Philippine Airlines Flight 113 (also known as PR113 or PAL113) was a scheduled Philippine Airlines international passenger flight on November 21, 2019 from Los Angeles International Airport, Los Angeles, United States to Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Pasay, Philippines. Shortly after takeoff, the right engine of the Boeing 777-3F6ER serving the flight caught on fire and was forced to return back to Los Angeles International Airport. The plane made an emergency landing with all of the 347 passengers and 18 crew members uninjured.[4][5][6]

Incident[edit]

Philippine Airlines Flight 113 was preparing a 15-hour flight from Los Angeles International Airport to Ninoy Aquino International Airport. At around 11:45 AM local time, shortly after takeoff, the right engine caught fire,[7] passengers witnessed loud bangs and flames coming from engine 2.[8] According to the Philippine Airlines spokeswoman Cielo Villaluna stated that one of the Boeing 777's engine started receiving technical problems and burst into flames shortly after takeoff, which Captain Triston Simeon decided to turn back to Los Angeles International Airport to declare an emergency landing. The plane had a successful emergency landing at around 12:00 PM local time on runway 25 and was met by the Los Angeles Fire Department, the airport said.[9][10][11][8][12] No injuries were reported to the 347 passengers and crew.[4][5][13]

The cause of the engine fire was initially speculated to be a "classic compressor stall", the Federal Aviation Administration has yet to determine an official cause.[14]

The aircraft was a 7-year old Boeing 777-3F6ER, registration RP-C7775, serial number 35555 and was built in 2012.[15][16]

Aftermath[edit]

Passengers of the flight were also given meals and hotel accommodation.[12][13] The flight crew appreciated the passengers because of their patience and calmness during the incident.[17][18] The flight number PR113 is still being used today.[19]
