Bang, bang, bang! The reason flight turned back

July 18, 2019 Headline News No Comments

There are many sounds you hear in flight – some are quite soothing – but a passenger filming his takeoff when returning from holiday recorded some sounds unexpectedly that you don’t want to hear, which is why the plane turned back immediately.

The plane was a B737-200 operated by Magnicharters, a holiday airline headquartered in Colonia Juárez, Mexico. It runs domestic holiday flights out of Mexico City International Airport.

The clip below let’s you hear the sounds for yourself.

According to Simon Hradecky’s authoritative Aviation Herald, the plane was climbing out of Puerto Vallarta, a resort city, on a flight to Mexico City. The right-hand engine “ingested a bird and emitted a number of bangs” is how the publication puts it.

Bird strike is the common name. It’s fatal for the birds and not good for the engine either.

 

It sounds like a car backfiring. It’s either several birds or some other problem with the engine. Flight crew acted immediately, shutting down the engine and turning back to Puerto Vallarta for a safe landing.

Planefinder.net says the plane is 24 years old.
