The crew had to abort the flight and make an emergency landing in connection with the failure of the right engine. It is known that shortly before on the panel of engine control liquid spills.

A similar incident was recorded in November of last year. Then an hour after one of the pilots spilled on the Central dashboard tea, the aircraft suddenly went off the right engine.

Both aircraft made landing in a regular mode, as a result of the incident none of the members of the aircrew and passengers were not injured. According to preliminary data, the cause of the incident in both cases there was a “spill liquids”, but the details are still being investigated.

It is noted that Airbus and Rolls-Royce intend to develop recommendations on how to interact with liquids on Board.
