Food for thought

OldEric says ;-( H'mm Air New Zealand had another mishap with one of their planes reported today, the 4th one lately. Dropped the bits out of one of the engines. A passenger on Australian TV9 news said he saw a series of bits flying past his window. A TV picture showed a large expanse of engine cowling missing.

The plane turned back to Australia on one engine and the passengers were told to get into crash landing mode......just in case. Scary. Yes, the plane did landed safely.

Pat said what happens if our 747-400 drops an engine half way across the Pacific? And I said well they have 3 others to fly with and Air NZ says a 747-400 can fly on one engine. They can, can't they??
