Re: Southwest engine went boom

Here is the obligatory cockpit crew bashing post: Sounds like they 1. simply followed engine failure/fire procedures and 2. continued to fly the plane. To heck with the embellished headlines. As to whether they did 2 based on fundamental rules or because it was on an Evan check list, who knows.

Re: What am I missing? A big IL 76

So I see in Wiki, that a wing caught on fire before it went down...reasonably accurate?

Re: Southwest engine went boom

Re: Southwest engine went boom

Sucked pax did died.
Per
Crap...initial reports cited no serous injuries.

Is this the first ever passenger death on Southwest?

For years they claimed no deaths, but then one of their over runs killed some folks in a car on a road next to the airport.

Re: Southwest engine went boom

Indeed - I have seen the jetphotos. Unfortunately they have several photographic issues. "Passenger partially sucked out of window" and other injuries. Her hair-do probably did died. I thought scientific engineers designed engines to not spew parts into aircraft. Will the normal debate about what c...

You are still alive...

Hiccups still occur in the aerospace system...

Discussions of those hiccups (though fewer of them) still occur here...

This is good.

Please share thoughts, speculation as well as important recommendations as to how the industry needs to improve.

That's not a Boeing. I was afraid of that.

The PROPER way to run an airline.

...and remember, lawyers have nothing to do with your modern business practices. OK- total serious mode- no real message here- just a brief grin and interesting look at the olden days. I think most of us miss loud, smoky low-bypass engines as much as more liberal seat pitches and meals. History.JPG

Beautiful People "Tweet" during takeoff roll.

So, there's some indication they had a plane full of people and fuel (I.E. overweight) AND maybe the attention to detail was off? (although it could just as well be a meteor strike or something catastrophic and mechanical). https://www.yahoo.com/news/instagram-model-mariah-coogan-shares-192604403.ht...
