Hear from my friend work CX.
One of their 777 took an emergency land at Kumming, China.
Engine problem.
CX has shipped an engine and some staff for maintenance.
Anyone can share the detail?

No, I haven't heard about it. Emergency landings happen all the time. BTW, this isn't an accident. It's an 'incident'. Huge difference!

An engine going bad and an emergency landing is not considered an accident. This is how rumors get started, watch the wording on your posts.

If this is true, I hope all the 'ETOPS no-no' and 'engine
failure is so remote' guys are reading it!

Oh yeah, one problem in thousands of hours flown in this engine. I wouldn't touch this engine with a ten foot pole.  


Dear moderators: No.

I did not hear about this, but no doubt I will. I did notice, however that we have a freighter B-HVY flying to Kumning today. I wondered why that was....

The engine might not even have failed. An engine failure is when an engine fails to produce the power that it is rated to provide. This could have been a precautionary shutdown due to a high temp or a low fluid quantity. It could have been due to unusually high vibration. For all those complaining about accidents with ETOPS, IF a situation required a second engine urgently, a precautionary shutdown engine might be restarted. It might not be anywhere near as dire as many make out ETOPS to be.

The aircraft involved was 777-200 B-HNB, which, along with freighter B-HVY should be back in Hong Kong. B-HNB is due to do a flight to SIN later tonight, so it couldn't have been too serious a problem.
