SQ 368 engine on fire



Flight SQ 368, on the way to Milan from Changi Airport had to turn back after 2 hours of flying due to engine problem. On landing at Changi Airport, the right engine caught fire. The airport emergency people helped put out the fire.
The airplane was a B777-300ER. There were 222 paxs and 19 crew and none was injured.

BT: Heard thru the grapevine that paxs were informed the airplane had to turn back to SIN due to mechanical issue. When the plane landed safely, the relieved paxs started to applause. Suddenly, the plane engine caught fire and exploded. Paxs were shocked and some ran towards the doors, trying to open them. Cabin crew had to stop these paxs from opening the doors due to safety concern.

"What a pity" is that all you can say?

Is it just me or has there been so many things going wrong in this country recently.

Wasn't there a problem with the lifts somewhere?

Didn't the nose gear of one SIA plane collapse last year?

What is happening in SG?

First world GDP but third world maintenance with an over reliance on foreigners.

Come on SIA,we deserve better!

Already tickets are more expensive than what some other airlines are charging and now this.

Do you not care about the safety of your crew members and passengers?

MH370 and MH17 disasters were pure bad luck but these SIA mishaps are the kind you can avoid.

SIA-A GREAT WAY TO DIE.

Voyage Report:

" Flight returned to SIN. Crew were instructed to prepare
for emergency landing ( land ).

Crew were also instructed to:

- lock & seal all boxes & carts.
- collect headsets*
- collect menu cards* "

Very important to lock & seal... otherwise have to answer to
some CCE why never lock & seal, collect headsets, collect menu cards.
All about saving costs you know... very, very important kpi you know.

* menu cards & earphones collected after landing, after all pax disembarked.

Yes lock everything then evacuate because material objects
are more important than people.

Luckily we didn't have a repeat of the Asiana disaster
though in that case,
more casualties were avoided due to some quick thinking
by the cabin crew,including one gorgeous
Korean stewardess (hate their uniform though).

There's a need to review existing procedures
to ensure things can be done more swiftly during an emergency.

The people on board this particular SQ flight were very fortunate.

This safety thing is only because the airline has to comply
with regulations.
If left alone, lots of areas will be ignored, and the staff will
be nothing more than food servers.

How practical is their attire during evacuation?slippers?sandals?Kebaya?as it is the girls are rather small in size.my luggage probably weighs more.oh well,we will only know when there's a real emergency.

Oh, their attire is very effective.
When they stand on their crew seats, they dont
appear that small.
And after the doors are opened, the kabaya flutters in the breeze
( just like the soft focus adverts.. remember?)
and you will see flashes of pearl white skin..
This helps you locate where the exits are.

Highly effective.

( psst, tell you a secret: they wear shorts )

I hv a near death incident flying wif ...

Years ago, my flt frm FCO-SIN, 3hr + mid flt, B777ER, right engine explode!
The whole aircrafe shocked like tremor!
The cabin lightings and aircon were shut off intermitently.
Blackedout and total silenced!
We were above some snow capped Alps. Winter season.

It was a horrific experience.

After dumping some fuel, We made an emergency landing into IST.

I took photos of e exploded charred engine at e Tarmac.

We stepped down and stayed overnite in IST.

It was a news coverup.
It wasnt reported in e media.

........and I thought the girls wore NOTHING underneath
like the kilt wearing Scots or was it another airline?

Hmmmmmm let me refresh my memory.

Do not know what caused the fire amidst the many presumptions. PM has already posted his comments over Yahoo.com. More to come in the next few days or so. Not a very good omen. SIA had lost its 51 per cent bid for Virgin Australia amidst the Brexit debacle and now this.

It's just an unfortunate incident that
happened during brexit and the Virgin thing.
Don't make it more than what it is.

Just a crazy coincidence,that's all.

Don't be superstitious.

No bad feng shui here.

The passengers thought they were going to die
even though the crew had things under control just like
the turbulence incident involving one MH plane early this month.

Passengers sometimes overreact and the media, responds to this.
Juicy stories 'sell'.
