With regard to the supposition that the engine problems may lie with the engine cowling clips. Yes the ground engineer who checked the engine oils could be the last person to have “secured” the cowling clips, but the member of the flight crew who carried out the pre-flight walk-round should have spotted the error. If the clips are in anything but the closed and locked position, they are very prominent and easily visible. Lets hope this was not the cause of this mornings problems.
