Factual Information

On 4 March 2005, at 1405 Eastern Daylight-saving Time, a Boeing Company 737-86N aircraft, registered VH-VOG, was being operated on a scheduled passenger service from Melbourne to Brisbane. The pilot in command (PIC) reported that during the take-off roll, the aircraft unexpectedly deviated to the right of the runway 27 centreline and the nosewheel felt as though it ‘had been caught in a groove’. The PIC applied left rudder to regain directional control and continued the takeoff and flight to Brisbane. The circumstances of this incident were similar to those identified in a previous Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) investigation, (see investigation report 199703237).
