Cockpit Fire Forces Jetstar Passenger Airbus A330 to Make Emergency Landing in Guam

A Jetstar Airbus A330-200  with 203 people on board was forced into an emergency landing after a fire broke out in the cockpit.

The Jetstar Airbus A330-200, a similar model to the Air France Airbus flight 447 that crashed last week, was flying from Osaka, Japan to Australia when the cockpit caught fire.

The pilots put out the fire which broke out about four hours into the flight from Osaka to the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, before landing the plane in Guam, Jetstar was reported as saying, adding that all on board were unharmed.

“Smoke became evident in the cockpit and one of our pilots was required to use an extinguisher,” a Jetstar spokesman told Australia’s ABC News.

“We conducted an emergency diversion to Guam international airport where the aircraft landed without incident.”

He said the plane, which is two years old, would be held in Guam until the cause of the fire was established.

Flight JQ 20 left Kansai International Airport (OSAKA) about 21:00 Wednesday  bound for Perth with  186 adult passengers, four babies and a crew of 13 including 4 pilots. Most of the passengers were Japanese nationals, a report said.

Jetstar is a budget airline based in Australia and Singapore, and is part-owned by Australia’s national carrier, Qantas.

The Moderators have been expecting another Air New Zealand Airbus A320 to plunge into the sea (again), based on the airline’s safety statistics, but Air France beat the kiwis to it!

The probability remains that the next major air disaster would occur as a result of an Air New Zealand Airbus crashing into the sea [with a certainty of 0.74] —Airbus Must Come Clean

Airbus Catastrophic Failure a Fatal Design Flaw

Breaking News: Cockpit Fire Forces Airbus A330 to Land

Airbus EFIS fails catastrophically when facing unforeseen circumstances

Airbus electronic flight instrument system and onboard computers fail catastrophically in rough conditions

FEWW Moderators believe that Air France flight AF 447 from Rio de Janeiro to Paris most likely crashed as a result of catastrophic flight system failure caused by  a fatal design flaw in the Airbus 3xx series electronic flight instrument system, EFIS, and its onboard computers.

While the system seems to function in normal conditions, the computers seem unable to deal with ‘extreme’ situations that are caused by either the pilot error, as in the case of Air New Zealand Airbus 320 that plunged into the Mediterranean sea, or in above normal weather conditions, similar to the turbulence that Air France plane  most likely experienced en route from Brazil to France.

EFIS manages pilot’s selections and repeats the input to all necessary control units within the flight control system. When the difference between the data obtained from the air data computer and the input selected by the pilot exceeds the “permitted” range, the range within which the system can successfully function, a catastrophic failure caused by a fatal design flaw seems to occur which disables the system and prevents it from generating the appropriate warnings, which would enable the pilot to respond accordingly. The aircraft goes out of control and crashes.
