BoA B733 at Santa Cruz on Mar 24th 2019, control column vibrations
Last Update: December 3, 2019 / 17:21:03 GMT/Zulu time
Bolivia's Media reported at the time citing an "inofficial source" that the control column began to severly vibrate on a flight from Santa Cruz to Tarija. The aircraft , CP-3020 was taken out of service as result. The media speculated on the base of this source, that the aircraft might never fly again (which proved incorrect, the aircraft returned to service).
Bolivia's DGAC, although listing other BoA incidents e.g. involving CP-3020 on Mar 7th 2019, see Incident: BoA B733 at La Paz on Mar 7th 2019, fracture of left shimmy damper on landing or CP-3077 on Mar 8th 2019, see Accident: BoA B733 at La Paz on Aug 3rd 2019, main wheels rotate in relation to gear strut, never listed this occurrence, only the occurrence of a light aircraft (PA-32) is being listed by the DGAC Bolivia on Mar 24th 2019.
However, on Dec 2nd 2019 the US NTSB reported an incident happened at Santa Cruz on Mar 24th 2019 involving a Boeing 737, Bolivia's AIG is investigating the occurrence. The NTSB joined the investigation representing the state of manufacture of the aircraft.
