Re: BA 744 blown engine on takeoff from PHX

"blown engine" in your title is quite misleading. Engine was intentionally shut down and returned with no issue. Problem could have been just a bad oil pressure indication or high temp reading causing a checklist prompt to shut down and return.

Were you on board the flight? Do you have proof it "Blew"? see how that can work. Video shows flameout. That does not mean it blew. Did they find any parts?

I know you guys are the experts on this, so we'll all see what becomes of this development.

Exactly, no real details yet, what happened and the cause yet to be determined and/or reported. Even the news program indicated "more to come" in its commentary. Never mind that passenger(s) thought dumping fuel might have contributed. A flameout, if that's what it was, could be all kinds of things. Drawing any conclusion based on the little information available, such as a blown engine, is premature.

Why would an aircraft dump fuel on takeoff roll? Again, we will see. :)

No aircraft dumps fuel on a 'take off roll' think of the consequences of that, it dumps fuel at an appropriate altitude not on a 'take off roll' your being as sensationalist as in your original headline.

I suggest that you wait until confirmation to find out either way but seeing that your dismissing comments that have been made by other posters it seems that you want it to be something more serious than what actually occurred.

Exactly. I guess witnesses have no credibility anymore. :(

Title needs to be changed. Or even eliminated. These are common ocurrences.

Just read the story. Engine shut down after take off and aircraft returned. I was a BA B744 engineer for many years in Europe. Can someone explain what a blown engine is?. Is this an American slang for "shut down". We don't use the term here. Or is there something that fox news does not yet know.
