Qatar Airways A306 Cargo engine fire indication diverted

Incident Happens on 26th of March 2011 Near Sofia.

A Qatar Airways Airbus A300-600, registration A7-ABX performing freight flight QR-6036 from Milano Malpensa (Italy) to Doha (Qatar) with inflammable cargo, was enroute at FL310 about 65nm northwest of Sofia (Bulgaria) when the crew reported a fire indication for the right hand engine (PW4158) and decided to divert to Sofia. The airplane landed safely in Sofia about 30 minutes later.

The airport reported that emergency services had taken all necessary precautions because of the inflammable cargo. On approach no fire was observed from the engine.

Nothing special.
Sunday late a maintenance team arrived on a 777 to change the fire bottle and release the a/c.
Good job guys!

Small correction......

with inflammable cargo
Some time ago (1972 ) the definitions were changed so substances that are liquid and can burn are called "Flammable" and solids are called "Combustible"

For the same substances that won't burn it's "Non-flammable" and "Non-combustible"

I make the point because you may, one day, have to talk to the Fire Chief who will use this terminology.......

loc22550... This A300(pictured) had engine fire indication. BUT B777F(Qatar Airways) flew to Sofia for A300 engine spare parts.
