BA AIRCRAFT MAKES EMERGENCY LANDING AT VANCOVER

A British Airways 747-400 aircraft made an emergency landing at Vancouver International Airport due to an overheating engine.

According to British Airways spokesman John Lampl, one of the aircraft’s four Rolls Royce RB211 engines began vibrating abnormally, which was described by flight crew as an “engine surge”, which forced them to shut down the engine and return to departure airport Vancover.

Bill Yearwood, a spokesman for the Transportation Safety Board, said: “When the plane reached between 10,000 and 11,000 feet there was a temperature exceedance on one of the engines, which caused the pilots to shut that engine down.They continued to climb and dumped fuel, and returned to Vancouver without further event.”

The Transportation Safety Board is working with British Airways to determine what caused the engine surge.
