On 26th August, after departing BOG at 0130 (LT) a Kalitta B747 reported engine failure and asked to return to BOG. It do so safely at 0230 after some circuits over Ambalema.

It is BOG where another Kalitta 747 crashed shortly after take off last 7th July, killing 3 people on the ground and injuring the members of crew -some seriously. That was the second hull loss of a kalitta 747 within months.

I heard on the last accident they where suspecting terrorist sabotage maybe there is something to it, bad fuel, wrench in the motor, it would not take a whole lot.

Kalitta does not do all of the engines; A's and J's I believe, but not the Q's or R's. Correct me if I am wrong. Let the lambasting begin!

They do the Qs.
Did for Tradewinds anyway, then they blew one on t/o, screved up the go/no-go decision and ran off the end at 80 knots. Also in Colombia, summer 2006.

A video is somewhere on the internet, search for Tradewinds crash.
