CAA bans Boeing 737 max 8

It is remarkable that the plane could actually land safely given the condition of that engine.
Whilst somewhat disconcerting to see and bloody scary for the pax - in terms of flying, with the fire contained its not much worse** than a broken Donk - Its not affecting the flight charecteristics much beyond that.

It would have made a loud bang and shook the aircraft and that will make your arse go 20p 50p





**Its going to be a little more draggy perhaps as the aerodynamic fairing has buggerred off

As a colleague of mine put it, they still had the engine and wing attached on landing safely...... the aircraft did its job reasonably well all things considered

In hindsight I would love to have been on that flight! I have an adrenaline issue. The biggest memorys you survive can be seconds and stay with you forever.

Showing your age there, sixpence half a crown ;-)

You mad chap.
I have no fascination for incidents you can't run away from, throw at a junior or call fire support for. As I get older, over excitement is never good for my sanity or my laundry.
