Hi guys. Here are some photo's that just arrived. They speak for themselves.

I have one simple question for the mechanics and engineers [or anyone], out there....What do you think would have caused the hole? It looks to me like it "blew out" from the inside!

Looks like FOD with accompanying uncontained engine failure.

Hi Crjmech. Would this hole be behind the hot section of the engine, where the turbine blades are?

If so, it's "amazing" how FOD can make it that far through the engine, before being SHOT right out the side of the tail pipe! I guess some times though, FOD doesn't make it pass the front Compressor Fan blades, and ends up being "spun" out the back of the By-Pass section.

Uncontained turbine blade failure.

Root cause could be fatigue, improper maintenance, running the engine for too long at too high speed and EGT, or combination of several of these factors.

A serious and potentially very dangerous failure.

England to Gambia with most likely a full, cramped charter pax load, that must be stretching an A300B4 to the limit of its performance. This one protested and didn't make it.

It seems like the turbine blade didn't hit the fuselage. They were lucky.

Hopefully TEDSKI won't notice this thread, or we will get another general "comment" about GE engines.  Acting devilish

Good point Preben--lol. I have never seen a turbine blade go through the case before, but that sure is what it looks like to me. Maybe they overtemped it, or maybe it was just tired. But the pictures show a turbine cooked to about medium/well..JT

The remains of G-ASGL's #3 Engine after the LP turbine bearing let go, it sythed off the thrust reverser.

Did it take #4 out with it? I am kind of surprised if it didn't.
