Video - Iran Air B727 at Tehran on Oct 18th 2011, landed without nose gear

提交時間:
 
An Iran Air Boeing 727-200, registration EP-IRR performing flight IR-742 from Moscow Sheremetyevo (Russia) to Tehran Imam Khomeini (Iran) with 94 passengers and 19 crew, was on approach to Tehran's Imam Khomeini Airport around 15:20L (11:50Z) when the crew did not receive a down and locked indication for the nose gear and aborted the approach. Following unsuccessful troubleshooting the crew decided to divert to Tehran's Mehrabad Airport where a low approach confirmed the nose gear was… (www.youtube.com) 更多...

19 crew on a B-727??? still flying a B-727??? Were those B-747-100s in the background...
tartarus12
My thoughts exactly. I didn't realize there were any 727s still in service.

I would have to wonder about 19 crew. I didn't know any were still in regular service. There are quite a few around in private or soecialty service. I don't even know if any are in charter service. I've seen then in Race Horse transport down at Hot Springs, belonging to some outfit in California.

In Iran anything is possible.

A lot of airlines in 3rd world countries still use the 727 on passenger services. Most 727's are used as cargo planes. Fed Ex still has a fleet of about 60 727's, though they are being withdrawn from service over the next several years, being replaced by the 757.

That's too bad that Fed Ex is getting rid of them.

Yep to bad but gotta stay modern these days.

Ryan: you sure about 757's, I thought they were doing 777's. 757's have been out of production since October of 04
Ryan198416
They are replacing them with used 757's, I don't know who they are getting them from. But they are also getting 777's too.

@guy lever, see my comments below. It was a good, actually a masterpiece landing, and those were 747's of some type in the background. It would not surprise me for them to be 100's considering they are still using 727's in regular PAX service

I believe that was a -100 series 727 too! Even older that expected. I worked on them for many years. Great airplane.

It did appear to be a -200,but the film was too blurry? The 727-100 had a oval #2 inlet,the later -200 had the round. I trained on the -100 and got diff. training for the 200. There are a number of American pilot's retired and were still able to fly in other countries after age 60,so maybe he/she was a American citizen?

The "outfit" in Hot Springs is Kalitta Charters II...an "airline" that shouldn't even exist. You hear me, right Colon and Dougie?

Outfit you say in Hot Springs is Kalitta Charters II...one of the worst outfits in Supplemental Carriers. Operated by Dougie Kalitta, another worthless drag racer like his criminal Uncle, Connie Kalitta. It's sad when Iran Air can maintain a 727 better than Kalitta...and it's all legally maintained too.

preacher1 0
It's been awhile back but I don't think it was KalittaII, but can't say for sure. I just remember seeing it in a news blurb. Seem like it said they were based in CA. I'm wanting to say it was kinda gold colored with red stiping & trim. Flew in some special horse. Had some kinda name painted on the side(something transport)
lucasmccain
lucasmccain 0
You're right about the colors Wayne, and it is a Kalitta Charters II 727-200. Tex Sutton contracts them to fly the horses. They have no business flying into Hot Springs...way too dangerous! But I guess if you spread enough cash across the table, the Feds will eventually bite and give their blessing. Just so everyone knows, I've got friends in the horse biz...I wouldn't let Tex Sutton handle my horse no sooner than I would let Kalitta Charters or Kalitta Charters II transport my dog.

Dang, Phil.... what did we ever do to you?

Which Hot Springs are you talking about. Can u elaborate on the reasons why it should be a no go for this airline?

Good, excelent landing. I remember when jet blue aircraft had the same situation some years ago in usa

KC,flew my friend in a FJ-20 to MCAS Miramar three years ago for his funeral,I guess the Gov. has a contract with them to bring our "war hero's")home in a box too?

It's a -200. The registration was given as EP-IRR, and clicking on http://www.airliners.net/photo/Iran-Air/Boeing-727-286-Adv/1999588/L/&sid=666734aadbc0a95d46581ad579b2765e shows the aircraft after landing. The "IRR" can be seen by the rear door and "RR" at the top of the tail. That aircraft will be back in the air in no time at all.

