The ATSB is investigating an engine malfunction involving Airbus A330, registered 9M-XXE, near Carnarvon, Western Australia, on 25 June 2017.

As a result of an in‑flight engine fault, the aircraft was subjected to moderate airframe vibration. The flight crew elected to return to Perth.

As part of the investigation the ATSB will:

  • interview personnel involved
  • examine the engine damage
  • download and analyse data from the flight data and cockpit voice recorders.

A report will be released within several months.
