Fire warning

Fly High English logo.

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


An ATR-72 with 26 people on board, was climbing out after takeoff when the flight crew received an engine fire warning. They shut down the engine, deployed the fire suppression system and the fire warning stopped. They returned to their airport of origin and made a safe landing about 21 minutes after departure. The passengers were able to disembark safely after landing. The aircraft was examined, but it isn’t yet known if there was really an engine fire, or if the fire warning was incorrect.
