@isabel lind Daaaang... there’s a catch 22 situation.

@Junior von Claire I'm sure we'd have heard it on these tapes if they had. Last yr a B777 had to return to LAX after losing engine power and dumped fuel over an elementary school...no injuries but I wonder if it was necessary.

@Bob Rae pictures show the blade punched a hole in the centre tank, so that may have solved that. Or they just performed an overweight landing. As long as they calculated the stopping distance was within the runway, primary concern would be to land the aircraft rather than airframe damage, in situations like this
Junior von Claire
@mafiaboy87 “mafia” boy? How old are you, sonny? My reliance on the investigation has no effect upon it, nor does your silly rant.

I was on with Denver Center and heard “things are starting to fall apart up here,” then found about this about 30-60 mins later. I assume it is was the same plane.

My understanding when declaring a MayDay and turning off an ATS routing or a SID, was west bound, turn left and east bound turn right. Time wasting asking what direction of turn would be liked. Two crew and CRM in effect one working the radio one flying and noting one busy, so worked the radio.

I heard later that day the same thing happened with a similar P&W 4000 engine on a 747 in Europe. Things are NOT looking good for Pratt & Whitney right now!

Not trying to armchair qb this, but mayday wasn’t the appropriate call. Pan pan or better yet, emergency aircraft would be the proper call. If this was in Hong Kong or China, ATC would not be happy. The crew did a fantastic job and this is only a nit pick detail. Mayday tells Foreign ATC that you need immediate vectors to land. They anticipate you aren’t able to remain airborne or have severe onboard fire/smoke. Pan Pan or emergency aircraft tells them you have some time. Time to dump fuel, run checklists, make passenger briefings. A UPS aircraft declared Mayday and proceeded to dump fuel for over an hour. Needless to say, ATC in the region was not happy.

Do we know if they dumped fuel? it seems to me there was no time for that so they landed almost fully loaded and managed to do a full stop on RWY. Respect!

Did they dump fuel? What does "heavy" mean?
TooMuch. Online
'Heavy' refers to the weight of sh%t in the passenger's underwear.

Sadly seeing that engine on fire ! Me being in the plane looking out that window I would have put my head down sadly saying this is my end we are going to blow up in the air or crash for sure... 1000 thoughts and regrets would have went through my mind.. Landing living is just pure miracle.. !!!!

Those are depictions of various navaids, airways, intersections, etc that air traffic controllers use to reference an aircraft position on their radar scope.

The number or pilots that were frustrated that the local news called the airport DIA (denver international airport) instead of DEN were ridiculous - was almost as though pilots thought they were the only ones that existed :)

The was an incident with a 4-engine Boing comming out of the Dutch Maastricht-Aachen-Airport (MST) just leaving the airport for New York on Saturday. One of the engines was heavily damaged and falling debris damaged several houses and cars. At least 2 people on the ground were injured. The plane landed in Liège (LGG) in Belgium. It was a 747-400 Cargo with medical equipment. Shortly ater the start the tower informed the pilots about a fire in one of the engines. The plane landed in Liege because of the longer runway. Plane number 6T5504, build in 1991. The plane belongs to Bermuda based Longtail Aviation. Hope you find something about it.

I guess they didn't dump fuel? I always thought that they had to do that. Must not these days cause they were calling him heavy all the way home.
Dynasty001 2 days ago
The 777 can land above MLW so dumping fuel is not a necessity. "Heavy" is just a term used for widebody aircraft in the US for distance purposes due to the risk of heavier wake turbulence to other aircraft.

@Paul Janssen then why dump fuel on other emergencies when the engine is not on fire?

I think we should all be happy this didn't happen over the pacific halfway between Cali and Hawaii, what if the engine forced a ditching? I know its not exactly safe to have debris raining down on the populace but I think we should be glad this happened over land and near DEN airport!

Hey VASAviation, on the same day a Boeing 747 freigher outbound from Maastricht/Aachen airport also had an engine failure raining down engine bits on a residential neighbourhood. Could you also do that as a video?

About time to put the kibosh on that “souls on board” question, whether it’s 20 or 200 should make no difference in how ATC handle the emergency, one would hope. Using the word “souls” rather than “people” sounds a bit pessimistic as well. In a worst case situation they’re going to refer to the documents anyway to get an exact count. It’s not like it’s the 1930’s still where they may have had no idea who was addressing them over the radio and needed to clarify. Just saying.

Uncontained engine failure and landing heavy on a single engine? Wow. Kudos to the pilots for keeping a cool head.👏🏻 This was not an easy landing, and the fact that no lives were lost-both passengers and crew but also those within the debris field-is in and of itself a miracle.🙏🏻
