Excerpt
Excerpt: On May 21, 1997, SkyWest Airlines flight 724, an Embraer EMB-120ER airplane, equipped with Pratt & Whitney of Canada (PWC) PWl18B turboprop engines, experienced a fire in the right engine nacelle following takeoff from the San Diego International-Lindbergh Field, San Diego, California. Flight 724 was operating under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 121 as a regularly scheduled passenger flight from San Diego to Los Angela, California. The 2 pilots, 1 flight attendant, and 14 passengers on board were not injured. The flightcrew reported that after takeoff from San Diego, the right engine lost power as the airplane was climbing through 2,000 feet. The pilots stated that they had been conducting the engine failure checklist when the right engine fire warning light came on. The passengers and flight attendant reported seeing flames coming from the right engine nacelle and exhaust. The pilots said that the fire was extinguished after they discharged both of the airplane?s fire extinguisher bottles. The flightcrew then observed hydraulic system and saw that all pressure had been lost on both hydraulic systems. The pilots diverted the airplane to Naval Air Station (NAS) Miramar, where they executed an emergency single-engine landing with the flaps retracted and no nose wheel steering. The flightcrew was unable to use single engine reverse thrust because of the lack of nose wheel steering, and the hydraulic brakes and the emergency braking system were inoperative. Although the airplane touched down on the first 2,000 feet of the 12,000 foot-long runway, it overran the departure end of the runway at an estimated speed of 20 to 30 knots and stopped about 1,300 feet beyond the end of the runway.
