BA 16 SIN SYD

British Airways Boeing 777-36NER G-STBE operating the Singapore – Sydney sector of BA16 Sydney – Singapore – London Heathrow was climbing through 28,000ft to the South East of Kuala Lumpur this evening when the #2 engine failed. Crew returned to Singapore for a safe landing. Unconfirmed reports state that engine parts caused damage to the fail fin.

Any othere information?

That quote from the BAsource website is horribly convoluted and potentially confusing. The flight number southbound (LHR-SIN-SYD) is the BA15, it then changes to the BA16 northbound (SYD-SIN-LHR), so either the flight number is wrong or the destination (Sydney) is wrong.

No other info other than I do know the aircraft is still on the ground in SIN, so the “source” got that bit right.

The turnback occurred about 25 minutes into the SIN-LHR sector.

Aircraft currently sitting on a remote bay in WSSS with #2 engine sitting on a trolley underneath the pylon, so the problem was serious enough to require removal. No blindingly obvious damage to the tail fin, however I was taxiing behind and was looking mostly at the engine area so I could have easily missed it.
