Re: Malaysia Airlines 777-200 Missing...
Can anyone direct me to the emergency procedure for a 777 electrical fire?
Having had one in a Cobra is far different than a fly-by-wire (FBW) airliner, but it was damned hard to breathe.
The procedure was to check all the pressure instruments and warning lights, turn off the generator and battery to de-energize the entire system and (hopefully) put out the fire, pull all the DC circuit breakers, turn on the generator then push in the breakers one at a time to isolate the bad circuit.
Obviously shutting down ALL the power wouldn't be plausible on a FBW airplane that relies heavily on a flight director/autopilot but going to minimum power would account for lack of communication and transponder signals. Then, if the crew was overcome the autopilot just kept on flying until fuel exhaustion.
