View Full Version : Hawaiian Fire

The news had video of a Hawaiian 767 that apparently landed in SEA last night with the No. 1 engine on fire. Lousy video but it looks like a fairly large fire. It was a ferry flight so it didn't make much news. Anyone have any details. Did it start on short final? The news story below has some details but they didn't even get the correct engine so I doubt anything else. Sounds like a compressor stall and fire while in reverse. Pretty rare.

I thought the tail looked like an A330; article says so, to.

Also: pretty sure Hawaiian's 767s have winglets...this didn't.

I wouldn't call it a "fire;" it just looks like a steady-state compressor stall. He's obviously at low speed; I guess that's why we get out of reverse by 80 knots. :o

Here's a video of a Thompson 757-300 in a steady-state compressor stall after swallowing a bird on takeoff. As soon as he goes to idle, stall is gone.
