Does anyone else know about the BWIA L10-11 tristar emergency landing in the
Azores due to a engine failure. The flight left London and was bound for
Trinidad. BWIA really needs to buy new widebodied aircraft like the
A330-200/300 or the 767-300/400.

Yes it landed with two engines, we talked about it in a local aviation mailing list. The ATC in service at the time gave us some details, not a big deal, just one engine less.

The #1 engine had a gearbox failure. The shaft for the FFR had failed. A replacement L1011 was sent from Trinidad and the PAX arrived at POS early the next morning, it was newsworthy because some former Lord Chancellor from London was on the flight.

I understand that the L1011 replacement is down to 2 aircraft. The A332 or the B764.

This emergency landing had nothing to do with the age of the a/c. Remember the 777 emergency landing a couple weeks ago is SFO?? How dumb do you have to be to attribute EVERY emergency landing of an older a/c to the age of the aircraft! A well maintained aircraft of any age can be reliable, a poorly maintained aircraft of any age can be unreliable!! Get over it!
