So tonight I'm flying around SoCal in X-Plane, just playing in the mountains... In a 747 no less. I was just minding my own business when I got a fire warning light and the master caution started screaming at me. I had a fire in number one engine. The sim doesn't have fire handles or extinguishers but I still managed to get it shut down. I killed the start switch, batt, gen, fuel boost pump, and evenentially the throttle. The fire looked to go out, but there was still quite a bit of smoke from the engine. I declared an emergency. I didn't know the area very well and didn't have any of my charts out. ATC directed me to KPOC (Brackett Field Airport, La Verne). It's a halfway decent size run way. Lil' bit narrow, but still landable. I kicked on the autobreaks and spoilers, kicked out the flaps and gear and headed down. It was a straight in approach landing on 26L. I couldn't have made a prettier approach. Nearly a direct head wind I thought would give me a nice slow ground speed for touchdown. It wasn't so. It was VERY gusty even if it was right now the runway. I had to carry a bit more speed than I would have liked. This of course casued me to float long. With just barely 4800 feet of runway I didn't have much room to spare. I floated and finally touched down about 1/3 of the way down the runway, with nose gear finally coming down about 1/2 way down. I jammed on the binders and tried to stop. I probally should have dumped fuel on the way in but I didn't. I was pretty heavy. I didn't immediatly throw back the thrust reversers with an inop engine. That could be problems. I finally, about 3/4 down, decided to at least extend the TR's and about the time I went past the overrun and through the lights I went to full reverse. I finally did stop, about 10 or 15 foot from a rather large embankment. I'm sure that wouldn't have been very good on it. Anyway, here's some pics of the aftermath. Crash Photo's
P.S. Notice how far off center I drifted after using the reversers with an engine out.
