A332 Reg. PT-MVF
Flight rescheduled for Jan 25 with around 20 hours of delay.
161 Passengers + Crew
New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

Incident: TAM A332 at Paris on Jan 24th 2012, engine shut down in flight

By Simon Hradecky, created Tuesday, Jan 24th 2012 23:52Z, last updated Wednesday, Jan 25th 2012 09:40Z
A TAM Linhas Aereas Airbus A330-200, registration PT-MVF performing flight JJ-8055 from Paris Charles de Gaulle (France) to Rio de Janeiro Galeao,RJ (Brazil) with 160 passengers, was climbing out of Charles de Gaulle Airport's runway 27L when the crew stopped the climb at FL160, squawked emergency, dumped fuel and returned to Charles de Gaulle Airport for a safe landing on runway 27L about 80 minutes after departure.

The airline reported the aircraft suffered a technical problem. The flight has been rescheduled for Jan 25th and is estimated to depart Paris with a delay of 19.5 hours, the passengers were taken to hotels.

Passengers reported the aircraft was about 10 minutes into the flight when a loud bang was heard followed by serious vibrations and an announcement from the flight deck that the right hand engine (CF6) had failed and needed to be shut down. The aircraft would dump fuel and return to Paris.
