applied were actually the "Parking" brake, which can be applied even if the aircraft is moving. Applying the parking brake will generally 'lock' the wheels. Period. If they are applied while the aircraft is moving, the best you get will be some flat spots on the tires. If you are moving at a higher speed (Is that the end of the runway?!), you can easily blow several tires.

Hi Sparky, I thought Brickyard was the callsign for AA's Embraers. I was just wondering who did their maintenance.

Thanks for the explanation of the possible problems with this braking system. In a non-aviation case years ago I had a problem when an "anti-skid" module on a 1990s Chevy pick up (that had just come out of the shop from a brake job) decided not to activate any of the brakes on a downhill highway stretch at 60 plus. Luckily there was then an uphill stretch which, with the parking brake, allowed the truck to stop.

Brickyard is Republic Airlines call sign. Nothing to do with AA

It's not all that relevant to the actual story, but you're kind of both right!

"American Eagle flight 4965, operated by Republic Airways, with service from Memphis to Reagan National Airport experienced a mechanical issue upon landing at DCA..."

Makes sense since Republic is based out of Indianapolis

Sparkie, I’ve flown many planes over the years and not one had a separate emergency brake system, so how exactly did they apply the emergency brakes?

… flight stalls on runway?

whats with the garbage topic title. Man i hate media writing about aviation without having a clue about it. Did he stall near the runway, slam into the ground hard and thats what blew the tires out?

That’s a more coherent story that involves breakage.

Not to nitpick, but this was a Republic Airways flight, not American Airlines.

My favorite part.

"We had to use emergency breaking to get the airplane to stop. We were, we were not gonna stop."

OH I GET IT NOW. They had to break the tires in order to get the plane to stop. Oh did they mean "Braking"?

Ladies and gentlemen, our national media.

Flight stalls near runway? Great headline.

It was going to land and go to the gate unbroken, we can't allow that as it will raise expectations for the next flight, so we had to use emergency breaking. Thankfully the aircraft finally broke.

Had an incident once @ KILG where main struts were serviced when A/C was loaded prior to departure. On landing, much lighter of course, WOW limit switches did not close, no T/Rs or brakes (or breaks depending on your college), had to use emergency brake system to stop. Can't wait to see how this shakes out.

And from across the Pond, on a slow Friday afternoon.

Reading through the "breaking/break" (wrong) and braking/braked/stopped discussion, it was a joy to see the English language at work, followed by an "unbroken" string of breaking jokes.

So, back to the headline. How far from the runway did the 'plane stall? one foot above? one hundred feet above. Makes you wonder what constitutes a "near miss"..

Are we discussing, slowing something down, tearing something up or dancing? I'm confused!
Oh and I used 100 proof for this post!
