Additional pieces of the HPC were found inside the engine and sent for metallurgic examination. The disk web was not an area that required routine inspections, so the crack on the accident disk went undetected.
Five of the eight door exits were initially blocked by flight attendants, which was appropriate given the hazards associated with the smoke, fire, and unusual attitude of two slides.
Flight data recorder FDR data showed that about 28 seconds elapsed between the start of the engine failure and the time of the spar valve closure, and Boeing estimated that about 97 gallons of fuel had spilled onto the runway during this time.
This separation of the tailplane caused the aircraft to pitch rapidly nose down. The spar valve terminates fuel flow to an engine after it is shut down.
The left engine was shut down as part of the engine fire checklist, but the right engine continued operating for about 43 seconds after the captain's evacuation command.
He had a total flying hours of 3, hours, in which hours were on the type. At the time of the accident, he had accumulated a total flying hours of 9, hours, in which 1, hours were on the type. Later the captain joined the passengers at the terminal and told them, that they had suffered a catastrophic failure of the left hand engine.
FAA It is recommended that the Federal Aviation Administration require that Boeing modify the design, for the Boeingof the indirect ceiling light assemblies, their associated attachments, and their immediate surroundings to ensure that the fluorescent tubes, or their fragments, will be retained in a survivable impact.
The flight recorder was later taken to United Kingdom for further analysis. The FAA reported on Sep 9th that the left hand engine caught fire during the departure roll, aircraft stopped on the runway and was evacuated via slides, 5 persons received unknown injuries.
Investigators stated that recovery from this dive was impossible. FAA and EASA It is recommended that the Federal Aviation Administration and the European Aviation Safety Agency, in conjunction with Boeing and Rolls-Royce, introduce interim measures for the Boeingpowered by Trent engines, to reduce the risk of ice formed from water in aviation turbine fuel causing a restriction in the fuel feed system.
The CVR recorded a sound similar to an interphone call from the cabin to the flight deck, but the flight crewmembers most likely did not answer the call because they were focused on securing the left engine and deciding whether to evacuate.
After the initial examination of the high pressure compressor stage 8 pieces by the NTSB materials laboratory, they were sent to the GE Aviation Material Laboratory for further evaluation along with the stage 8 disk that was removed during the engine disassembly.
This is because of the difficulty of interpreting the photographic plate details resulting from the complex structure. The unusual attitude of two slides the 3R and 4R slides resulted from the jet blast coming from the right engine while it was operating. These inspections can be performed at the piece part, rotor and module levels, as well as on-wing.
The pieces of the high pressure compressor recovered on site were first sent to the NTSB material laboratory for initial metallurgical examination.
