      Sorry i deliberately left this thread to see if you chaps had read or heard something.
      flight FJE803 left laranaca almost 24 hours late on Monday evening.On take off a loud bang was heard by passengers and crew the aircraft maintained its course for Manchester ,over Manchester the aircraft circled to use up fuel on landing the pilot cut the engines and rolled it down the run way followed by fire and ambulance crew.The aircraft parked up at the far side of the run way and kept its passengers on board for over two hours.
      The things that worry me are the reports of no explanation to the passengers.
      The cabin crew in a obvious state of distress.
      One cabin crew member telling passengers that he didnt what to board the aircraft.
      Why keep the passengers and crew on board that long.
      My reason for the interest is my in laws were on the flight and where obviously frightened by the incident.Im trying to allay their fears of flying again by explaining that if the pilot thought it serious he would have put the aircraft back on the ground,any comments would be welcome.
      thanks dave.

        "A FlyJet Boeing 757-200 operating flight FJE803 from Larnaca to Manchester was forced to make an emergency landing at Manchester Airport on Monday after the crew reported a problem with one of its hydraulic systems. The aircraft made a safe landing around 2040 without the use of its flaps and was towed away from the runway as it was leaking hydraulic fluid." says www.justplanes.com

        Scary, but as you say, the pilot knows what he's doing.

          I'd be scared, too.

          It obviously wasn't a straightforward fault. Having to make an emergency landing and then to keep panic-stricken passengers on board for over 2 hours, with unsympathetic crew, is terrible.

            Plus that flight also performed a go-around as it developed more problems whilst on final approach (these being the hydraulic problems - missed out on the "fun" on whar the initial problems were). If I remember correctly, the flight conducted the 2nd approach and subsequent landing whilst on the approach frequency and on the ground was advised of the fire service frequency; the runway in use reverted to 06L for other aircraft. One of the ops vehicles intimiated it would be a 10-15 minute procedure to tow off the 06R - I'm sure they waited for a lull in the proceedings before this manoeuvre happened (can't remember what time it occurred - perhaps 2120?)
