Embraer EMB-145EP, G-RJXA
Approximately four and a half minutes after takeoff from Aberdeen (Dyce) Airport, while in the climb passing FL116, the Engine Indicating and Crew Alerting System (EICAS) caution and the ‘Autopilot disconnect’ warnings sounded. At the same time the commander’s Primary Flight Display, Multi Function Display and EICAS went blank and smoke appeared from the left side of his seat. After the crew declared an emergency and completed limited cockpit drills, G-RJXA returned to Aberdeen, where it landed within 15 minutes without further incident. The aircraft’s No 1 Integrated Avionics Computer (IC-600) had failed.
