American Airlines Flight 383

Another Aircraft Engine Fire Endangers Lives of Passengers and Crew

American Airlines Flight 383, bound from Chicago to Miami, erupted in an engine fire on the Boeing 767 aircraft shortly before takeoff on October 28. Fortunately, no lives were lost, but this occurrence raises questions as to a potentially recurring problem.

Wisner Law Firm recently settled the claims of 109 passengers and crew of British Air flight 2276 arising from an engine fire on another Boeing aircraft in Las Vegas. Hopefully, the NTSB will fully investigate any similarities between these serious occurrences.

Wisner Law Firm concentrates its practice in aviation litigation and has represented passengers and crew on several other flights involving engine and mechanical failures resulting in emergency or crash landings, including BA 738, Qantas 72, BA 762, and LOT 16.
