B777 Singapore Airlines makes emergency landing in Japan

Singapore Airlines jet makes emergency landing in Japan

A spokesman for Singapore Airlines (Singapore) says that one of the airline’s Boeing 777-200 aircraft made a safe landing at Japan’s Nagoya Airport after the flightcrew had to perform an emergency shut down of one of the aircraft’s engines inflight. No injuries were reported and the aircraft is undamaged. The aircraft encountered engine problems about 30 minutes out of the airport.

Just what is going on these days with it - down almost daily with shutdowns in flight

Just too much radio waves in the atmosphere!!! The proliferation of cell phone technology and techies' over confidence that everything electronic stuff is safe despite anecdotal evidence and reports to the contrary make us think all is well and dandy. I have seen strange things happened in my glass cockpit when cell phone and car radar detecors were switched on; the strange thing was that the strange stuff happened intermittently or transiently; unable to be duplicated despite repeated attempts, then suddenly they occurred sporadically again.

Remember the B737 rudder PCU which reverse commanded years ago...it only happened after several years of testing with liquid nitrogen!

It amazes me how people can just dismiss EMI as possible cause without attempting to test/duplicate the possible cause exhaustively.

At what point does the whole B777 ETOPS get re-examined? How many in-flight engine shutdowns are they allowed for the type, or will politics make the FAA et al a bit slower to act? I can imaging the chaos on Pacific routes if the type had to take longer trips to stick within 2 hours of land.

Re. Akali D. "just too much radio waves...". Of course I understand this is a hypothesis only, but I am worried that EMI could be considered as unavoidable, bound to happen. We are not taking about a brief interference with the navigation systems, but an engine shutdown! If EMI can shut down an engine, something is very wrong with the design. On the other hand, I would be curious to know how often just plain imperfect connections can cause problems, and how often these imperfections would go unnoticed because the software is robust to some extent...

I'll say it's all the pollution. All that CO2, and less O2, and the motors start to huff and puff
