Continental jet lands in Houston with just one engine
By MIKE GLENN
Copyright 2001 Houston Chronicle
A Continental 757 was forced to land at Bush Intercontinental Airport late this morning with one engine out, officials said.
The flight, which originated in San Jose, Calif., was able to land without incident at about 11:45 a.m., said Ernest DeSoto, a spokesman for the Houston Airport System.
Airport crews at the scene noticed that smoke appeared to be coming from the engine after it landed. The twin-engine passenger jet was then towed to the gate, where all 185 passengers and crew members safely disembarked, DeSoto said.
The cause of the incident was still being determined this afternoon, DeSoto said.

That's correct, CO doesn't have any scheduled ops between SJC and IAH with 757s.
However, I suspect with the bad weather that's been at Newark recently alot of aircraft that normally aren't used on certain routes are being used because of all of the flight cancellations.
I flew out of Newark yesterday (a quick glance at the departure board showed that over 50% of the flights that CO operated were cancelled yesterday).
The funny thing is that the only equipment that seemed to be operating when we were taxiing and deicing were 757s, 767s, 777s, DC-10s, and a 738 or too. All of the big stuff. Anyway, my guess is to make up for the cancelled flights they used say, a 757 on flights that were normally used by a 733.

Unless this was a charter, it didn't come from SJC. The morning SJCIAH flight, CO1720, operated with the normal 735 both today and yesterday. So that 757 came in from somewhere other than SJC. Given that I'm at home, I can't check the aircraft routing until tomorrow. But I will see if I can find a ship # then.

Nowhere in the original article does it say that the aircraft's scheduled destination was Houston. Flight crew typically like to land shortly after an engine failure, especially in twins. It could have been going somewhere else and had the failure near IAH.

well, if the a/c originated in SJC, it would be headed to one of one of 2 places...IAH or EWR. and since i highly doubt the flight is gonna divert to IAH when its flightplan doenst even come close to IAH, its a safe bet to say that IAH was its intended arrival city in the first place. Also, SJC-EWR routes only uses 737's..usuall 700 series. My guess is that the flight was coming from SJO(San Jose, Costa Rica)

a/c reg # N48127......I got a funny story about that exact aircraft. One time we were loading the back bin(3 & 4) and because one of the other guys had positioned the beltloader inproperly, I fell out the bin head first LOL. No major injuries luckily except for a sprained wrist and shoulder. I know I was a dumbass for falling out, but hey.....oh well. It's pretty funny now when I look back. Now, everytime I see that a/c in EWR I laugh to myself becuse of my own stupidity. Ok, Well Im done...just felt the need to share that will you's. We now return to your regularly scheduled thread...
