I imagine the brakes were hot too on the heavy landing.

Anyone know off the top of their head what type of engines are in DL's A330-300's?

PW and GE....the HGW ones have GE and the exNW ones have PW. I haven't been able to get a N number yet so not sure which type this one has.
I know the voices in my head aren't real but sometimes their ideas are just awesome!!!

Looks like it's N822NW, a 3 year old GE A333.

It is actually N806NW ship 3306. The passengers have been swapped onto 3322 to continue onto LHR at 2130 local.

If it was n806nw then it's PW, if it was n822nw then it's GE powered.

Darn it looks serious! That's 3 engine incidents in a row in the past 2 days. Things happen, but man oh man things have been chaotic this week in commercial aviation. Glad everyone is okay and props to the crew for making a safe landing. That would of been something to catch if I was spotting on the south deck today.

I feel better now.

I was fairly sure those engines were Pratt 4000s but the pictures weren't great.

Hence the, perhaps; heavy landing!

Looks like I was confused! :lol: I thought that the poster was inferring that the hot brakes somehow contributed to the engine fire. I need to drink some coffee. :coffee:

N822NW, the aircraft in question, is an A330-302, meaning it has General Electric CF6 powerplants.

False alarm, it was N806NW, an A330-323 powered by Pratt and Whitney PW4168A powerplants.

I guess this is a bad week for GE... at least in terms of statistics catching up with them.

Well since it appears that this was a P&W engine involved and not a GE, maybe the conspiracy theorists saying that GE is on a path of destruction will be held at bay.

But who am I kidding anyway? With the issues regarding Pratt's GTF having been well-documented lately as well as the UA 772 incident, maybe I'll be wrong. :wink2:

On a more serious note, glad they were able to land safely despite a heavy landing and kudos to the fire crews for getting that fire under control real quick.

Really hard to tell in one of the images due to the smoke, but it looks like there is damage to the exhaust area it seems.

Well, that might be the case if you look at the footage actually shot:

https://www.nu.nl/234037/video/vliegtui ... motor.html

I would indeed be in desperate need of new shorts.

A question for you experts. Each engine is equipped with a fire extinguisher system, right? Was the fire too intensive to be extingish by this system?
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

Law of averages I suppose.

It's kinda hard to see from the pictures, but you can tell the engine manufacture on the A330 just by looking at the shape of the engine:

The fire extinguisher system only works under the cowls not through the engine core. Most core fires are oil fires from failed seals or bearing compartments.

Also by pulling the fire handle, you isolate everything to and from the engine.
