A Philippine Airlines Boeing 777-300 (registration number RP-C7775) had a right engine fire after takeoff from LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) shortly after 11:15 am today.

The Manila-bound Flight 113 landed safely back at LAX about 45 minutes after takeoff.

777 engine fire was visible on the ground

Smoke from the engine was clearly visible to people observing the event from the ground. Inside the cabin, passengers were filming the incident. Banging sounds could be heard from inside the cabin, something to be expected since the misfiring engine was still running while on fire.

Emergency landing back to LAX

The heavily loaded 777 bound for Manila performed an emergency landing back to LAX. The tires to deflated on landing. However, the Fire Department was quickly in place to cool down the tires with water.

The plane was safely on the runway 25L at LAX within about 45 minutes after the inflight engine fire started. After landing the plane taxied off the runway on its own, where it was met by emergency services.

Passengers reported there was very little information from the pilots during the event. The announcement from the cockpit was that they were headed back to Los Angeles, but didn’t explain why to the passengers. According to passengers, the flight attendants appeared frantic getting the cabin ready for landing on such short notice.

How pilots compartmentalize procedures during emergencies

Pilots often have their hands full in situations such as this. There is often little or even no time for a full passenger explanation of what is going on with the airplane. Pilot passenger announcements are given when there is time to do so.

Why so little emergency information from the pilots sometimes?

Some passengers on the Philippine flight complained the pilots gave them very little information.

Here’s why you don’t necessarily get too much information from the cockpit during emergency events, such as this one. Pilot procedures are very straight forward in regards to how emergency priorities are handled. Items are taken care of in a certain succession. This ensures safety during the emergency at all times.

Multi-tasking an airplane emergency involves safely multi-tasking the many things simultaneously happening in the cockpit. Safety remains the #1 priority.

First, the pilot must avigate. Avigate means to fly the airplane, maintain full control, while taking care of the emergency situation.

The next priority is to navigate. Navigate means to know where you are at all times and where you are going, from point A to B.

Communicate is the last thing in priority order. Talking to Air Traffic Control, coordinate with the company, and talk with the flight attendants are all important communication items that have to be accomplished.

Last, the pilot will pick up that microphone and give his or her passenger announcementabout what’s going on with the emergency.

As an outside observer of this event, but with good knowledge of airline flight crew emergency procedures, it appears that the Philippine Airlines pilots and flight attendants were performing their job well.
