British Airways Engine Fire on Takeoff JFK

Man, that controller sounded like he's handled hundreds of these. It landed at about 11:41 and for some reason the next archive didn't take so this is not the complete incident.

British Airways Engine Fire on Takeoff JFK

What I like is the other aircraft on Tower Frequency Asking Is there an Emergency, and then The Pilot says "Oh Yeah He's On fire"  Probably in his head thinking OH $hit, He's on Fire.  THen I love the other comment "Does he know that he is on fire?"  I guess knowing when you are on fire is always a good thing.

can someone post the tracon clip for this if they have it? i assume most of his comms were with him since the tower was not talking to him after soon after takeoff... also, what time did this happen? anyone seen a video clip on cnn or something yet?

Where are the clips?

I'm a newbie here and am really enjoying these amazing clips. But in many postings (sometimes it seems like half of them) I don't see the clip address anywhere in the exchange. What am I missing? Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for your help.

Forum software was changed a while ago.  Some of the attached clips were lost, some remained.
