An Aerostan Boeing 747-200, registration EX-47001 performing flight KW-4053 from Macau (China) to Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan), was climbing out of Macau's runway 16 when the crew stopped the climb at about 10,000 feet due to the #2 engine (JT9D, inboard left hand) emitting bangs and streaks of flames. The crew shut the engine down and returned to Macau for a safe landing on runway 34 about 40 minutes after departure.

Macau's Civil Aviation Department (AACM) reported the aircraft returned to Macau due to the failure of the #2 engine, the aircraft landed safely. After taking the relevant preparations and precautions according to the operation manuals an empty dispatch of the aircraft on three engines will be approved.

The aircraft remained on the ground in Macau for about 32.5 hours, then departed climbing to a maximum FL276 (8400 meters).

In a report submitted with AACM the airline reported the crew received an engine #2 fire warning, worked the related checklists and shut the engine down. The aircraft dumped fuel (?) and returned to Macau, where fire services put the engine fire out, the aircraft was subsequently towed to the apron. All the necessary precautions and preparatory works were performed to conduct a three engine ferry flight to Bishkek, which was permitted by the AACM.
