Incident at Vancouver, B.C.

Summary

1997-01-02: Approximately 1.5 hours after take-off from Hong Kong, the crew of the DC10 advised dispatch that they were encountering errors of up to 50NM on all three inertial navigation systems (INS). The errors became worse and the crew diverted to Tokyo/Narita. Because there was a possibility of ATC holds and a noise curfew, the crew declared an emergency to get a clearance. No. 1 and No. 3 INS were replaced, and the MD-DC-10 departed for Vancouver.
