Summary

1997-03-04: The crew were unsuccessful in starting the #1 engine. After three unsuccessful attempts, the passengers were disembarked for the mandatory 0.5 hour starter cool down period. Company maintenance was consulted about the start failure. After the passengers were reboarded, the #1 engine was started. ITT in start was normal, but as the captain was monitoring the torque indications, the ground handler indicated to the first officer that there was a tailpipe fire. The engine was shut down.
