More trouble for Rolls-Royce
May 17th, 2011 by elisa

A plane carrying 136 people had to make an emergency landing in Singapore on Monday.  The Cathay Pacific Airbus A330-300 landed safely after aborting the flight 20 minutes after take-off for Jakarta in Indonesia.

Cathay Pacific said the plane’s crew shut down one of the engines after receiving a warning that it had stalled.

“Fire services met the aircraft on arrival. The aircraft stopped on the taxiway and sparks from the number two engine were reported, they were doused by fire extinguisher.” said an airline spokesperson.

This is the second emergency landing involving a Rolls-Royce engine in six months. Last year, all of the Qantas Airbus A380 fleet were grounded for safety checks on their Rolls-Royce engines after an emergency landing.

“Cathay Pacific and Rolls-Royce are investigating the incident which has been reported to the Hong Kong civil aviation department,” said a spokesman for Cathay Pacific.
