Remark Photographer
9M-MRI (cn 28416/155) About 10 seconds after liftoff from runway 19R something happens with the left engine. Alot of smoke and fragments of metal and other material falls down on the runway. At first the pilots don't get any indications in the cockpit and plan to go on to Kuala Lumpur. Then we decide to call Arlanda duty officer to make sure that they have noticed the pieces from the engine on the runway. Shortly after that the pilots requests fueldump and return to ARN safely.

This is one to share with a few friends at work, so thanks. Anyone has wondered about similarities between this incident(Is that the Trent 800?-not certain) and the A380's recent issues with their Trent 900's? Just curious.

A visitor from Australia posted Sun May 30, 2010:
Incredibly sharp, well focussed and well framed, a brilliant shot even if the aircraft was operating normally. The timing (partly luck) showing the engine problem makes this a once in a lifetime shot.

A visitor from Australia posted Tue May 25, 2010:
I think you'll find that the engine has not merely failed, but disintegrated!

No birdstrike and it was not the engine itself. If I remember correctly it was coating or insulation from the engine cowling.

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 27, 2008:
This is really scary, considering im an uncompanied minor, but it is good to know what happened, so airplanes always check the engines.

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 23, 2008:
I think this picture looks awesome! great footage. I like how you can see the big picture and see the debris and smoke.

A visitor from India posted Thu April 24, 2008:

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue April 8, 2008:
Fantastic shot with lots of details. My compliments to those who have called in the duty officer, pieces on the runway can cause major problems for incoming and outgoing traffic.

A visitor from Canada posted Tue April 1, 2008:
Beautiful work !!!

A visitor from Sweden posted Mon March 31, 2008:
The possible reason why it's no rudder deflection is that the image is taken about one second after the "boom", the pilots have not reacted yet.

A visitor from United States posted Fri March 21, 2008:
Quite interesting that there's no right rudder deflection, as certainly the #1 engine had lost power at this point. Very nice photo!

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 17, 2008:

This picture clearly states that we, plane spotters, are NOT criminals or suspects whatsoever but pure aviation fans. Frederik's attitude clearly showed that - spotters should be respected and taken as friends nearby airports and NOT foes. The shot itself was precise - great lighting, crispness and richness of details of #1 engine going bezerk. Regards for the shot AND attitude Frederik !

A visitor from United States posted Sun November 5, 2006:
Excellent Capture!!! Better to dump the fuel and get back on the ground, pay for a new engine from GE (or RR) to be brought in and have a tech crew look over the starboard wing. And pay hotel bills for the PAX until a replacement can be brought in or have them rebooked elsewhere.

A visitor from Germany posted Sun November 5, 2006:
