2016-01-25 Korean Air Boeing 747-400 heavy damage on landing Jeju
On landing at Jeju Airport, one engine sustained heavy damage. The landing was safely completed and no one was hurt.
FLight KE 1275 landed on runway 24 at Jeju international Airport in darkness.
After arriving at the gate position, heavy damage was discovered on the right outer engine #4 (PW 4056). The lower casing, intake and cowlings were found bend and badly damaged.
More engine debris were found on the runway forcing airport authorities to close the runway for at least one hour until all debris was removed.
According to media sources, the engine damage indicate a possible podstrike immediately before touchdown as a result of an excessive bank angle.
There were also signs of overstress to the engine pylon.
The incident is under investigation.
Jeju Airport re-opened for traffic one day earlier after a complete shutdown because of intense snowfall leaving about 90.000 people stranded.
