Does anyone know any details about the recent RR trent engine failure on the MAS 777 takeoff (9M-MRI) out of Stockholm? My guess is that these were LPT blades exiting the engine. Where would MAS get a spare engine being so far away from its home maintenance base?

MH 772 Lost Engine Parts At Takeoff @ ARN (by Bjornstrom Nov 3 2006 in Civil Aviation)

It's all there. Especially Steve's posts, as he was there and worked on the plane post-landing.

TristarSteve was there. He is also pictured in the gen_av thread looking into the ass of the engine. Apparently it was a lot of smoke but not a huge deal in the end. Some parts to change.

MAS was planned to fly a freighter in with the new engine during the weekend.

I thought, from what TristarSteve is saying, that the 744 is only bringing parts, and that the engine is not damaged, only needing a new firewire etc. It will also require a new D-Duct no doubt!

Flying would be easy if it wasn't for the ground

Correct. I reread the thread and it's not an entire engine. It will need new firewire and USB though.

Maybe they'll get the Firewire 800 and USB 2.0 upgrade at the same time

EDIT: Of course, they can't touch that 100/1000Mbps full-duplex Ethernet that the Airbii are now sporting  Wink

You should have seen the size of the crate that the D Duct came in. It was on a 20ft pallet, and overhung the sides by a few inches. It took the Air Atlanta loadmaster a long time to turn it round and get it out the door.
I have some pictures. Must learn how to post them.

Ok a picture of the pallet inside the B747 has been sent off to the Airliners censors.
And also a shot of TF-ATZ parked in front of VP-BQH another B747-200 with RB211 engines.

Well Done. TF-ATZ used to be our G-BDXP which I flew several times during 96-98. It was one of three combis (XM,XN and XP). Good to see it's still flying, unlike XO which was cut up in AMS a couple of years ago!  Sad

Nice photo TristarSteve  bigthumbsup ! There certainly is a lot of area missing from the inner part of that "D" duct!

Well to conclude the storey

On Wed night we took MRI out for engine runs and everything worked as normal. It finally departed ARN 0347 Thur 09 Nov on a ferry flight (but full of Cargo) back to KL.

Been a hectic 5 days now I can have a day off
