29 August 2005

A Turkish Fly Air Airbus A.300B4 (TC-FLK) has been grounded at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport after inspectors discovered the airliner had a fuel leak and tyre problems. The airplane, headed for Antalya with 148 passengers, was grounded on Saturday and barred from flight again on Sunday after a second inspection. Inspectors discovered a small fuel leak on the left side of the aircraft and found two of its wheels were fitted with unauthorised tyres. On August 24 a Fly Air A.300 operating for Khartago Airlines ran into trouble at Paris, with passengers refusing to reboard the plane. (AAP)
