67-044 caught fire inflight on Friday, March 13 1987, pilots never got a fire warning lite, only a engine oil hot lite. If I recall correctly it was caused by the fuel control on the engine had some kind of defect, spilling raw fuel into the #1 engine bay. Pilots shut down engine after being unable to correct the oil lite, most likely saving the jet. That day we had chaff in the dispensers on #1 side and the fire melted the chaff together and burned a hole in the dispenser air tank. Flares were on the #2 side, had they been reversed the jet would most likely be sitting in the Nevada desert some where. I maintained 7044 on two seperate occassions.(86- 88, 90-92) It was my pride and joy. Old jets never fly, they just in up in the bone yard. I've got three sitting there.
