Does anyone know the tail number of the ua 747-400 that had an engine out on takeoff from SFO on 6-28-1998? Ft 863 almost hit the mountain?

http://www2.ntsb.gov/ntsb/query.asp finds no 747 with an incident on that date.

In fact, there is no record of a 744 incident in the US for that year. The only 747 incident listed for SFO in the 1990-2004 period is this one http://www2.ntsb.gov/ntsb/brief.asp?ev_id=20031122X01939&key=1. United, but no engine out.

If you can pin down the incident you should find it there, including the reg.

They list non fatal stuff too and this sounds like it should definitely have been investigated by the NTSB.

Good luck!

I thought the NTSB website only listed accidents.
An engine out would be an occurance if there were no injuries and it was only a return to land without "equipment" call out, and not even rate an incident listing. That'd make it very hard to trace unless you know someone in the SFO FSDO

Avioniker, I agree that an engine out is not an "accident", but would the NTSB not have gotten involved if they almost hit a mountainside?

Not unless it was reportable as an accident and even then they often delegate the investigation to the FAA's local FSDO. No report is not a surprise to me.
Almost hitting a mountain is a subjective opinion and if they didn't hit it that's not worthy of consideration unless a "near-miss" report was filed.
I don't expect you'll find anything on this occurance in any public records.
