Descripción:
En route to Khartoum, the no. 1 engine caught fire. The engine was shut down, fire handles pulled and the prop was feathered. The captain decided to return to Cairo. A belly landing was carried out on runway 36.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "Pilot error. It would appear that he showed a poor knowledge of airmanship in these particulars; 1. The fire warning system had not operated nor had the automatic extinguishers , indicating that the nacelle temperature could not have risen appreciably. The extinguisher had been manually operated. 2. He should not have restarted the defective motor after a fire and with almost a full load. 3. If the main undercarriage systems had failed to function, he should have operated Nos 1 & 2 emergency systems."
