Kuwait A306 near London on Feb 11th 2014, hydraulic failure
Last Update: February 19, 2014 / 16:04:59 GMT/Zulu time
The aircraft was able to depart again 5 hours after landing and reached Kuwait with a delay of 5:45 hours.
On Feb 19th 2014 the airline told The Aviation Herald: "The Event occurred due to Cabin smoke smell/fumes due to which diversion was considered. On the ground, inspection was carried out on all the related systems including engine, air conditioning, hydraulics etc and all found satisfactory. Few feathers were found on Engine 1 and BirdStrike Inspection was also carried out. Note that the same aircraft departed and landed without incident few hours later. Still we cannot confirm the exact source of Smoke/Smell and Investigation is still under progress."
