Uncontained engine failure at YSSY

Shivers down spine... Can't find the story anywhere except Facebook.

No other details except cowling totally breeched.

That's ahead of the fan! Would blades come off and forward? In all that inward airflow?

Isn't there supposed to be a kevlar blanket around the circumference of the fan to contain loose blades ??

Hard to see for sure but those engines use to suffer from acoustic lining cowl failure.

Looks identical to this EGYPTAIR incident less than 1 month ago, both powered by T700, both left hand engine

Incident: Egypt A332 at Cairo on May 15th 2017, rejected takeoff due to engine failure

Possibilities are

primary failure of the inlet cowl and ingestion into the engine

Primary failure of a large part of a blade and parts ejected forward (mechanically)


Closeup evidence would certainly have confirmed which one came first. So no use guessing from casual photos

All of MU's A330s are fitted with Rolls-Royce Trent 700s.

I suspect cowl play.

All over the news on tv this morning. Have to love the news with lines line this : A China Eastern flight from Sydney to Shanghai has been forced to turn around after its flight crew noticed a hole in the plane's engine just moments after taking off.


Strange, doesnt look like there is any damage to the blades...

Flight Radar shows event took place between the airport and Hornsby Heights.
Presumably it didn't occur within airport boundary or we would be seeing pictures of the debris?
If it occurred outside the boundary, is it likely the debris will be discovered and reported by members of the public?

Similar damage to this Emirates incident in 2006 on its right hand engine. See post 26 for pics.

As the failure is on the inboard side - what happened to the portside fuselage?

Maybe it was harmonic resonance.

well, they did get a video chat from the engine! What is wrong with the press?!?!? I listened and I heard visual check, not video chat.......

I bet that the inspection and repair requirements of the cowl on that engine has been moved up!
