Hello again,

Latest news from here.

There was an uncontained failure of number three (starboard) engine which
resulted in damage to the number two engine probably from ejected fragments.

The crew coordination of the evacuation was very poor. The crew did not
speak Japanese, or assist greatly in the evacuation. The crew was Indonesian,
so made announcements about how to evacuate the aircraft in Indonesian
and English, and then left the aircraft! TV pictures showed the hostesses
standing in a group away from the fuselage while it burned.

Mark.
