First evacuation for the E190?

Or are we not counting the evacuation that occurred in LAX Set of 2005 after the landing gear mishap?

Slides were not deployed for the LAX incident.

Good Job JB Crew!

The LAX incident was an Airbus, not Embraer.

Quoting TymnBalewne (Reply 8):

The LAX incident was an Airbus, not Embraer.

But both incidents were for Jetblue Airways hence why I asked why jetmarc said "first evac"

However it is cleared up for me, as evac=deployed slides.

Thanks All

I doubt that JetBlue does more than any other airline, they just comply with the regulations, safety should be the number 1 priority on any flight regardless of the carrier.

Hats of to the crew though!

So what happened to require the evacuation? I know there was a fire, but was it an engine, wheels or what?

According to the latest stories an engine caught fire during the landing flare.

Definitely well done by the crew and customers for there not to be a single injury during the evacuation.

Scant info, but a brake/tire problem is much more likely than an engine fire.

This may be a stupid question, but if the engine in question was Engine 1, would the evacuation take place through R1 and R2 or would they utilize all four doors to get everyone out as soon as possible?

The crew decides which exits can be used and which not. If the cabin crew thinks that they are far away enough from the engine, then they can use all exits. Of course it is better to use the right exits to be 100% sure not being affected by the fire. But you can use the left exits as well if the fire isn't too big.

News media would have you think that some airlines, especially regional airlines that have been in the news (hint, hint) have NOT put safety first though. Not necessarily agreeing with this, just saying...

I once flew RSW-JFK on that plane, my longest flight to date on any sort of Embraer equipment. Glad the plane is going to be OK but more importantly glad there were no injuries.

I wonder what caused the engine fire? That's pretty serious, no??

Flying on a AF E190 tomorrow. Good to know its had a safe evac!! lol

Although if it happened landing in Aberdeen tomorrow, with the amount of rain we're having the fire wouldn't have a chance...  Silly

Congratuations to the Flight Crew for a safe landing and evacuation. Good work!! THank god everyone is safe.

So, I think that B6 uses GE CF34-10E engines. Right?

What is the safety recodr on this engine. The CF-34's have been around for ages and I think they have a pretty good record.

Could it have been a MX issue? When did this airplane go in for its last check-up?

Thanks!

I think that the engines overheated due to the fact that the Aircraft was overworked.

Quoting N623JB (Reply 37):

Highly doubtful. If an engine overheated because an aircraft had performed two or three flights beforehand, it would have serious implications on the engine manufacturer. Aircraft engines are designed to be durable, and should be able to (normally) operate numerous flights in a single day.

Not to mention that the FAA has strict standards on engine endurance in order to certify them for use on aircraft operating in the US - particularly by a US carrier. Let's not sensationalize the incident and throw the engine under the proverbial bus. It was a rare incident, and hopefully the investigation will reveal the real cause.

No pictures, but she's sitting on the GA ramp just west of the UP hangar (usually where you would find some cargo aircraft parked). Quite uneventful, with no visible damage to the exterior of the aircraft (engine included - the affected engine was #1).
