Flight data monitoring can be a means to inform maintenance intervention

02 Aug 2016
On 12 December 2011, the crew of an aircraft delayed their response to an engine fire warning until the existence of a fire had been confirmed by visual inspection and then failed to follow the memory engine shutdown drill properly so that fire continued for considerably longer than it should have. The Investigation found that an improperly tightened fuel line coupling which had been getting slowly but progressively worse during earlier flights had caused the fire.
