    Multiple buildings on fire after plane crashes near Teterboro Airport in Carlstadt, New Jersey in Unites States Monday afternoon.

    QF94 engine fire 2hrs out of LAX

    Friday night's QF94 LAX-MEL;

    A MELBOURNE-bound Qantas flight has avoided midair disaster after one of its engines caught fire nearly two hours after taking off.

    Australian Transport Safety Bureau spokesman Michael Walker confirmed the Qantas flight was forced to land.

    By all accounts handled very professionally by Qantas. Passengers expected to be on the way to MEL by lunch time Sat. local time.

    Best to keep one's discussions a little more discreet whilst flying these days;

    http://www.smh.com.au/world/londonbo...10-gwotks.html

    Or give a little more consideration as to the contents of your conversation...

    Yet another uncontained engine failure

    China Eastern flight MU736 out of SYD for PVG last night experienced an uncontained left (port) engine failure shortly after take off from Rwy 34L at approx. 10:40 UTC (20:40 local) Sunday 11th June, returning safely to SYD after spending some time off the coast before landing. This departure takes it initially out over the inner western city suburbs and they were indeed fortunate the starboard engine seemed to perform flawlessly.

    http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/new...85518992c7be85

    The flight can be tracked here: https://www.flightradar24.com/2017-0...x/-33.9,150.93 (please let me know if this isn't the case)

    Aircraft details: Airbus A330-243, Reg B-6099, Hex 78045d, Build 2008, Engines 2 x RR Trent 772B-60

    'Channel 7’s Sunrise is reporting that residence (sic) in the south-west Sydney area of Macarthur reported a low-flying aircraft and “a banging noise” overhead.'

    Thick fog here this morning is affecting flights so I'm not sure if any parts are likely to be found, if any exist.

    ****There's now audio available of the initial exchange between pilot communicating and ATC to advise them of the issue. ATC ask twice (in order to make sure they've heard correctly), then want a tad more 'technical' information before advising to climb to 5,000 ft whilst continuing present heading;

    https://au.news.yahoo.com/nsw/a/3590...control/#page1

    I'm not convinced the pilot had the slang term for 'broken' pronounced quite correctly or that ATC were too impressed. As we are aware ATC need as much detail as possible in order to organise and render any and all assistance to the pilots. This controller has come as close as he can to a rebuke bearing in mind their predicament. What was said in the crew room afterwards and will be in the following investigations would be interesting to know.
