  1. This is a perfect day for the crew of the Air New Zealand MD-11. That is until… … a fire starts in engine number 2. A suitable alternate airport is now required. But first, the crew has to extinguish the fire… And also cut the fuel in the number 2 engine. The closest suitable airport is Port Moresby International (AYPY). A quick right turn and the MD-11 heads to its new destination. Gear down and 50 degree flaps. This landing will be a no brainer. A bit more thrust than usual for the remaining engines is all that is required. The weather is lovely today. It is impossible to use the thrust reverser on engine number 2 (in the tail). Normal breaking and the use of the two remaining thrust reversers are plenty for the MD-11. Welcome to Port Moresby international airport! The crew will have to wait for another Air New Zealand aircraft to take on the passengers before they are authorized ( or not) by the company to take-off empty with the two remaining engines and head to New Zealand. Cheers!
