You'd have thought that some of the passengers would have noticed and raised a ruckus....

Judging by the photos - it looks like an Air China 747.

Judging by the paint scheme of the fuselage (what you can see of it) and the fact that it has 4 engines - that would fit in...

Cheers,

I think it's unbelieveble that such a known carrier as Air China gets involved into something as bad maintenance. China is going to be one of the biggest marktes in the world for leisure and business and if people see this, they wil not chose for Air China...

Just my 2 cents from a bl**dy hot Holland... (the weather is always wrong  Smile/happy/getting dizzy )

That is truely sad. It's sad that the income of revenue is far more important than people's lives. If I were a passenger and found out that my life had been put in jeopardy like that, all hell would've broken out in China.

I recently watched the Discovery channel's program about the crash of AA Flight #191, the DC-10 that went down at ORD in May 1979.

In a re-eenactment of the TO run, passengers look out the windows to see the No.1 engine busting up and off the wing. Now there is something you don't want to see, especially if you are on the aircraft

The fact that it flew is amazing but the airline/cargo service obviously flys the planes till they crash and burn. I have also heard that CAAC the Chinese airline removes the instruments from the cockpits as they do not believe in electronics. Do a photo search on flight decks on caac.


If Continental had a hub at DFW with nonstop flights I would always fly them, unfortunantely good things take time.

Come on people...

That engine is fodded out. That was either a pterodactyl or it swallowed an RAF Harrier whole. That was not an in-flight occurrence, and no one in their right mind would light the candle on that one.

That looks like somebody took initial evaluation pictures and produced a bogus story.

Miamiair: Thank you.

The engine was victim of a FOD, so it was removed from the A/C.

Maybe it was strapped to prevent it from windmilling in order to make a ferry flight on 3 engines, but I refuse to believe any crewmember would, in his sane mind, take off on a revenue flight with only 3 engines. This could simply lead to grounding the whole frickin' airline if the authorities realized.

It is easy to get some pictures of a fodded engine that was strapped for a ferry flight and use it to destroy an Airline or a country's reputation. Plus this is hardly a reliable source, which takes advantage of the fact that there are so many gullible people on the net to make sensationalistic news.

And apparently it works.

I agree with those who say it sounds bogus - as soon as I read it I was practically heading for snopes.com to see if it's shown up there. (I don't see it, but it might be there somewhere; might not have propogated enough yet though.)

I would think more likely than making a three-engine ferry flight, though, this engine was probably ferried as a fifth engine, which 747's are capable of carrying. You really can't tell much from these pictures, though.

Big problems in replacing big engines in a foreign country. I remember an AN- 124 that sat down at DFW a few years back and had to get a replacement engine flown in from the Ukraine.

Main problem was that Customs would not pass the new engine into the US unless a huge import tariff was paid on it. The other problem was that the maintenance facility had to obtain funds in cash up front from the AN's owners before they would allow the faclities and labor to be used to install the new engine.

That is clearly not an Air China plane. Air China has grey engine cowlings, and this plane has blue ones if you look at the photos close enough. Get your facts straight before naming and shaming!!

I have some serious doubts about this one. First of all, people love to bash Chinese airlines, but although there was good reason back in the 80s, these days Air China is a reputable airline that I am quite certain would not let a revenue flight take off with an inoperative engine. Furthermore, I don't recall hearing anything about this incident in recent memory, and I am fairly sure that something this scandalous would have been pretty big news in the aviation community. Finally, those photographs mean nothing--the engine is just sitting in a hangar next to what appears to be an Air China aircraft. It is not even installed.

I have no idea what the real story behind the photos might be. Maybe it really happened as described, but 20 years ago. Or, more likely, maybe it's just a photo that is totally out of context. I'm sure the truth is out there somewhere...

Yeek! Mommiiieeee.. Make it stop!!!!

Come to think of it, maybe -that's- what caused the FOD'ed engine in the first place--someone jumping into the running engine rather than have to sit next to MJ...  Big grin

The last thing I want is to be on a transcon with passengers yapping their way from one coast to the next. I enjoy the quiet, it is a break from a hectic schedule.
