Accidents & Serious Incidents involving B753
- B753, London Gatwick UK, 2014 (On 31 October 2014, indications of a malfunction of the right over wing emergency exit slide on take off were followed during the return to land by the complete detachment of the slide and un-commanded but controllable roll. The Investigation found that "a series of technical issues with the slide panel and carrier locking devices caused the slide carrier to deploy and the slide to unravel". Although an SB existed to address some of these issues, it had not been actioned on the aircraft. Two operational matters encountered during the Investigation were the subject of Safety Recommendations.)
