ANZ 767 Engine Failure

Sun Dec 08, 2002 2:10 pm

Just heard on the news the following about NZ132 AKL BNE Engine Failure On Air NZ Jet

An Air New Zealand 767 was forced to return to Brisbane shortly after take-off after one of its two engines failed.


NZ132 with 190 passengers and 10 crew on board took off from Brisbane at 10.05am local time, when at about 11 thousand feet there was a loud bang, and the engine shut down.

An emergency ground alert was declared at Brisbane, and the aircraft landed safely at about 10.40.

The airline says there are visible signs of external damage to the engine, and a full assessment will be conducted over the coming days.

A Qantas flight is bringing some of NZ132's passengers back to Auckland, and an Air New Zealand 737 is being sent over to collect the rest.

Anybody know of any more details

Am I correct to assume No casualties?

What QF equipemnt was used to ferry people back? My recollection is that Qantas flies 737s out of BNE. Does that still hold true?

A big Bang and a failure...is it possible it's a big birdstrike?? I hear it happens occasionally, and it could hurt engines...not sure though. Skipper?

Qantas flight 25, a Boeing 747-400, departed Brisbane at 1305, one hour behind schedule, for Auckland.

Well done to the pilot's! The 767-200's will leave the fleet next year, this aircraft entered service in 1986!

ZK-NBT,

Are you implying this is an old aircraft?....1986,thats not that old at all.

Have you looked at the age of the 727's that UA and AA were flying?..thats old!

Does anybody know details about the 762s reliability in the ANZ fleet? Personally, I know of several incidents where the 762 that I was scheduled to fly on had to be replaced or was delayed due to technical problems!
Also, does anybody know the rego of this aircraft?

Cheers,

No I was not trying to say that a 16 year old aircraft was old, I was just saying that they will be leaving the fleet next year!  Smile I like the 762.

Those 727's are probably 35 years old that AA and UA operated.

Sheez! With the plane that close to retirement, will they fix it? Seems like some pretty major damage to the wing and fuselage.

How much damage did this aircraft sustain when it ran off the runway at Nadi in 1991?

"So we should all never fly on a 762"

Absolutely, they must be dangerous especially the older ones!  Insane

People seem to be missing the point here that this is about the engine, not the aircraft. Even then the IFSD / Uncontained Failure rate is so low there is really no cause for concern. These things can and will happen from time to time.

I regularly entrust my life to a pair of GEs and I don't intend to stop now.

I still fly planes with mostly 1 engine so I am with all of you who don't feel to crazed out about an engine failure on an airliner. It happens. They train pilots for it. I do hope though that the article in the above link was inaccurate when they stated that the pilot announced they were going to make a crash landing? I understand that he would need to inform them of the situation and tell them they needed to make an immediate landing or something, but I never learned in my multi engine training to say we were going to make a CRASH landing due to an engine failure . . . and that was in a plane that would barely hold itself aloft with 1 engine out . . . not a powerful 767. Does anybody know if the statement in the article was true?

I can almost guarantee that statement was not made by either pilot. We don't make "crash" landings for an engine failure. From 11,000ft it is really no big deal. I can think of several worse places to lose an engine.

A single engine approach and landing is a real non-event in a 767 (which is hugely overpowered). It is mandatory in the UK for all pilots to carry out a takeoff with engine failure at V1 followed by a single engine approach and landing in the simulator every 6 months.

We also do single engine go-arounds from low level and the climb performance remains remarkable even on one engine with high weights and hot temperatures.

Mr Todd described seeing the engine: "The whole side of the metal casing was totally off. And the back of it was disintegrated. Apparently it ate itself out."


(beavis voice)Heh, he said it ate itself out..heheheheh (/beavis voice)

Sorry, that was just too tempting!

"The aircraft's out of action for 16 days...! "

How will that affect NZ's other 767 ops having one a/c on "sick leave"?

744s and 763s are subbing at the moment - I assume one or two of the domestic configured 733s may also be pressed into international service for the next couple of weeks.

The GE CF6 series is having problems with uncontained failures lately that has the NTSB and FAA issuing service bulletins for airlines to inspect them.
