How would you like to look out the window and see this? Today over Colorado. The plane (Boeing 777) landed safely and no one hurt.
Plane heads cross country losses a engine. Pilot comes over loudspeaker and says it can fly with 3 but will take a extra hour to arrive. It losses another engine and the pilot says we are still fine but will be two hours later on arrival. After losing the third engine the pilot calms the passengers and tells everyone the plane can fly with just one engine. Blonde leans over and says "hope we don't lose the last engine, we will be up here all day"
It was probably hydraulic oil or engine oil. Also they are not sure how well the fire extinguishers were working with the cowling missing. It might have just been blow away in the 200 mph wind.Okay, if you shut the fuel off to the dead engine why is it still on fire? Or is that just sparks from the engine still turning from the air flowing through.?
