Incident at Vancouver, British Columbia


1996-05-17: The crew heard a loud bang while accelerating through 60 knots during the take off roll. The fan speed of the #3 engine dropped to zero. The crew rejected the take off, shut down the engine and returned to the gate. The cabin crew informed the flight crew that they had observed flames coming from the engine during the takeoff, so the captain fired a fire bottle as a precaution. The passengers were deplaned at the gate. The engine was removed and the TSB will be adivsed of the results of the teardown.
