SEBUAH retakan di mesin pesawat mengakibatkan jet British Airways terbakar di bandara Las Vegas sementara kapten, Chris Henkey (inset) dari Reading, Berkshire - dipuji sebagai pahlawan pada saat itu - namun harus disalahkan atas ´kekalutan evakuasi´, kata peneliti federal.

Seorang pramugari terluka parah setelah api membakar mesin pesawat di McCarran International pada September 2015. 157 penumpang dan 13 awak di pesawat Boeing 777-236ER jet, yang menuju London, dapat mengevakuasi tetapi pesawat secara substansial rusak oleh api.

Peneliti mengatakan Henkey mengambil 22 detik untuk mematikan bahan bakar ke mesin yang terbakar, dan dia menyerukan evakuasi sebelum menyelesaikan daftar periksa evakuasi. Dia mematikan mesin yang berhasil menghambat proses deplaning namun dituding melanggar standar operasional prosedur (SOP) evakuasi seperti dilansir MailOnline.

A CRACK in an engine caused the British Airways jet to burst into flames at Las Vegas airport while the captain, Chris Henkey (inset) from Reading, Berkshire - hailed as a hero at the time - was to blame for a ´chaotic evacuation´, federal investigators said. 

One flight attendant was seriously injured after fire ripped through the engine of the aircraft at McCarran International in September 2015. All 157 passengers and 13 crew on board the Boeing 777-236ER jet, which was bound for London, were able to evacuate but the plane was substantially damaged by fire. 

Investigators said Henkey took 22 seconds to shut off fuel to the engine that was on fire and that he called for an evacuation before completing an evacuation checklist. He left an engine running that hampered the deplaning process.
