The right engine of the Boeing 777-200 type passenger plane belonging to United Airlines, with 231 passengers and 10 crew members in the US state of Colorado, caught fire shortly after taking off from Denver International Airport. The engine parts of the plane that made the Denver-Honolulu flight fell into the garden of the houses in the Broomfield area.
The pilots managed to land the plane safely at the airport. After the incident, the question “What would happen if the aircraft engine caught fire in the air” came up again.
Haberturk TV broadcast Association participating in the Turkey Airline Pilots (TALPA) President Hüseyin Murat Ersoy, a large-bodied aircraft flew single engine could save 180 minutes.
Ersoy said: “Engines are rotating at very high speeds and a gravitational force occurs. In the meantime, when an object hits the propellers, structural damage may occur. A fragmentation may occur.
In this case, there is a fragmentation and damage to the information received. With the explosion, fragmentation occurs in the engine.
We receive training against such scenarios twice a year. As a worst case scenario, we are also trained on the complete breakdown of the engine. In this case, the plane can fly with a single engine. Under normal conditions, the Boeing 777 type aircraft can stay in the air for 180 minutes with a single engine, just as in this aircraft. There are areas on the ocean between continents that can be descended for this time and distance. “
