UA 897 IAD ZBAA (Beijing) Engine Fire


Haven’t found a web source yet, saw at lunch one of the cable channels following UAL897 currently burning fuel to return to IAD after experiencing an engine fire.


landed safely



If interested, Here is local NBC news coverage of the non-event.

Edit to note that is seems to be a bit more of an event as the engine fire sparked a brush fire and the runway is currently closed.
