Atterraggio di emergenza a Fiumicino per un aereo della East African

Atterraggio di emergenza a Roma Fiumicino per un Boeing 767 della East African diretto a Zanzibar via Malpensa. La causa č l’incendio a uno dei motori. Sull'aereo viaggiavano 150 passeggeri, rimasti illesi. Il pilota ha spento le fiamme azionando i dispositivi di emergenza di bordo

A few days back an East African Boeing 767 suffered a fire in the left engine (GE engine). Apparently this was caused by a fuel leak. I do not have any more details. FCO is not having much luck lately.

Could be wrong, wouldn’t be the first time, but I thought the EASA B767 aircraft were PW4060 powered
