A PAL Philippine Airlines Boeing 777-300, registration RP-C7777 performing flight PR-102 from Manila (Philippines) to Los Angeles,CA (USA) with 361 people on board, was accelerating for takeoff from Manila's runway 24 when the crew rejected takeoff at high speed (about 160 knots over ground) due to the failure of the left hand engine (GE90). The aircraft slowed safely, vacated the runway and became disabled on the parallel taxiway due to a good number of main tyres deflating. The passengers disembarked onto the taxiway and were bussed to the terminal.

The rotation was cancelled.

The passengers were rebooked onto special flight PR-5102 departing Manila the following day (B773 registration RP-C7772) and reaching Los Angeles with a delay of about 17 hours.

The aircraft is still on the ground in Manila about 67 hours (2 days 19 hours) after the rejected takeoff.
