נשלח לפני
 
VICTORVILLE (CBSLA) — Southwest Airlines, the world’s largest operator of the Boeing 737 MAX, is now sending their fleet to storage at the Southern California Logistics Airport in Victorville. They’ll be parked there until they get the green light to go back into service. The planes were grounded after two deadly crashes in six months. (losangeles.cbslocal.com) עוד...

Let’s get these planes corrected and back in the air. I’ll volunteer to be a passenger.

Something is wrong with the photo of those Southwest jets sitting there. Looks like an image from a video game. Maybe it's just me.

Well, they gotta put them somewhere until they are ready to go again...

How do they move the planes if they're grounded? Maybe that's not the right word to use? I haven't read the official orders, so assume it's a restriction against passenger service... surely they're not towing them... :D

They are allowed to use the aircraft for ferrying and other operations as permitted by the AD.

(CNN)A Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft declared an emergency landing Tuesday in Florida after experiencing a reported engine problem, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

No passengers were aboard Southwest Airlines Flight 8701, which was being ferried from Orlando International Airport to Victorville, California, for short-term storage, the airline said.

SWA8701 A MAX flight headed to Victorville this afternoon had to return to Orlando where it made an emergency landing! According to the flight track the flight lasted only 11 minutes and only reached an altitude of 2000 ft which could suggest a problem with MCAS - whatever the problem it was obviously very urgent that they get back on the ground https://flightaware.com/live/flight/SWA8701

Not so fast. This is to be reported as a engine issue and or failure. Not due to the MCAS system.

A follow up on my previous comment. The southwest pilots have stated that this was a right engine failure on there aircraft. Scroll down the airlive website link and you can listen to the audio.

ADX, can you elaborate on your source that the LUV jets are not at Victorville airport as reported? Can you explain why the local CBS station would report they are stored at Victorville if not true?

Van Nuys is the correct spelling for the airport you refer to in your squawk, the airport that I made my first solo flight. Thank you SanVal Aviation!

ATTM, it sure looks like SWA is moving their B38Ms at KVCV: https://flightaware.com/live/airport/KVCV/arrivals/airline?;offset=0;sort=DESC;order=aircrafttype
