A sure fright came aboard AirBridge Cargo flight 473 this morning over southern Canada. During the final few hours of the flight, the crew received a fire warning message in the number 2 engine @ 34,000 Feet! Having no choice but to divert and land safely, the crew decided to divert to Seattle Tacoma with three engines online and the number 2 engine off. Thankfully, the crew was able to land safely at the airport without further incident and taxied to the cargo ramp under own power.
