it flew on four engines in the end
(FR24 quoting AF - seems unlikely to be at 37000ft and 530kts on three?)

Yes. A Middle Eastern airline did a 3 engine ferry flight SYD to homebase last month. Flight number was 9009, but you will have to figure out the operator.

Routed back to Abu Dhabi via Singapore after 5 days grounded at SYD.

Oops.

Sounds like something similar to the Sioux City United Airlines Flight 232. Final report.

I'm not willing to accept the final conclusions in this report.

Of course the investigation was thorough and the conclusions matched the available evidence up to the point of association with a unique material characteristic not previously identified in fan hub service.

What is needed is a more thorough development of the estimated time and stresses both centrifugal and vibratory modes present in this engines hub in its operating cycle. To wit the operating stresses in this engine may have been abnormally affected during one or more cycles

Are we speaking of the "right" incident ? This thread started about a flight out of Abidjan (Ivory coast) !

You're correct atakacs, too quick on the draw I'm afraid, my apologies, should be here.

Re the OP's incident, an IFSD that doesn't cause any collateral damage (as appears to be the case here) doesn't usually warrant an AIB investigation.

Unless the aircraft continues for another 5,000 miles to its destination on 3 engines.
