Fokker 100 Aircraft Crashed After Severe Engine Icing

On 5 January 2004 a Fokker 70 departed from Vienna with for a scheduled flight to Munich. It had been an uneventful flight until the airplane was transferred to the air traffic control unit Munich. Suddenly, at FL 90, heavy vibrations on the RH engine were indicated during the approach to airport Munich. When additionally unusual noises were coming from the rear of the airplane, the crew declared an emergency due to severe engine problems and requested to be cleared for an immediate landing. Thus the airplane was immediately cleared for a descent to 3,500 ft and by means of several heading instructions guided to a short approach of approximately 8 NM to the instrument landing system of runway 26L. Because the airplane could not maintain the glide slope it touched down approximately 2.5 NM short of the beginning of the runway on a snow covered field with the landing gears partially extended. After a sliding distance of 220 m, the airplane came to rest lying on its severely damaged fuselage. All occupants were able to leave the airplane without assistance.

Fokker 27 Loss of Aircraft Control on Approach

The Fokker F27 pitched nose-up when the flight crew extended full flaps on final approach. The crew did not regain control, and the aircraft stalled and struck the ground. The accident report said that the aircraft’s center of gravity was significantly aft of the approved limit.

Fokker 27 Loss Of Control In Strong Crosswind

During approach to Guernsey, United Kingdom, the pilots of the Fokker F27 received a report containing an average of wind-speed values recorded over a two-minute period. The aircraft touched down about mid-field, according to witnesses, then overran the end of the runway, veered left and struck an embankment.

Fokker 100 Lightning Strike

An in-flight lightning strike caused depletion of fluid from the main hydraulic systems, and the alternate anti-skid braking system failed, but none of the occupants was injured when the airplane veered off a wet runway during landing.

Fokker 70 Severe Icing On Takeoff

During rotation the left engine developed fan vibration followed immediately by the failure of the right engine at lift off. The crew executed a right hand turn at 1.500 feet QNH and proceeded to a holding fix to prepare for a single engine return to Torino. A PAN PAN PAN call was transmitted.

Fokker 27 High Speed Landing

The aircraft carried out a lower and faster approach than normal, due to gusty wind conditions, and touched down further along the runway than normal i.e. almost halfway down the runway. The aircraft skidded along the runway and off at its end, coming to a halt with the nose section of the aircraft in the sea, with the main wheels resting on the edge of the embankment leading to the sea.
