Solar Cargo DC10 at Brasilia on Mar 7th 2016, flaps up landing
Last Update: March 8, 2016 / 14:15:40 GMT/Zulu time
ATC Brasilia reported that the aircraft likely experienced a bird strike during departure from Caracas against the slats of the aircraft, which went unnoticed by the crew. Only when the crew attempted to extend the flaps on approach to Brasilia the malfunction became apparent forcing the crew to perform a flaps up landing at high speed. Due to energy needed to be absorbed by the brakes a number of brakes overheated causing a number of tyres to deflate.
