American Airlines plane catches fire on O’Hare runway; minor injuries reported

Размещено
 
CHICAGO -- An American Airlines flight was forced to abort its takeoff at O'Hare Airport due to a mechanical issue before part of the plane caught fire Friday afternoon, forcing the passengers and crew to evacuate by the emergency chutes. American Airlines said the plane aborted takeoff due to an "engine-related mechanical issue," and the 161 passengers and nine crew deplaned on the runway. Seven passengers and one flight attendant reported minor injuries and were transported… (wgntv.com) Ещё...

Amazing. Look at all the open, empty overhead compartments in the passenger-shot video. It also appears that Mr. Cardenas was more concerned about filming the event than quickly evacuating the aircraft. People: leave your stuff behind. Evacuate the aircraft as quickly as possible. People are going to get killed over this kind of stupidity. You'll get a check from the airline to cover your bags and your phone if they're lost!

Look at the stupid asses tossing there carryon down the chute first and then jumping. About the time one of them hit me it would reside elsewhere along with the person throwing it off.

People are so selfish and stupid that could have gone bad real quick with all of the fuel spilling out.

An update on this can be read at http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-ohare-plane-fire-engine-disk-failed-20161029-story.html. Ditto to the comment to that article by concernedcitizen2013, "A tip of the hat to the American Airlines flight crew who can be seen in the videos running back to the danger to assist passengers."

According to this story, one piece of the turbine disk was found in a UPS warehouse (that luckily was not operating during the day) over 1/2-mile away, after penetrating the roof of that building and landing inside, still hot.

The passengers and crew aboard this aircraft were very lucky.

Going forward, will uncontained failures be an ongoing issue for aging fleets?

I hope not, but hope doesn't count at V1 or V2 on the takeoff roll with a heavy aircraft. I say this not sardonically: no matter whether a 767 has the balls to climb through V2 on one engine or not and execute a successful go around... Safety and performance is the goal here.

IMHO the 767-300 is an invaluable aircraft for American and various fleets. It is known that the older CF6 series are susceptible to failure. (Note: N330AA at LAX) https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/pictures-ge-investigates-cause-of-american-airlines-boeing-767-200-uncontained-cf6-80a-engine-207118/

Perhaps these valuable dash 300 aircraft can be retrofitted with the 767-400's GECF6-80C2B8F engines. Also, in seeking a long-term performance solution for dash 300s couldn't airlines use the General Electric GEnx for the 767-300? Wouldn't the lower fuel burn and MX costs on the newer engine subsidize the upgrade?

This guy thought it was a good idea to record a potential loss of life.

I also noticed open & empty overhead bins, some people took the time to grab their stuff first possibly putting lives at risk. If I were there I would've shoved those jerks out the door & onto the slide. SMH

I have a problem with people taking extra time to gather their things (or even taking their bulky things that use up space). I don't have an issue with recording a video while evacuating. That can be done without using any extra space or slowing things down. It'd probably be more of a disruption for him to have figured out a way to stow the phone than simply hold it like he most likely was doing anyway. Holding it while recording is not significantly different from holding it while not recording.

Chicago's O'Hare airport runway closed due to smoking aircraft

(CNN)A runway at O'Hare International Airport in Chicago was closed Friday afternoon due to a disabled aircraft, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a tweet.

Video tweeted by a witness on the ground at the airport showed an airliner with a large tower of smoke rising from the right side of the plane. The video also showed one of the emergency slides being deployed.

Interfering with evacuation of an aircraft should be a federal crime, like smoking in a lavatory. Why not lock overhead bins during takeoff and landing-better yet during the entire flight.

Reports this morning are the engine parts were found 2920ft down the runway near the UPS building.

Somehow they need to make it a felony for passengers to open an overhead compartment and/ or attempt to retrieve belongings during an aircraft emergency evacuation

Andrew, my family was scheduled to fly that day on 191. I had a premonition the night before and canceled their flight. Instead I put them on a UA which left an hour before 191.

The fire spread and grew from there. The video on CNN shows the outer half of the right wing melted and touching the ground. Pause the video at 0:08.