In answer to some of the comments here, Iran Air is well-known among vintage airliner enthusiasts for continuing to fly some classic airframes like the 747-100, 727-200, etc. But there are plenty of 727s and pre-400 747s flying in various parts of the world. I regularly see non-winglet 747s (both freighters and passenger carriers) parked at my own home airport of Hong Kong (Orient Thai, for example), and 727 freighters at Manila and Clark in the Philippines (including some bearing the DHL colors).
21voyageur
u r correct, lots of old metal still flying, not surprising considering the lifespan of these birds. I think the key point in this thread however is the use of older technology for front line passenger service. I believe they may still an active 707 in service (they did a year or two ago)!

Wall, Dan, let's just say you'll be sucking underwear if there's a glitch in your approach or landing. No room for error. These Supplemental Carriers are for more interested in the almighty dollar than keeping their crews safe. With regards to Hot Springs, Arkansas, they do not provide the necessary emergency staff OR ground equipment in the event of a catastrophic accident or emergency; they should at least be using Little Rock, but Kalitta allows Tex Sutton to dictate the destination and puts their flight crews safety at risk. Kalitta knows this...and so do the Feds!

congrajulations for the pilots and more for iran air passengers
blondiewithanattitude
Let's put it this way, the local news crews were all out with their cameras to film the 727 landing there for the first time because no plane bigger than a Jetstream ever landed there before that. In addition, there were many comments from other aircraft in the area about hanging around to see the approaching accident. When the 727 comes to a stop - the entire nose is hanging over. the end of the runway. Bad...bad...bad
md69
You obviously haven't watched the video, or have no concept of aircraft recognition. At 0:32, there appears to be what looks like a camouflaged C-130. At 0:34, 0:36 & 0:37, there are Boeing 707s in the background. At 0:44 - 0:46, three Boeing 747s can be clearly seen, followed by 2 more at 0:51. Are you telling me that all these aircraft were disassembled at their previous landing places, moved by road to Mehrabad and then reassembled for whatever reason? A look on World Aero Data at Mehrabad airport's info - http://worldaerodata.com/wad.cgi?id=IR48304&sch=Mehrabad - will reveal that the airfield has two runways over 13,000' long. I suggest you refrain from making stupid comments.

pilots are very cooland skillfull. but bravest people are frequent fliers of iranian air.
in big airports,for using in such cases, there must be landing places fullfilled with mud which reduces speed easily than normal landing brakes and also prevents any electrical or frictional sparks. no flames even if fuel spoils.
md69
How many airports have you seen with "mud" runways, just in case an aircraft wants to land in an emergency? I'm just glad that some people who have posted on here are not at the pointy end of any aircraft I fly on.

It was pretty...that skid looked like less than 100 yards. He had everything out but the galley tea towels to keep that nose up and air speed down.
21voyageur
I think they sent the 17 remaining crew to the back of the plane to shift COG rearwards. That explains the high # of crew, a safety feature of the Iran Air 727s :-)

That was totally sweet, wasn't it?????LOL He's probably got quite a bit of stature as a Pilot in Iran, but using that video as an interview, he could about pick his job anywhere. That being said, we all train for that but who knows what will happen when the time comes.

Very good landing by the Iran Air pilots!

I wonder what the TSA equivalant is over there for Iran Air.
ToddBaldwin3
Maybe that's why there were 19 crew on that A/C.

The additional 17 crew members may make up the the TSA equivalent.

Excellent landing. It slid on its nose for so little time it probably had minimal damage

You gotta love a Boeing plane, they are built tuff. Complements to the crew, all 19 of them???, especially the 2 flying. That was the best no nose gear landing I have ever seen.That plane will fly again if they can get the parts to fix it.
WigzellRM
Good job!
WigzellRM
19 crew does seem quite a lot, but then I've been on a couple of Russian planes and they are not shy with the number of crew. There were 8 or 9 on our planes depending on whether a ground technician came along.
