There is something that I don't understand: when these things happen, the normal procedure is to shut the engine off, instead of keeping it struggling all time long. After all, if those twin-engined propeller planes from the 1930s (DC-3, Curtiss Commando,...) could already take off and fly on just one of their engines, why couldn't do it a modern airliner like this? Pilot mistake or was the engine damaged so bad that they couldn't switch it off? It was a miracle that vibrations didn't go to worse, which could have probably had fatal structural consequences for the joint points of the engine to the wing.

Listen to the audio as the pilots spoke with ATC. They sounded like the recording on a subway train announcing that Park Square Station was the next stop. So calm. I have a lot of respect for those pilots and the cabin crew. True professionals.

Yes there is. It is a called a Fire Engine checklist: Fire Engine Checklist 1. A/T ARM switch - affected side - confirm off (so damaged engine doesn't spool up). 2. Thrust lever - affected side - confirm idle for damaged engine (to cut off power to damaged engine). 3. FUEL CONTROL switch - affected side - confirm CUTOFF (to stop fuel going to damaged engine). 4. Engine Fire Switch - affected side- confirm Pull (cuts off hydraulics on damaged engine side). 5. If the FIRE ENG message stays shown: Engine fire switch - affected side - rotate to stop and hold for 1 second (extinguish detergent released into damaged turbine). If after 30 second the FIRE ENG message stays shown: Engine fire switch- affected side - Rotate to the other stop and hold for 1 second (to release 2nd fire extinguisher into turbine). ******************************************* 6. APU selector - if APU available - START, then ON 7. Transponder mode selector - TA ONLY 8. Plane to land at nearest suitable airport. 9. Do not accomplish the following checklist: AUTOTHROTTLE

If I understand correctly the engines on planes so expensive that most airlines actually lease them, they don’t have them!
NorthForkFisherman 10 days ago
Correct. It's easier to lease the engine from a known and certified supplier than it is to have a massive stockpile of parts and tools. A lot of things are just cheaper done that way. Avionics are another piece of equipment that is easier to just pull the black box and swap with a new one from the supplier. Saves time and money for both the carrier and the passenger.

Ituhata 12 days ago
@OhioExPax15 Agreed, though I would say JAL 123 and United 232 are great examples of how difficult it is to control a plane with a total loss of hydraulics. JAL123 had the increased difficulty of having no vertical stabilizer on top of no hydraulics. It is admirable how long that crew managed to keep that plane in the air under those conditions.
OhioExPax15 12 days ago
@Ituhata maybe not the best example, but Japan Air Lines flight 123 in 1985 stayed airborne for 30 minutes, after it's tail ripped off the aircraft. Years ago, an Aloha 737 lost the front third of the fuselage, but still landed safely in Honolulu. These planes aren't built with Kleenex and spit.
OhioExPax15 12 days ago
A Boeing 777 has the capability to fly on one engine. With ETOPS (Extended Operations) capability, it's more than likely that the aircraft, one over the Pacific, could have safely diverted to Los Angeles, San Francisco, or if it were close enough, Honolulu. The #1 Engine was shut down, and can fly safely on #2. Either way, it's far more likely the same result would have taken place, only at another airport.

@Andre P Aircraft are different than automobiles they have many engine manufactures to choose from same goes with heavy trucks. So its the engine manufactures job to repair engines and has nothing to do with Boeing. P&W RR GE are the major jet engine manufactures and they are the ones responsible for the engines not Boeing. RR had a very big issues with the trent 1000 I believe was the engine model a few years back causing the Boeing 787 that had them installed to be grounded but the Boeing 787s that didnt have that same engine installed on them were ok to fly it was RR responsibility to solve the engine issues not Boeing and they were just caught in the middle of a bad situation.

I watched this happened right in front of me. I was riding my bicycle and saw the plane westbound. It started trailing smoke and then flames. As it made 180° turn and headed back east directly overhead the engine exploded and there was a large boom and puff of smoke. I literally thought I might watch it crash right in front of me. Truly frightening to witness.

We lost an engine on our return trip a number of years ago from Honolulu to Oakland. We weren't far out of HNL and it was very scary. But we had a deadheading pilot in the seat behind us. He told us that this kind of thing is what they train for and he appeared not to be concerned at all. That made it better for those of us sitting within earshot. We got back safely and they rounded up another plane & crew and gave everyone free round trip tix for another flight. That's one of the years we were on the airpass and I'm guessing we probably went over 15 times that year.
