More facts please. I never heard about this event. Was this a crash? How many died? How many survivors? For those of us out there that don't know all of our airport/airline abbreviations, which airport? Which airline? I did not know a 777 had ever crashed.

An Emerite (is that how you spell it?) 777-300 blew an engine on takeoff before v1, I believe, maybe it did a go-around, but anyways, the engine was to bits and pieces, some blades even went into the fuselage. Try doing a search on this forum, there was a post after it happened.

777 never had a accident, although they have few incident.
The 777 which had a incident was involving a Emirates B777-300 at Melbourne Airport few months ago. The jet was bound for Singapore and Dubai, when the engine explodes. All passengers and crews got out the plane safely.
