On Tuesday evening, the Boeing 757-300 operated by Condor and registered D-ABOA suffered an engine problem shortly after takeoff from Lanzarote. The machine should have actually flown to Hamburg as DE1439, but the pilots made a safe return landing.

The airline confirmed that "a problem was detected with one of the two engines" immediately after take-off. The captain therefore decided to return to Lanzarote Airport. Technicians are taking a close look at the affected Boeing 757-300 and will carry out repair work. So far, the D-ABOA is still at the Spanish airport.

Condor said about the return landing on Lanzarote: "This is a common maneuver in which there was never any danger for the 266 guests and the eight crew members in this case either".

A spotter accidentally filmed the launch of the D-ABOA and published the video on YouTube. The engine malfunction cannot be seen because the camera did not follow the movement of the aircraft. However, the incident can be heard very clearly.

    and what about “Fuel”? dumping Or was there sooo little in the tanks that it was possible to land "without hesitation", i.e. "no damage to the aircraft was to be feared"?

    An overweight landing may be carried out on a Boeing 757-300 because it cannot dump fuel. However, an inspection must be carried out afterwards and can be found in the AMM. (e.g. tire wear, loose screws on the fairing)
