So far the only other thing I can find on this incident is this link:

Great... I get to fly with them in a couple weeks. Are the jets being overworked or something?
I am still not the least bit worried but now its in the back of my mind.

Anyone else have any more info? Must have been fairly routine if there isn't much information on the incident.
Glad everything went OK.

Can't say I've ever heard of 'Jets being overworked' most, if not all, commercial aircraft are designed for high levels of utilisation. Most likely cause would be FOD with maintenance or manufacturing issues much remoter possibilities.

While engine failure/fires are relatively rare they do happen. Reading between the lines of the link you posted, it sounds remakably similar to the recent event at MAN involving a Thomsonfly B757. Yes it can appear dramatic but flight deck crews train for this, and as appears to be the case both in this instance and at MAN, was dealt with professionally
and sucessfully.

I agree with you there, I do feel fully confident in the crews abilities in this situation, the "overworked" comment was more just to throw out there and see what people thought I guess.

I am sure you will enjoy your flight, things like that happen once a while, great job by everyone.... remembered when a WS 737-2 had a complete hydraulic failure after T O out of YHM, we had to get them with a tug ...... longest tow ever.... and news media were just waiting out side like some vultures to blow up the story.....

Cheers,
