Lancaster pulls out of weekend engagements after engine shutdown drama

Quote from: The Northern Echo

by Andy Walker

FIRE crews were called to Durham Tees Valley Airport this morning, after the Mynarski Memorial Lancaster suffered an oil leak resulting in plumes of smoke coming from one of its engines.

The plane – which took part in a nostalgic flypast for hundreds of veterans yesterday – had taken off from the airport for a short flight over Saltburn and the North Yorkshire coast.

However, it had to return to the airport only a short time into the flight.

Plumes of smoke were seen coming from a starboard engine of the Lancaster as it landed at the airport near Darlington.

The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, which owns the aircraft, has cancelled the Lancaster's engagements for the weekend.

It was on this day in 1999 that fellow aviator Alan Lewis was shot down over Ethiopia/Eritrea. I knew him quite well as we had flown together at Phoenix Airways and after..

A public relations war of words between UPS and the cargo airline's pilots union has gotten both kicked off the investigation team working to determine what caused the crash of UPS Flight 1354 in Birmingham, Alabama, on Aug. 14, 2013.
 
The National Transportation Safety Board announced yesterday it has revoked the party status of UPS and the Independent Pilots Association, barring further involvement by representatives from either side looking into the crash of the UPS Airbus A300-600, which killed both pilots while attempting to land in Birmingham. The action came after the union on August 13 issued a press release titled "UPS Pilots Call for End of Part 117 Carve-out on Anniversary of Fatigue Crash" and UPS responded with comments on the Air Cargo World website.
