KE A330 Loses Engine Cowling, Then Debris Hits 737

Tue Jul 03, 2007 4:06 am

This from Korean news agency.

Apperently Korean Air A330-300 (KE662) lost an engine cowling of Engine 1 during landing on RKPK,
Then the debris damaged another KE B737 when it landed on the same runway after the A330.
No injuries.

They closed down the runway for 17 minutes to clean up the debris.

Perhaps it fell off during reverse thrust?

Here's the link to the original news article (in korean)

It probably happened so quickly that ATC did not have a chance to divert traffic on final.

No I can't say I can read that.

It wasn't a real plane, just a dummy. Or maybe the 737 captain to the A330 captain: 'what are you doing, dummy'....

Well, for someone speaking Hungarian, even Korean would be obvious. But being Magyar is a rare feature, I would say  Wink

Hmm... Something similar happened at CDG a few years ago. The result is known to be the end of the Concorde.

Thankfully only a 737 got hurt and no-one inside!

When I read the title, I believed for a second that it had happened in mid-air. Now that would have been scary!  Smile
