Thomsonfly Engine Failure 23Oct

Tue Oct 23, 2007 10:06 pm

Apparent engine failure on departure and emergency return to ALC.
All seems ok. Relief a/c en route to ALC to collect pax. Sounds like a/c grounded for a while.

Happended around 2100Z A/C G-BYAH ALC-CWL

I didn´t know this. I´ve been on the phone to my boss this morning too, and I had pax on that flight. MyTravel have roughly 40 seats allocated on that flight. Do you know when a/c did take off?

For the record G-BYAH is a RR RB211 powered Boeing 757.

Engine failures on RB211s on 757s are rare indeed! Anymore info like foreign object ingestion etc

Thats the second one this year for Thomsonfly on the 757, how unlucky for them.

Aircraft was G-BYAH, engine caught fire on departure and left a pretty hefty mess according to reports on another forum - it returned to ALC without any problems. Another good job done by the crew.
