Thai Air 773 Held At BNE For Engine Replacement

Mon Jul 15, 2013 5:16 am

Just thought I would give heads up to any plane spotters from Brisbane.

My brother in laws Aunty works for Thai customer service, not sure the full story but apparently last week HS-TKD needed a jump start from Qantas equipment for Engine.. Sounds like that worked but after pushback takeoff was aborted and engine (possibly blew or needs maintenance?)

Unsure but apparently 14 engineers on the way from BKK to replace / fix engine possibly they already arrived today so plane might already be fixed and departed but if it's not it was still sitting yesterday outside cargo terminal awaiting to be fixed.

Take a ladder can get some good shots from empty land next to terminal. Good luck
