777 Loses Engine Parts Over Denver

Recommended Posts

That's an interesting waste of $15million, in light of Qantas Flight 32 London to Sydney, 4 November 2010.

You might recall this: A380, suffered an uncontained failure in one of its four Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines.

On inspection, a turbine disc in the aircraft's number-two engine (on the port side nearest the fuselage) was found to have disintegrated, causing extensive damage to the nacelle, wing, fuel system, landing gear, flight controls, and engine controls, and a fire in a fuel tank that self-extinguished. It's a tale to re-live:



But there's another one in 2018 which makes me wonder even louder, about mothballing effects: 

“The blade corrosion resulted from chemical residue associated with the cleaning procedure used during the last engine service,” the ATSB said.

This guy explains it well 

I had more questions answered about this engine failure from the picture of the fan blades and the mechanics video that you posted than anywhere else on the internet or TV. Thanks for posting those Matthew. Just goes to prove, "If you want to know what really happened, read Avsim". :biggrin:

Only aircraft parts... not engine parts, that was funny.  Besides the two blades, all the fan frame guide vanes and also the cowl anti ice lying on the street i guess you could argue that. I mean if it doesnt spin and get hot then its not an engine part?? That news to me.  I can also go down the technical rabbit hole and say thats its not an engine but a powerplant but where does it end?
