American B-787 (2-Engine Transport) Loses Engine Over Cold Pacific, Diverts to Cold Bay

10/31/2016 10:36 PM | Chris Hudson (Administrator)

This 787 lost the right engine when a fuel line broke enroute from Shanghai to Chicago.  They diverted to Cold Bay, Alaska (PACD or CDB, in airline lingo).  This video shows the whole event from last week, put together from various sources, by a retired airline pilot.  Note the irony of the Ramsey Lewis Trio, playing "A Hard Day's Night."  You may actually have that album....

The passengers were on the plane for about 10 hours after it landed in CDB, so the crew took them out on the ramp for walkaround tours.

The passengers and flight attendants left CDB on a chartered Alaskan Airlines 737.  The pilots stayed with the plane until it was fixed about 2 days later, then they flew it to DFW.  Crew earned their pay this trip.....
