As the 777 began its taxi out, the right engine of flight 908 bound to MIA catch fire, immediately the cockpit crew were advised and the cabin crew in seconds evacuate the aircraft . Nobody was injured.
Anybody from EZE who can give us more information?

I think this happen 10 days ago and it was on the take-off roll, not during taxi. Three days later a very similar incident -- including evac -- in EZE, this time to a UA 763 departing for ORD.

Old news. Happened March 11. Excerpts of an information file to AA pilots:
--------------------
AA908 experienced a fuel nozzle failure on the right engine that caused a fire resulting in an aborted takeoff and a successful evacuation of 206 passengers and 14 crew. A few passengers suffered minor injuries.

The Captain initiated the abort at approximately 110KIAS.

The passengers were reported calm throughout the evacuation.

The passengers were off the aircraft by the time the cockpit crew opened the cockpit door to exit the aircraft.

The CA exited door 4L after walking through the cabin to ensure it was clear.

* Fuel line that was connected to missing nozzle.
* Nozzle found on the runway covered in foam.
* Combustion chamber showing missing fuel nozzle.
(lots of "torn" metal)

I had not heard about this. Do you have info on another AA 777 that lost an engine on takeoff
from JFK several months ago? Heard one report, then nothing more.

This was already discussed in two separate threads two weeks ago.

how many in flight shutdowns would it take for a large 777 operator like AA to lose ETOPs certification??
