A330 Engine failure in JFK

Not much in the news, A330 belonging to Aerolineas Argentinas had a engine failure in JFk, I would assume during the takeoff roll

Plane bound for Buenos Aires suffers engine fire at JFK Airport, sources say | abc7ny.com

"Once the fire was out, the plane taxied under its own power off the runway."

Don't you just love the media ?

according to this Tweet https://twitter.com/jacdecnew
it was cleared to take off from runway 31L.
RH ENG Failure accured in the early seconds of acceleration, however the pilot was heared over the radio after being informed about a "fire on the right engine", saying: "We dont have an indication".

Probably didn't have a fire warning if the failure was contained inside the Engine casing.

Don't you just.
Especially as every part of an airport apart from the terminal seems to be "The Runway".

Aerolinas Arguementinas

ok, slag the media, esp the Daily Mail coverage, BUT, have you noticed the thrust reverser is semi-deployed on the engine in question - the casing gap ring is clear.


Casing slid back to partial deploy position prior to take off? Me thinks not folks...


As you were...

It would seem that the flame part is nothing more than a high power surge out both ends.

The one pic seems to show all kinds of sparks. If we're not being tricked by grainy pics than then it's possible that a few turbine bits have come out the rear end as well.

I guess they will just change out the engine and put it back into service in a day or so and thus ends the news interest.

Aerolineas Argentina have a mixed fleet, but this one was PW4168-powered.

Seems it was LV-FNJ. That was quite a bang on the video, plus a lot of scrap metal tinkling sounds!

Once, ages ago, this used to be a forum for pilots. Hey Rob?

Indeed! Quite a bang on this one. This video makes me remember when a A319 belonging to AC had a contained engine failure in SJO...was a nice explosion

I would not be too surprised if the engine failure was the result of ice accumulated during taxi Which detached when they set up takeoff power.

All I can say is that as a SLF, if I heard what was on the PAX video (with the accompanying light flashes), I would be more than a little startled and concerned. Is such an occurrence sufficiently routine and/or distinctive that the pilots would have been both unalarmed and immediately fully knowledgeable as to what occurred? I stand ready to be corrected, but I would guess not. Thankfully, the incident appears to have occurred early in the roll at relatively low speed, so all ended well.

It and a lot more is a part of their training

The training syllabus is designed so that pilots are not surprised like the average passenger might be.

I would be damn near shocked.
