TAP A320 at Lisbon on May 21st 2016, rejected takeoff due to engine failure
Last Update: June 20, 2016 / 13:25:15 GMT/Zulu time
The French BEA reported the occurrence has been rated a serious incident by Portugal's GPIAA and is being investigated by the GPIAA. The BEA provided tail number CS-TPN in error (which is an Embraer ERJ-145).
On Jun 20th 2016 Portugal's GPIAA reported in their preliminary note that the aircraft was accelerating through 96 knots on Lisbon's runway 03 when a loud bang from the left hand engine was heard associated with the loss of thrust from that engine and associated yaw. The crew rejected takeoff, a ENG #1 FAIL indication was active on the ECAM display. While taxiing towards the apron tower informed the crew that emergency services were seeing flames and smoke from the engine. Although no fire indication was active in the cockpit, the crew stopped the aircraft and discharged both fire bottles into the engine. Emergency services reached the aircraft and acted on the left hand engine bringing the situation under control. The aircraft was subsequently towed to the apron, where passengers disembarked through the right hand doors. The occurrence was rated an incident, in the same note the GPIAA stated the aircraft received substantial damage.
