Improper engine rinse preceded Globus 737 evacuation

Russian investigators have dynamic that a Globus Boeing 737-800 was evacuated during Moscow after a high-speed aborted take-off, after a fume warning traced to crude engine cleaning.

The aircraft – a 14-year aged airframe, purebred VP-BDF – had been vacating Moscow Domodedovo for Novosibirsk on 27 March.

Russia’s sovereign atmosphere ride management Rosaviatsia states that it had accelerated to 100kt when a organisation aborted a take-off roll, interlude a jet on a runway, and systematic a evacuation.

The preference had been triggered by a participation of fume in a newcomer cabin and cockpit.

Rosaviatsia says an “unpleasant odour” had creatively been viewed by a organisation as anti-icing glass in a air-conditioning system.

All 4 brazen and back doors, as good as a overwing exits, were used for a evacuation, with slides being deployed.

Eighteen passengers were treated for injuries during a Domodedovo airfield medical centre. The aircraft had been transporting 129 passengers and 6 organisation members.

Inquiries dynamic that a aircraft had undergone an engine rinse on a CFM International CFM56 powerplants a prior evening.

But a engine rinse procedure, conducted by S7 Engineering, was not entirely completed. Rosaviatsia says a procession for cleansing a air-conditioning complement was conducted during low power, since a technical primer requires bearing of 60-80% of N1.

As a result, it adds, residual glass in a atmosphere intakes evaporated during a depart and entered a aircraft cabin.

Rosaviatsia also found that a atmosphere trade control group wrongly identified a plcae of a aircraft to puncture crew which, it says, “led to a delay” in their arrival.
