As mentioned by my colleague Monsieur Pepe le Peu, QRC or what used to be called Emergencies are quite similar in aircraft types.
In the B744:
Engine Fire () 0r Severe Damage or Separation.
PF: Fly the Airplane
Master Warning Lights and Bell, Engine Fire Shutoff Handle, and Fuel Control Switch
There are NO IMMEDIATE action steps- GO TO QRC
1. Throttle ………Confirm, And then pull to IDLE
2. Fuel Control Switch(es):………Confirm, and then Pull up and back to CUTOFF
3. Engine Fire Handle:………Confirm, Pull (Pulling Handles CLOSES: Fuel, Air, Electrical, Hydraulics and ARMS EXTINGUISHER)
4. If Fire Message Displayed: Fire Handle………Rotate
5. If Fire Message remains after 30 seconds: Fire Handle………Rotate in Opposite Direction.
IF “HIGH” Airframe Vibration Occurs:
6. Airspeed and/or Altitude………Reduce
Vibration may be reduced by changing airspeed/altitude. If however, reducing didn’t work…consider increasing speed.
Note: It may seem that the “Severe” vibration is about to shake the airplane to pieces, but the Boeing guys tell us that is “UNLIKELY” that the vibration will damage the airplane or critical systems. Of course, they were sitting at their engineer’s desk when they made that statement.
7. Transponder………TA ONLY
The idea here is to avoid some spurious RA. I DISAGREE with that for two reasons.
FIRST: It is common for the 747-400 to be cruising at it’s highest performance altitude commensurate with fuel considerations. This would preclude any “CLIMB-CLIMB” RAs from being responded to anyway. Further, if the airplane is cruising in RVSM, it becomes critical to avoid contact with another airplane as the driftdown starts.
Second: The simulator seldom takes into account the fact that an airplane in distress will most likely be transiting both tracks and altitudes assigned to other airplanes. In reality, if in MNPS, or NCA, or other Oceanic airspace there will be no ATC radar support and it is up to the pilots of the airplane in distress to avoid other airplanes.
My argument is for the pilots to assess the situation BEFORE shutting off the RA on the transponder.
8. If Fire continues: Land at the Nearest Suitable Airport
9. Three/Two Engine Approach and Landing Checklist (Flight Handbook 7-92)………Complete
10. Complete a FLAMEOUT/COMPRESSOR STALL/THRUST LOSS REPORT
