Discussion on today's Boeing 777 airline incident by a 777 pilot.



I follow this guy's YouTube channel for specifics on any aircraft incident large or small. Very knowledgeable and thorough.

4. Not a big problem even if over pacific

Watch the video. Airline pilots train for this kind of problem and aircraft are designed to fly on one engine. Airline travel is clearly the safest mode of transportation.

9. I get it. But it seems way better to be able to turn it around

and head back to DEN than to have this happen hundreds of miles from land. I agree it is safe, and this would not deter me from traveling by air after Covid is more controlled.

5. It looks ugly, but I don't think it was really all that bad.

You can see that the turbine core is intact and continues to windmill. This probably wouldn't happen if it was a turbine blade failure, as it would most likely take out the core. The burning part looks like the vents for the reverse thrust ducts, which may have been ignited during the failure. Not a good day, but it looks like it failed in a controlled manner, which is what it's designed to do.

6. Another thing I like about Juan Brown's channel is....

he always follows these initial reports with all the NTSB's interim and final reports as they are issued. The final may take a year or more to be made public.

He made several on the Kobe Bryant helicopter crash that were good.
