The fire brigade dispatched by Pudong Airport this time is still relatively large. Unfortunately, the fire is really too fast. Moreover, the fire source often burns from the inside of the aircraft, which is not easy to detect. When the open fire is seen, the fire is already very big, and it is difficult to put it out quickly.
Dont doubt that the airport fire fighting is ineffective. The administrative capacity of Shanghai is very efficient.
The damage area of the aircraft is in the rear half of the fuselage. If Ethiopia Airlines contacts Boeing for maintenance plan, it is estimated that it needs to replace almost the whole rear half of the fuselage, and even add the tail stabilizer. Moreover, if the tail flight control, hydraulic pressure and APU are damaged, the replacement cost will be even higher, which will cost a lot of money and time. Moreover, the structural strength of the aircraft needs to be carefully evaluated by Boeing, so the possibility of maintenance is relatively small.
Information of the 777 aircraft on fire: model: 777 pure cargo aircraft, registration number: et-arh, aircraft age: more than 5 years.
Fortunately, no one was injured in the fire.
At present, the Civil Aviation Administration has launched an investigation, waiting for the official investigation, do not query the cause of the accident.
I hope all planes, crew and passengers are safe and sound!
