Remark Photographer
N330AA (cn 22330/166) Parked inside a hangar at LAX following a spectacular engine failure and fire while conducting an engine test on June 2, 2006. Look at the flap just to the left of the engine mount and you can see how warped the flap became from the extreme heat. Funny though, the aircraft rests on brand new tires.

Sad that it never graced the skys again, so much history scrapped, always makes me sad to see planes like this..

A visitor from - posted Sat May 23, 2009:
The 767 was undergoing a high-power run when the #1 engine had a HPT failure. The HPT let go and ended up puncturing the left wing, #1 engine, and peppered the fuselage. The L/H wing punctures went through to the fuel cells and caused an aircraft fire to erupt. One section of the turbine disk exited the engine and sliced through the air conditioning bay, lodging itself in the outboard side of the #2 engine. Two days later, another 18 inch piece of the turbine was found about half a mile from the site of the explosion.

What happened to it??? The back of it is DESTROYED!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon November 10, 2008:
Unfortunately, after 2.5 years, she is being scrapped now at LAX, as of 9 november '08.

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 15, 2007:
Poor 762! They should repair it. they already put the tires on it might as well finish the job.

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 29, 2007:
Jesus Christ! The back of it is char-broiled!

A visitor from United States posted Sun January 7, 2007:
Very intriguing! It kinda looks how I felt when I broke my arm. Lets hope this beautiful bird lives to Fly Another Day! ;)

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 10, 2006:
Now we all can really see what the extent of the damage was! Its still a beautiful plane. Hope it will fly again.

A visitor from United States posted Sun August 6, 2006:
New tires were put on so the aircraft could be moved. the old ones were mush. excellent photo. unfortunately this old beauty will be written-off.

A visitor from Costa Rica posted Mon July 10, 2006:
Amazing! i've never heard about how to cook an airplane!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon July 3, 2006:
What a contrast on this 767-223/ER

A visitor from Germany posted Mon July 3, 2006:
WOW!!! What a major damage on the fuselage, hope they will be able to repair it!! Great shot Michael!

A visitor from Australia posted Mon July 3, 2006:
Pity... Now it just looks fit for fire training!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon July 3, 2006:
I imagine that the quality of tyres means that aircraft will soon be back at work again :-)) ?

A visitor from Canada posted Sun July 2, 2006:
It almost looks like the panels just behind 2L started to warp from the fire. What a shame because it looks like after all the effort to get this A/C back into service it will now be W/O. I would be surprised if AA repairs this one with all the 762's they have been parking in the bone yards recently.

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 2, 2006:
Looks really sad. That will be an expensive flap to replace. Good thing no one was hurt and the rest of the plane is still intact.

A visitor from Brazil posted Sun July 2, 2006:
Hey, great shot!

A visitor from Australia posted Sun July 2, 2006:
What a mess. It's so fortunate it happened on the ground, during testing. I'm flying American from Dallas/ Fort Worth to Montevideo in Nov this year,
on a 767, so I feel relieved that this failure is behind them. I've had a few flights on American and enjoyed them all. I even get to fly from San Fransisco to St Louis, on my favourite narrowbody Boeing, a 757. You beauty!! Have you got any good shots of an American 757 at SFO Michael? We hardly ever see a 757 in Oz, which is a real shame.

A visitor from France posted Sun July 2, 2006:
WOW!!!more dirty than air france aircrafts!!!well done!!!...I'm joking of course...it's sad to see this beauty in this condition...good luck for repair and I hope she'll fly again as soon as possible!!!

A visitor from Ireland posted Sun July 2, 2006:
Awesome photo i was very curios to see what this bird would look like after the fire great shot!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun July 2, 2006:
Er whether she will be a write off? This shot makes me think it is not as bad as we all thought.

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 2, 2006:
So are they repairing it?

A visitor from Austria posted Sun July 2, 2006:
What will aa do with the aircraft???

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 2, 2006:
Not everyday you see a charred Seven-Six! Excellent shot!!

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 1, 2006:
Wow!! 5 Stars glad it was a test I presume no one was hert. I hope not.
