18 Jan: Delta 1594 Emergency Landing at LAX
« on: January 20, 2018, 01:40:23 AM »
Delta 1594 took off from LAX and had to return and make emergency landing due to losing left hydraulic system.  Tower saw smoke coming from left side during landing. The aircraft sat on the runway (25R) for a while figuring things out and waiting for a tow which caused some traffic concerns. Unfortunately, can't hear responses from fire rescue vehicles (too far away from my location) but sounds like they were seeing a thermal anomaly (mentioned 300 degrees).  Recorded from personal scanner (wasn't able to find on the 127.85 LAX archive).  Good clear communications between all parties though must have been stressful for the crew.

I found the attached audio in the archives.
The clip is compiled from LAX Tower North, SoCal Departure, LAX Tower South, and Ground frequencies.
Transmissions from the SoCal Approach feed cannot be included as the feed has been down for the past 6 days.
Transmissions on the Discrete frequency, 127.850, are too broken to be of any use.  In any case most of them appear to be  available on the Tower South feed.
