According to this FlyerTalk thread http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/catha...7585-cx470-engine-caught-fire.html . It developed a fire in one of the engines thirty minutes into the flight. Apparently the flight had had some issue prior to departure, which indicates the 83min first departure delay ( unless it was a rotation delay ).
The pax had been sent on a replacement aircraft.
Aircraft is a 744 according to FlightStats.
Anybody got the reg ?

The engine made a bomb noise and was actually on fire, not simply stop working.

There were 372 passengers on board a B747-400, delayed for 4 hours, each compensated for USD 25 - flight voucher, NTD 200 - meal, and transportation (since the plane arrive almost 12am).

The flight was CX 470, suppose to depart at around 5:30pm or so.
