Airport Crash Companies arrived on scene within a minute of dispatch to find an American Airlines Boeing 767 with a fire in the number 1 engine. The plane, parked near hangar number two, was not in service at the time of the fire and was undergoing routine maintenance and engine checks. Firefighters immediately applied firefighting foam and were able to control the fire within sixteen minutes.

This series shows the entry and exit of the turbine stage as one went through the fuselage out the other side through the wing fuel tanks, through the other engine and stopped coming out the other side...the other spool went elsewhere.....

Amazing that one of the compressors flung itself from the housing but still remained intact - after shredding part of the under-fuselage.

That would not have ended well had that happened in flight...

Your topic name probably tripped several dozen CIA filters.

I hope that plane is never allowed to be repaired/flown again. I for one would not want to fly on it after that.

No that will be scrap....... In Derby the Museum has a display by Rolls Royce as it is the Engine Builders home town, there is one showing the compressor blades been blown off to ensure the engine can contain a fan blade if it ever happened......... the display tells you that if you tied a mini car to the end of the blade, the amount of energy released as the blade came would lift the mini vertically to a height of 100 feet.

We just got back from Hawaii - Maui to be exact - last week...we flew an Aloha 737-700 each way.

I kept waiting for the top to pop....

Good thing I didn't see this thread before flying.

LoL, gotta fly dash 200s then http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif


Aloha's kinda funny: we watched approaches at Lihue/ Kauai, when suddenly an Aloha 737-200 seemed to go-around, turned hard right (nice vortices and stuff coming off the wings..) and then hard left, to line up on the other runway (crossing the main rwy at 30?) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

That was fun to watch http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I'd have to agree several alarms just went off at FBI, NSA and CIA headquarters. Be careful they can get you when not wearing your tinfoil cap. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif That is amazingly lucky that happened on the ground and thankfully nobody got hurt. See you in interrogation taylor. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Correct! The vertical falls off on Airbuses...
Airbus, when you want to take down a lot of trees at once...

A competent pilot can destroy a modern airliner in a lot less than 16 minutes. Be sure.

Airbus or otherwise.
