Reply To: Flight BA762 LHR – Oslo emergency landing

Back to Forum



A walk-around check is mandatory before every flight, but if you ever get close to an A319, you will find that the engine pods are close to the ground and it is not so easy to see if the latches are in place on the cowls. Some are fitted with devices to hold them open, if unlatched and some are painted in bright colours to help. It should not happen, but if you look at the record of cowls leaving aircraft, it is sadly something that happens from time to time.
