Last Update: June 29, 2016 / 15:26:15 GMT/Zulu time
A passenger booked onto flight PW-433, Kilimanjaro (Tanzania) to Dar es Salaam directly, reported that following the rejected takeoff the passengers immediately left the aircraft onto the runway. There was visible fire at the left hand engine.
The airline reported: "on noticing the alarm the pilot immediately initiated standard operating procedures to extinguish the fire and taxied the aircraft back to the apron." The aircraft had already performed flight PW-432 from Dar es Salaam to Kilimanjaro, then flight PW-2433 from Kilimanjaro to Zanzibar that day and was scheduled to continue to Dar es Salaam following the intermediate stop in Zanzibar.
On Jun 29th 2016 the French BEA reported based on information from Tanzania's Authorities, that 5H-PWB rejected takeoff at high speed just below V1 when the left hand engine caught fire. The occurrence has been rated a serious incident and is being investigated by Tanzania's Accident Investigation Board.
