A Singapore Airlines 777-300er turned back to Singapore after an engine problem. Upon landing, the engine and wing caught fire causing significant damage to the aircraft. Fortunately everyone made it out safely.
The passengers were stopped from evacuating by cabin announcement and waited on board while the fire brigade put out the fire first. Well done to all I'd say. This could have ended differently. They had turned back and flew on for two hours with their "issue" before if I understand correctly?
Holy c***. With the entire wing of a fuel loaded aircraft on fire like that, it was surely a ticking time bomb. Very fortunate outcome.
I think the fire brigade had the fire under control as soon as the aircraft landed. They probably advised against evacuation on account of toxic fumes from firefighting products. This reminds me of the QF A380 emergency landing in Singapore, when they kept the passengers in their seats for 2 hours or so while the fire was being suppressed.
