This evening (6/20), Aer Lingus flight 132, had an engine fire during its takeoff roll on Boston's runway 22R.

As the pilots applied power to initiate the takeoff roll, a burst of smoke eminated from the No. 1 (left) engine. Seconds later, the engine erupted in flames. The aircraft aborted takeoff and after several minutes of inspection by the Massport Fire Department, taxied to a gate at Terminal E under its own power.

FYI, for interested BOS spotters. I watched the whole event unfold from a nearby beach and it was quite exciting.

Can you describe it in detail for those of us with vivid imaginations?

Glad it all ended safely, but this will result in more schedule disruption. I guess North American will be getting a call soon.

I'm presuming it was a -300; I don't suppose you noticed which one?

No doubt the NTSB will be interested in this; while (thankfully!) it was nowhere near as dramatic as the AA 767 at LAX last week, I believe the NTSB is looking at failures of CF6 engines, to identify any possible common causes.

I couldn't get the registration from where I was positioned. But, when I go over to work tomorrow, I'll see if I can spot it out for you. The a/c was still parked at gate E5 as of 10:40pm tonight.

Actually it was very funny  Smile
And your over the top response to a joke made it even funnier.

I see that EI-JFK is airborne again after spending a couple of days in Boston being repaired. When an aircraft has a problem such as this away from its homeland, who actually troubleshoots & makes repairs? Just curious.

Thanks
