Wall to wall coverage of an aviation incident, ladies and gentlemen...CNN is back!


Is this the one with a burned engine?

Also, this is footage from the day after the 2002 midterms. Back then, guess what the top story on the news alert was? SPOILER ALERT: CNN used to move on very quickly away from election-related stories.

Full marks to the passenger who shot the video of the engine on fire, for using landscape mode on their phone

Rather incredible footage. And, for once, totally acceptable to have a round of applause upon landing.

Indeed. In fact I was taken with what sounded like relaxed silence on board. I even heard laughter at one point ?

It's easy to say, sat here on the ground thousands of miles away, but those passengers were probably at less risk than the folk on the ground below them. Extraordinary there were no injuries on the ground ?

A sense of calm in the cockpit, a pilot remembering everything learnt during those hours of training in the simulator when they switch off one engine, and you can get modern civil aviation airplanes back on the ground for the airport fire services to spray the white foam around on the infield, and everyone to have a slide down the emergency shutes.

Looks worrying from the pictures, but at least the engine didn't fall off leading to a dangerous imbalance of weight distrubution leading to potential catestrophic sudden roll of the aircraft, and from there - the only way is quickly down - and a far different tone to the television coverage.

The United States has just passed 500,000 deaths from Coronavirus, according to Johns Hopkins University.

CNN announced this special, hosted by Jake Tapper, to air later tonight:

Great to see John Berman doing AC360. His style of interviewing is so relaxing, no rushing and let the guests fully speak.

In certain scenarios, namely an uncontained engine failure as seen here, the engines are actually designed to detach should it begin to vibrate or disintegrate to an extent where it’s better for it to go.

Really!? How on earth would that work in practice, and how would your deal with the sudden severe imbalance it would create? (putting aside the issue that dropping 20 tonnes of engine from the sky isn't a terribly good idea)

It doesn't necessarily have to happen in the sky either - it sometimes happens whilst still on the runway.

The aircraft would lurch violently to one side, alerting the pilots of a missing engine (until recently, the physical detachment of an engine was not alerted by any alarm in the cockpit. The aerodynamic behaviour of the aircraft would be the pilots’ first indication of a problem).

They would control the aircraft using the flight control surfaces with heavier rudder inputs to compensate for the single remaining engine on one side, which would - logically - attempt to make the aircraft turn in the air. Hard rudder in the opposite direction will bring the aircraft back on course.

Well, you did ask.............

Come on. It's another 6 weeks to go until April 1st

Engines fall do off unintentionally, of course
