(Now the audio isn't the best, but it's Bridgetown, Barbados !!!  Amazed really.)

A JetBlue flight bound for Boston was forced to make a return to Bridgetown, Barbados after experiencing an engine failure after takeoff on 4 June 2024.  Flight crew immediately terminated the climb and declared an emergency with transponder code 7700.

The flight then negotiated a direct return to the origin airport of Bridgetown (BGI), Barbados.  Flight data shows that flight B61844 bound for Boston Logan International Airport made a delayed departure out of Bridgetown.

The flight shows an actual time of departure of 1838 local time against the scheduled departure time of 1243 local time on 4 June.  The aircraft was only approximately 10 minutes out from its departure when the climb was terminated and flight crew squawked code 7700.

The JetBlue flight then conducted a wide circuit for a direct return to Sir Grantley Adams International Airport.

The aircraft conducting the B61844 rotation to Boston was an Airbus A320-200 aircraft, registered N586JB. This is a 20 year old narrowbody aircraft belonging to the US carrier JetBlue Airways.

Negative, that is not what happened! No engine failure at all ...
