BERLIN – On January 15th a LOT Polish Airlines de Havilland Dash 8-400 flight declared an emergency after takeoff due to a hydraulic system failure.

The aircraft registered OY-YBY was operating a daily domestic flight from Warsaw to Gdansk in Poland when the incident occurred.

Flight LO3835 was climbing out of Warsaw (WAW) as the crew noticed a hydraulic system failure.

Because they were not able to fully retract their landing gear after takeoff, they halted their climb at 4,000ft and returned to Warsaw.

The 14-year-old Dash 8-400 involved in the accident was carrying 29 passengers and 4 crew.

The day after the incident the aircraft operated a flight from Warsaw to Bydgoszcz.

This is the third incident involving LOT Polish airlines within the last 3 weeks.

With a recent emergency landing due to a malfunctioning window and last week’s emergency landing due to malfunctioning flaps.
