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 ?
