I only wish i could have thought of that first, Brilliant.

The plane looked like it was falling to bits.

Regulation state that an Engine has to be able to contain "blade offs" within the fan case, so they run an engine up to red line speeds and then detonate a small explosive at the base of one of the fan blades and see what happens.

The blade in question is painted a bright colour to highlight it on high speed camera footage.

BA fire report suggests engine casing breach
33 minutes ago

British Airways flight on fireImage copyrightJordan Masters
An initial report on a British Airways plane which caught fire at a Las Vegas airport suggests engine parts flew out and landed on the runway.
The US's National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said the casing around a key component of the engine had been found to have "multiple" breaches.
The casing should contain any damage but spool parts, about 7-8 inches in length, were found on the runway.
The fire forced the evacuation of 170 people on board on emergency slides.
Meanwhile, the plane's pilot Chris Henkey, from Reading, has said he is "unlikely" to fly a scheduled trip to Barbados, after which he was due to retire.
The plane's flight data and cockpit voice recorders are now being examined by the NTSB, and the left engine is due to be shipped to experts to uncover what caused the fire.

Impressed with the technical knowledge on here but moreso with the pilot and crew in the evacuation procedure - caps doffed to one and all

Re: That BA plane that caught fire in Vegas
The AD basically says that cracks were discovered in an engine, and that airlines now have to do additional testing on an ongoing and regular schedule to see if their engines are suffering the same problem.

Presumably BA complied with that directive.

Interesting is that Boeing and GE both tried to get the wording changed to from declaring it an unsafe condition, and that the cracks couldn't lead to an uncontained failure. The regulator refused their request.

Well, there clearly was an uncontained failure in the exact same area of the engine as described in the AD. If the investigation discovers the same cracks, and identifies them as the cause, then Boeing and GE will have egg on their faces.

Re: That BA plane that caught fire in Vegas
The plane is sixteen years old. How often do the engines get changed?

Far Cough 10:03 Thu Sep 10
Re: That BA plane that caught fire in Vegas
Oh shit. I just read it again, that AD was issued on August 18th 2011

Now they don't have to take them out of service but they do have to comply with the directive by a certain date, so who knows what the paper trail is on this particular GE90 engine

Far Cough 9:59 Thu Sep 10
Re: That BA plane that caught fire in Vegas
No, that particular AD became effective on August 18th well before this incident


On another point, as I know Whuffy will read this, I will hold my hands up and concede that I was wrong in suggesting that Easyjet engine getting taped, were bleed holes, while engines do have these, it does seem they are rivets

So I apologise to Whuffy as it seems I was wrong

Re: That BA plane that caught fire in Vegas
That is standard procedure prior to thorough investigation. Sometimes the manufacturer blows the whistle though.

Far Cough 9:43 Thu Sep 10
Re: That BA plane that caught fire in Vegas
No they haven't grounded them YET but as Herts link shows, they have issued an airworthiness directive for that particular engine

Re: That BA plane that caught fire in Vegas
The NTSB have not seen fit to ground planes with that model of GE engine yet. Neither do GE seem to have made a statement.
