I was recently involved in a flight that had issues before take off. The plane was an Airbus 321.
It was explained to me as being a "wing loop fault". The problem was that the ECAM messages were displayed differently each time and were inconsistent. The flight was aborted just before take off (for safety reasons) but the problem was fixed soon after by replacing a part.
Can anyone explain this problem with the wing loop to me in more detail. What could have gone wrong and what was the likely fix.
Also, what maintenance and pre-flight checks should occur on the "wing loop"?
Sorry for any vagueness in my question, I didn't receive much information.
- This was on aircraft G-OMYJ around the 24th August 2013
- My route was (EMA) --> (DLM), flight TCX5894. But the fault may have occurred on the previous flight. The details are unfortunately hazy. Is there anyway of me finding the whereabouts of the plane in the days leading up to this incident?
