Caption
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.

The technical quality of the photo is very good... excellant resolution and exposure against the bright background.. The detail of the problem with #1 engine plainly visible and the gear in transit gives the photo a quality of immediacy. All in all... very good.

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.

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.

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.

Great photo with all details of falling debris. Great effort of alerting the airport staff. Glad to know that the aircraft landed safely later

This is really scary, considering im an uncompanied minor, but it is good to know what happened, so airplanes always check the engines.

Was it a bird strike or an engine failure? Great shot!

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

That must have been alot of fuel to dump. I agree with the sentiments of commenters below, wonderful job in contacting the duty manager and alerting them of the debris and being able to tell the crew the left some of number 1 on the runway.

Really great photo, it is very cool you were able to take a shot of a moving air craft without the picture being blurry! Did they figure out what happened to the plane's engine?

I think you'll find that the engine has not merely failed, but disintegrated!

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.

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.
