Mesa CRJ7 at Charlotte on Jan 21st 2020, odour in cabin
Last Update: January 23, 2020 / 14:52:19 GMT/Zulu time
A passenger reported they had problems at engine start, ground equipment was brought in, then engine start succeeded. The aircraft departed and had to turn back, the aircraft landed hard, thrust reversers were not used. Emergency services were chasing them down the runway. The passenger did not report any odour or smoke. Later the passenger added: "There was smoke and odour in the cabin on the initial attempt at engine start with equipment, but they vented the cabin by opening the main door at the gate. We did not notice any odours when we turned back for the landing, and the whole situation was odd because they did not provide any information of the situation once we landed."
A replacement CRJ-700 registration N518LR reached Washington with a delay of 4 hours.
