Starbow B462 at Accra on Oct 28th 2014, hydraulic failure
Last Update: October 30, 2014 / 21:44:07 GMT/Zulu time
The airline confirmed a hydraulic failure resulting in a high speed landing during which the brakes overheated causing smoke to be seen by emergency services. Their observation prompted the crew to evacuate the aircraft. Two passengers received minor injuries in the evacuation.
The occurrence has created conflicting reports by Ghana's Ministry of Transport who reported the airline would not fly again and Ghana's Civil Aviation Authority pointing out that the airline can not be grounded as their AOC has not yet expired. The airline is free to lease other aircraft to perform their flights (indirectly suggesting that their current fleet has been grounded over concerns of safety).
