Accidents & Serious Incidents at or in vicinity of EDJA
- A320 / GLID, vicinity Memmingen Germany, 2015 (On 6 April 2015, the crew of an A320 under radar control in Class E airspace and approaching 4000 feet made a very late sighting of a glider being flown by a student pilot which appeared ahead at a similar altitude. The glider pilot reported having seen a 'cone of light' coming towards him. Both aircraft took avoiding action as practicable and passed within a recorded 450 metres with the A320 passing an estimated 250 feet over the glider. The glider was not fitted with a transponder and was not required to be, and the controller had only secondary radar.)
- B738, vicinity Memmingen Germany, 2012 (On 23 September 2012 a Ryanair Boeing 737-800 made a premature descent to 450 feet agl in day VMC whilst turning right onto visual finals for runway 24 at Memmingen after the FMS selected altitude had been set to a figure only 44 feet above runway threshold elevation of 2052 feet amsl. EGPWS Alerts of ‘Sink Rate’ and ‘Caution Terrain’ prompted initiation of a go around which, as it was initiated, was accompanied by a an EGPWS ‘TERRAIN PULL UP’ warning. The go around and a second successful approach to runway 24 were uneventful. The Investigation is not yet complete.)
